  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 8 all-natural hot dogs, cut into thirds
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 8 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup erythritol
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, optional


  1. Heat oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat.

    Add hot dogs and cook for 2 minutes.

  2. Add onion and cook another 3 minutes.

  3. Add the cranberries, water, erythritol, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder.

  4. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Don't be alarmed. The mixture will temporarily turn green as the baking soda neutralizes the acid in the cranberries. Note: This step is optional.
