French Onion Gourmet Hot Dog on the Arteflame Grill

French Onion Dogs on the Arteflame Grill

Gourmet Hot Dogs with Caramelized Onions and Gruyere Recipe by Johan Magnussen @Big Swede BBQ

Experience gourmet hot dogs like never before with Johan Magnussen's @Big Swede BBQ recipe. Grilled on the Arteflame, these franks are topped with caramelized onions, Gruyere, and a special sour cream mix.

Cooked on the Arteflame Grill

Serves: 4


  • 4 hot dog buns
  • 4 quarter-pound beef franks
  • 3 yellow onions
  • 2 Tbs fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 bag beefy onion soup mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 8 oz Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Oil, for grilling


  1. Prepare the Onion Sour Cream Mix:

    • In a small bowl, mix together the beefy onion soup mix and sour cream. Set aside.
  2. Prepare and Cook the Onions:

    • Cut the ends off the onions, slice in half, and remove the outer layer. Core the onions and slice them thinly lengthwise.
    • Heat up the Arteflame plancha to medium heat. Oil the plancha and add the sliced onions.
    • Grill for about 20 minutes, flipping frequently, until caramelized. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill the Beef Franks:

    • Score a light criss-cross pattern on both sides of the beef franks.
    • Place the franks on the plancha and grill, turning occasionally until cooked through.
  4. Melt the Cheese on Onions:

    • Once the onions are caramelized, divide them into four piles on the plancha.
    • Season each pile with fresh thyme leaves.
    • Sprinkle 2 oz of shredded Gruyere cheese over each onion pile.
    • Cover with a dome or lid until the cheese is melted.
  5. Assemble the Hot Dogs:

    • Spread the onion/sour cream mixture inside each bun.
    • Place a grilled beef frank in each bun.
    • Carefully lift each onion and cheese pile from the plancha and place on top of the beef franks.
  6. Serve:

    • Serve the gourmet hot dogs immediately and enjoy the unique combination of flavors.

Testimonial Barbecue Bible 5/5 stars If the mythic gods of fire had an earthly temple, the Arteflame grill could serve as it's baptismal font. Its design, at once primeval and modern, symbolizes mankind's relationship with the awesome power of fire.
Testimonial Martha Stewart
Testimonial Martha Stewart 5/5 stars I love this grill - it's made of half-inch carbon steel and corten "weathering" steel with a cooktop that heats from the center out.
Testimonial Steven Raichlen
Testimonial Steven Raichlen 5/5 stars It looks like a Claus Oldenburg sculpture. It functions like a wood burning grill & plancha. It's great for steak, fragile fish, veggies and everything in between.
