I found this recipe late one night while traipsing across the internet. The site is Retro Food for Modern Times, which featured a little gem of a cookbook called Singers & Swingers in the Kitchen: The Scene-Makers Cook Book (1967).
“Dozens of nutty, turned-on, easy-to-prepare recipes from the grooviest gourmets happening!”
Well with a tagline like that, this cookbook was just begging for it.
Lucky for me (and the world) Singers & Swingers features multiple frankcentric dishes. And maybe I’ll eventually get to all of them, but for today, I chose the one that I thought had the best name:
Hot Dogs on the Rocks….ain’t no surprise…
OK, it’s not by Neil. This recipe is from The Rolling Stones!
Baked beans, eh?
When I think of baked beans I automatically go to this:
And I am sure that I’m not the only one–but that’s the wrong band.
Although, with all that Ann-Margret rolling around on what looks like a giant sausage link, I think we have found the official Wiener Wednesday dance. Someone gif that shit!
Anyway, here’s what I started with:
And after making everything in the microwave, here’s what I ended up with:
This dish was, in its own way, actually good. I mean, it’s instant mashies, pork and beans, and a hot dog. I forgot that I liked baked beans!
This wasn’t what I wanted to eat for dinner (I then went and made some beans and greens for myself), but I can definitely see the appeal for the Stone(r)s. This would be awesome at the end of a night of drinking and you have that craving for just—something. Or the day after when you need some sustenance that’s soft and fatty and kinda bland. I put this in a little container and froze it. For emergency use!
