We’ll see what weirdness I can pull out today. Closing my eyes, pulling a volume, and opening to random page.
Drum roll please …
I’m pretty sure this is not French nor do the French want to claim it.
Make 4 sandwiches of 4 frankfurters. (Hate to pop bubbles so early. but frankfurter ain’t French.)
You split the hot dogs length wise and width wise and add mustard. (So far so good.)
But Auntie couldn’t stop there. Oh no.
Mix an egg, milk, sugar, and salt. Dip sandwiches in mixture. Top with grated cheese and paprika and bake.
Okay maybe this one isn’t too bad. This great aunt was on a hot dog craze. Must have been a fad. On the same page is GLAMOUR DOGS which in addition to hot dogs, include corn chips, cheese, onion, Worcestershire, and tomato sauce. YUCK!!
This is officially the end of this post. I had a request for a couple of recipes I mentioned in a previous post. Those are listed below. They are part of my Auntie’s “Ladies Fare or Ladies Lunches”.
Frosted Party Sandwiches
Mix 6 oz. cream cheese with 2 Tsp. milk.
Cut 2 – 1/2 inch rounds from 12 slices of white bread.
On 1/3 of the rounds spread butter and salmon salad. These are the bottoms.
On 1/3 of the rounds spread egg salad. These are the middles.
Stack with a plain round on top of the other 2.
Frost the sides and tops of the sandwiches with the cheese mixture.
Decorate with shrimp, capers, olives, mint, parsley, etc. NOTE: Make several hours ahead.
As I remember she was quite creative with the decoration. She made a clock face from capers & slivers of olives, a champagne glass with bubbles, a martini glass, flowers, animals, and fruit.
Thaw 2 packages of frozen raspberries and stir. Place in a cup on a platter.
Whip 12 oz of cream cheese and 1/4 cup of milk until fluffy. Heap beside raspberry sauce.
Cut 2 honeydew melons into 1/2 inch slices, arrange on platter and refrigerate.
When served, guests put a little melon, little cheese, and a little sauce on plates.
Ta Da, Melon American.
They’re red, white and green. I don’t know why she called them American. Don’t ask. Learn from me, it’s easier that way.
