Oh! The things you can do with wieners!

Serving up some leftovers! :

Greetings dear Swapatorium readers!

I bring you this lovely Wiener Crown Roast
to delight and amaze!

It is fully endorsed by Dr. Stupid, I might add.






So are you amazed? Are you just dying to make one of these to impress or depress your friends and family? It would be the perfect dish to bring to your bi-weekly Wieners are Wonderful meeting. Just call around first to make sure that someone else isn't bringing the same thing... That would be oh so embarassing! Read on for the behind the scenes secrets!

I based my Crown O' Wieners after these two images* of wieners in action:























However both of the above recipes have cabbage/sour kraut shacking up in the middle...sooo not happening in my house! I decided to alter the innards to something else that I thought would be more appetizing, afterall, folks I do have to eat these meals. (I used cornbread and chili). I have no recipe measurements to offer only how to construct this. I made a pan of cornbread and cut out 2 round same size pieces. First, slice hotdogs lengthwise stopping short of the outer skin so both sides stay connected. Next, take one piece of the cornbread, place on plate and start toothpicking (not sure that is a real word but you get what i mean!) opened wieners into cornbread. Add some chili in middle section placing the other piece of cornbread on top (toothpick same as earlier). Fill to the top with more chili. The green onion ribbon is to hide the toothpicks and adds a bit of extra stability and flair. Garnish that baby up because we all know that garnish makes a meal taste better because it looks better! That's just a little bit of advice that I offer for free, next time it'll cost you.

ps... I like having any excuse I can find to say the word "wieners"....It makes me laugh.


Enjoy!

Update! Looky what i found at a thriftstore this weekend!!!!! The complete set of WeightWatcher's recipe cards!!!! I won't be making the "Makerally" but there are quite a few other disturbing recipes/images that are going to be turning stomachs in the near future around here..............


and i forgot to mention this in the swapatorium post but there is a flicker group by a chic that was written a book on a few of the recipes from this weightwatchers series (thanks amanda for sending me that link!)It's worth a look-see.

Oh my God, Mary you made my day! I'm having a grill out Sun. How much fun would it be to present that thing with an air of shy pride? Eeeee....

Can I just say...I freakin' *love* that plate in the pictures. The weinies, eh, not so much.

Too awesome! Especially how the ends of the hot dogs bend out like little supports. I love it.
Will you slice into it like a pie??

I think I might actually make this someday for a kids' party. With baked beans in the middle.

Oh Mary, just when I think you can't make anything stranger, you end up whipping up a whopper of a wiener meal! I want you to have your own Food Network Show. No, really, I do. Thanks again for your hard work in keeping us amused and well fed at Swapatorium!

Oh, I can just feel the pounds melting off of me!! I can totally see why this was endorsed by Weight Watchers - it looks really healthy and low-fat.

Forget it. I have no words for this.

All I can do is stare in awestruck, silent wonder.

I've lost 79 pounds with weight watchers and I can honestly say I've never ever seen THAT in any of my WW recipe books or cards! Actually it's kind of cute and quirky. :)

Last night I was serving hot dogs for dinner and I was so tempted to build the crown roast of weiners but alas my picky son would not have eaten it. That boy just does not appreciate a gourmet weiner sculpture!

kwright said...

I love coming here to see what is being served up next, just when you think one is great....then comes another! This dish could pretty much be summed up as "The Weiner" of them all!!!!! I am soooooo cracking up over this!!

Shell said...

Oh.my.gawd! That has to be one of the most hideous things I have ever seen. Lol! Being vegetarian I am mortified and very very afraid. Hehe. Truly horrendous!

emdunbar said...
