A Food Fix For Friday...

...before we get cute.

Another one of The Best Ideas I Never Had...these are just plain hotdogs, but we do this with brats and most sausages. (Obviously it wouldn't work with sausages in casings, but everything else is fair game.) All you do is lightly score the dog in a circular pattern from one end to the other. Just to break the skin. It gives you much better texture...the inside cooks, as opposed to just heating up; the oozing fats crisp up nicely and the entire thing just...works. A trick we all learned from the late, great Johnny Hamm.


















THEN...the harvested garlic heads, for the Pickled Garlic Seeds. We'll see. That road to hell and such...

I, personally, would much rather find a Food Friday in my Google Reader than a (questionable) Friday Funny.

TYVM!

Yes, I agree with this trick. I love the crispness of the fully cooked weinnie skins--oh, what the hell, I really like them burnt--this gives a lot more edges to crisp.

We always do the top picture with our hot dogs, too.

P.S. My little sister had a dream last night. The only part that I really remember is "...and then mom died and turned into a frozen hot dog..." WTF??
