This week’s selection is Frank Triangles.
I am seriously in love with the names of these recipes from the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook collection. Frank Triangles sounds like a mafia goon: That Frankie Triangles is a rat, boss. Let’s bury him in the Meadowlands next to Hoffa!
Frank Triangles comes to us from the BG&H Meat Cook Book (1971 edition). And yes, your eyes are not deceiving you–on the back cover there is an image of some sort of frankfurter bake. I can only imagine what horrors are hidden under that golden crust and weenie ring. Actually, it looks as though there are a lot of sausage-shaped foodstuffs in those photos. With this cookbook I may have just stumbled upon the mother lode. MEAT. COOK. BOOK.
OK, ingredients together. Let’s go!
But here they are, once I got them unattached from the broiler and served with some of my favorite Caesar salad.
What a jumbled mess. But like so many other things I have made during my time with DiS!, it tasted a hell of a lot better than it looked. This whole hot dog/mustard/Parmesan/onion combo was very tasty. And it was on buttered bread. Yum. But honestly, these weenies just as easily could have been done in a bun and then put in the broiler (alas, wouldn’t be Frank Triangles). But seriously, Better Homes & Gardens, why oh why oh why was the cheese on the outside?
It doesn’t matter how tasty the dish is, I don’t like it when I have to actually take out the broiler pan and scrub it. I mean look at this:
It’s just SAD. Not only was I headed from some dishpan hands, that was a waste of some perfectly good Parmesan cheese.
