Cheap SuperBowl Food - What are you making?



Way back when (During Grad School and the first few years after entering job market as a lowly drug plant chemist) we did social stuff with other (poor) young married people. Now days our "bring a dish" social gatherings tend to look like "Epicureans on Parade" photoshoots for Food and Wine Magazine.

I kin'da miss the old days. Here is a very old and very poor (think cheap)football party treat. I think we are staying home for the superbowl and I may fix this for the dog and me.

Drunk Weenies:

Need:

1 or 2 packages of Hotdog franks. Buy all meat, but not the big (jumbo) ones. Stick to the slim sized dogs we all had as little kids.

1 beer - your brand, but we never spent much money on the beer back in those days.

Half a bottle (makes the finished product hot!) to a full bottle (takes it to ouch!) of your favorite Tobasco style sauce. (I like LA Gold). I guess you could go with Thai Sriracha pepper sauce if you have a desire to die a painful death.

In those days I knew all about Thai Pepper Sauce, but I had no knowledge of the 16 million Scoville index (measured by HPLC) pure capsaicin in the warehouse where I work. A little of that stuff goes a long way but you must have a license to purchase or handle it.

Cut franks into 3/4 inch pieces. Put in a small boiler. Pour beer over the dog pieces. Pour hot sauce over the beer pieces. Stir and bring to a low boil. Put the lid on the boiler and cook until the liquid is pretty much gone.

DO NOT BURN THE DOGS.

Dump in a bowl and artfully place a box of toothpicks along side bowl.

Be careful with Tabasco or Thai Sriracha sauce addition as not everyone may share your love of hot weenie heat.

What are your favorite poorfolks horderves?

cocktail weenies soaked in Bourbon and Brown Sugar wrapped in smoked bacon then grilled or broiled, I've also stuffed the cocktail weenies into candied dates then wrapped them in bacon, very tasty.

shite I'll just eat Vienna Sausages before I go to all that boiler trouble.

And for this Superbowl I'll probably go with potted meat ( Cajun caviar) and saltines.

Bookmarked your cocktail weenies. They look delicious, and don't think I'll wait until Sunday to make them.

I can understand that. My memories are that they were tasty. Of course I was 40 years younger back then.
