2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
2 cooking onions, sliced
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each granulated sugar, salt and pepper

Beer-Braised Onions: In skillet, heat butter over medium heat; cook onions, sugar, salt and pepper for 5 minutes or until onions are tender. Stir in beer; cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes or until onions are golden and no liquid remains in the pan.
Meanwhile, grill hot dogs according to package directions.

Tip: For a lighter topping, replace sour cream with low-fat sour cream or low-fat Greek yogurt.
