I need some advice. this vintage recipe has been making the rounds on my newsfeed in the last few days. perhaps yours too. it seriously is making my mouth water and i want to make it for a potluck later this month. my question is regarding serving. since the hotdogs are stitched together with thread and because they form the container for the stuff you put inside (there are alternate recipes for the stuffing out there that sound more delectable and complex than simply sauerkraut), how do the guests get to enjoy the franks too without destroying the entire thing? any advice? or was this a creation that was never really meant to be eaten, only observed for it's beauty?
I recently had the same problem for a potluck last month, thinking about bringing a similar dish! I thought sauerkraut is so very blase and predictable. It would almost be embarrassing to serve to that to the guests in such an elegant Crown of Frankfurters.
While obviously it is just made for beauty, for if a gauche guest were to take one the frankfurters the entire dish would fall apart, the filling is most important.
After long and extensive research, I came up with a solution for a filling to please everyone: Gluten-free, Organic, Free-range Artichoke Spinach dip!
This way I was able to please all the guests, vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters all at once. It was a brilliant solution and a smashing success! Recipe link below:
I hope your dish goes over as well as mine did.
