Wiener Wednesday: Sausage Boatees

Sausage Boatees

This week’s Wiener Wednesday is especially exciting for two reasons:

1. The dish is called Sausage Boatees. Boatee is totally not a word. I looked it up. But you know what is? BOOTY. So these will be known as Sausage Booties. Which, like so many dishes I make for Wiener Wednesday, sounds kinda porny (which actually is a word according to Merriam-Webster).

2. This recipe comes from the 1967 set of Marguerite Patten recipe cards!!! Yes, thanks to Kim over at The Bad and Ugly of Retro Food, I finally own a set. I’ve wanted these ever since I saw Milk Chicken on the interwebs. It was love at first sight.


Banana slices, bitches!

Don’t fret, Milk Chicken WILL happen.

DSCF4788I made the Sausage Booties, from the Egg & Cheese Dishes chapter, for lunch on Saturday because the pork sausage links made me think of brunch.

The recipe states, “processed or Dutch cheese” so I went for processed Dutch cheese: Gouda.

It’s odd that the sausage is cooked and nothing else. You’d think that with the pineapple the entire thing would be broiled, no?

My cheese, although a processed cheese product, didn’t fold. It wasn’t pliable enough. So maybe I should have let it sit out for a bit? Since it wasn’t bendy, the cheese just broke when I tried to wrap it around the sausage. The Boatee was a lame kabob of pineapple/cheese/sausage/cheese/pineapple. Oh, with chutney in there. And what’s with cutting into the sausage to put in the chutney? What’s so wrong with simply spreading it?

Here is the complete Sausage Booty:

It didn’t taste bad, but eating the booty (sorry, boatee) was an ordeal–there was no way to eat it gracefully. And I think that it was definitely intended to be a finger food–the card calls it a “light snack”–but it was impossible to get all of the ingredients in one bite. Damn toothpick.

Sausage Boatees is definitely one of the odder dishes I have made. And that’s saying something! The Marguerite Patten Recipe Card Set is a kickass early Christmas gift. I am going to have SO MUCH FUN with these recipe cards.

  1. Gadzooks – these are brilliant – Jx

  2. I love a good booty… not too big, not too small, well formed. Not smelly.

  3. “Banana slices, bitches!” I think out of all the Foodie reading I’ve ever done, yours is the best I’ve come across. I await milk chicken with horror! 🙂

    The white chicken scares me. And the boattiees are kind of gross. Perhaps, Velveeta would have worked better? I do love Velveeta.

    What is Dutch cheese? Edam? Gouda?

  6. Erica says:

    Well, yuck… that looks all kinds of weird, but what can you expect from the people who brought you milk chicken?

    Is Milk Chicken a lo-cal version of Milk Steak? ( Do you serve it with raw jelly beans?
