You may be saying to yourself, what? Huh? But I thought that Wiener Wednesdays were over!
Well, you’re right. Wiener Wednesdays are over.
But I realized that this week is the 1-year anniversary of Wiener Wednesdays, and since July is National Hot Dog Month, I felt obligated to somehow crown the achievement that was (almost*) 52 straight weeks of wieners.
And that’s what I did–literally. I crowned it. I present to you, from The Better Homes & Gardens Meat Cook Book, the Frank and Corn Crown.
So let’s get to it:
So there is the stuffing. A delectable mix of assorted canned corns, margarine, bread cubes, and raw eggs. And no seasoning whatsoever. Delicious.
That mixture is topped with bread crumbs and baked. Then the hot dogs are shoved in and baked some more.
I used turkey franks. I HAD to use the turkey franks–they’ve been taking up valuable real estate in my freezer. It was their time to go.
But because of that particular meat color that only turkey franks (well, and maybe Vienna Sausages) possess, the Frank and Corn Crown looks like a lot of different things depending on how you look at it:
For instance, zombie fingers coming out of the ground to grab your face and eat your brains.Or a hot tub full of bald dudes:
Or, well, you can decide for yourself what you think the single-serving looks like:
make me want to gag Well, I’m just setting myself up for that one (go ahead, insert your favorite fellatio joke here). But it’s true. These pics are gag-worthy. There is something so gross about these photos. I feel a little queasy looking at them.
I can’t believe that I ate this after I plated it. Can you? LOOK AT IT! I could only get a few bites in. I mean, this was utterly unappetizing. Why?
- Turkey Franks blow.
- The consistency of a creamed corn-based stuffing is just as you imagine it would be.
- There was absolutely no flavor other than bland.
- Direct your attention to the last two photographs.
But at least it gave me a reason to bust out my patriotic table cloth and use my tiny Early American Pyrex. Cute, right?
I do think that this could be a pretty good dish if you used a quality sage stuffing (hell, even just some Stove Top) and some nice sausage links. But that is not what Better Homes & Gardens wanted me to do.
And let’s face it, you, my friends, wouldn’t want that for me, either. Wiener Wednesday was never really meant to be enjoyed by me, now was it?
I still have a boat load of weenie recipes, so maybe one day I’ll come back to this. But in the meantime–does anyone have a good idea for another food-themed day?
