Macaroni with Wiener Sauce


Scroll to the bottom for more details!



1 small onion, diced

3 stalks celery, diced

A few tablespoons vegetable oil, for sauteeing

68 Lepp’s hot dogs, sliced into rounds

1 can Campbell’s tomato soup

½ of soup can filled with milk or cream

¼ of soup can filled with water, if sauce seems too thick

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp. Paprika

Salt and pepper, to taste


Heat medium sized frying pan, add oil. When oil is hot, saute onion and celery over medium heat until softened.

Add hot dog slices and continue to saute until they are lightly browned.

Add rest of ingredients, taste and adjust for seasoning.

Simmer gently over medium heat for 10-15 minutes. That’s it.

Serve over cooked macaroni with a side of peas, of course.

As a new bride I worked at Hooge’s Fabrics in Abbotsford, (long-time Abbotsford residents will remember them!) and my co-worker, Kathy, shared this recipe with me. Remember, this was the early 80’s. It was always served with a side of peas, and became a favorite of Rob’s, as well as two of our three children. I may have permanently scarred our son as he hated this meal, but was forced to eat this when I needed a quick dinner!  He hates peas to this day. I’m sorry, son.
