Wiener Wednesday: Swiss-Frank Roll-Ups

Well, earlier this week I shared with you the New Year’s Eve Bubbly that my mum and I served up at our girls’ party; now I present to you the weenie portion of the party (of course there was a weenie dish!). This is, from Better Homes & Gardens Cooking with Cheese (1968), the appropriately named Swiss-Frank Roll-Ups. Because it’s a tiny Frankfurter with Swiss cheese all wrapped in biscuit dough. Duh.

Swiss-Frank Roll-Ups

I don’t know why the recipe wanted me to put the cheese IN the cocktail weenie, but I wasn’t going to question the masterminds at Better Homes & Gardens. Swiss cocktail weenie

I followed the directions and ended up with a tray of these:

Swiss-Frank Roll-UpsThey look a lot like Nic’s British Sausage Rolls (which are divine) and were just as  tasty. I do love me a biscuit-ensconced cocktail weenie (see: Weenie Wreath) but this one was extra-special because of the cheese. Glorious cheese! All wrapped up in buttery doughy goodness. And the sesame seeds made them extra-pretty! This is definitely a winner, kittens. And ridiculously easy. Try it for your next shindig.

    Oh, sure. You’ll whip this up for your mom and your lady friends. But what about me? That dish has Steeler Sunday written all over it.

  2. Mmm – they look SCRUMPTIOUS! I am tempted to nip out of work and get me a Gregg’s Sausage Roll right now!

    I left this unread in my bookmarks and only now got around to it, which is unfortunate because I had to take something for a potluck last week and this would have been perfect. Those sesame seeds take it up to the next level visually, I’m really impressed!!!
