Mental! Ha ha, these were bonkers but utterly delicious. I loved the recipe. Basically, fill your grill pan (brolier pan) with baked beans then sprinkle some parsley and brown sugar on top.
Then split some frankfurters, bung on some mustard and dill pickles
slap them back together and wrap them in bacon. Balance them on the grill rack over the beans and broil / grill. Mmmmmmmmm.
Genius. I think when I get a craving for these again (they are the kind of thing that you think about when you want something really unhealthy but scrumptious) I will look for shorter, fatter frankfurters and use streaky bacon. When you grill them, the bacon fat drips down onto the beans. Oh yes! I think I would warm the beans up first too, not sure my grill is hot enough to warm them through during the grilling process. Thanks for this genius way of cooking wieners Richard!
These put me in mind of the Vincent Price’s Stuffed Frankfurters I made during the Vincentennial Cookblog project. They had cheese in the middle… Whenever I make anything with frankfurters (which isn’t often as I am ENGLISH) I think of the much missed Wiener Wednesdays over at Dinner Is Served.
Man, Yinzerella must have eaten a LOT of frankfurters over the years, and nipping over to her blog has reminded me that I must make one of these for my next party…
I have about 5 frankfurters left so might make a Vincent Price’s Hotchpotch of Curly Kale (superfood Kale balancing out the pork product?) or the intriguing concept that is Tony Curtis’ Frankfurter Goulash…?!
Those bacon wrapped dogs look a little obscene.
I made ANOTHER weenie wreath for Christmas this year. I’ll have to post it soon!
Ha ha, if they look obscene to YOU, Lord knows what they will look like to a normal person! Weenie wreath is a good name for a band…
I think I’ll be skipping these as I’m not fond of dill or sweet/savory mixes but this was a great read and I’m glad you enjoyed them so much!
Ta doll. I know frankfurters are bad, but sometimes they are good!
I am intrigued by the frankfurter recipe in the Hawaii section of the Treasury and am considering making that for the cook along, but can’t decide.
Ooh, I don’t think I’ve made that one, should go on my “to-do” list x
