Your wurst [ugh] dreams have come true - I'm about to share Better Homes & Garden's Barbecue Book (c)'65 recipe for Cheese-Frankfurter Loaf with you!
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1 loaf French bread [about 16-18 inches long *insert dirty joke here*]
10 frankfurters, cut in half crosswise
Cook onion in butter till tender but not brown. Add chili sauce and seasonings. Simmer about 10 minutes or till sauce is thick. Here's the idea for cutting the bread [gee, thanks!]: Slices will be 3/4 inch wide and cut crosswise of the loaf. Cut first slice, going almost to bottom crust; cut second slice all the way through [this is rocket science, people]. Continue in same manner the length of loaf. Between the attached slices, spread the sauce, sprinkle in half of cheese, and insert 2 frank halves, letting uncut ends [again, insert dirty joke here] poke out and up at a jaunty angle [jeez, I love phallic 60s humor]. Hide cut ends of franks with remaining cheese.
With long skewer, fasten sandwiches together in a loaf and wrap in aluminum foil. Heat on grill over charcoal till piping. Open the foil and sprinkle sandwiches with additional shredded cheese, if desired. Remove skewer. Serve hot. Makes 10 servings.
Now go find a brew to wash down frank & have a great weekend!
