I'm not sure what makes this recipe barvarian. But, it's very tasty. I used to make this recipe in school and everytime I made this recipe my chef would sneak the leftovers home. One day my head chef told me that my chef loved how i made this. But, he didn;t want to tell me becuase it would give me a "Big Head". Hehe it did.

This was quite good, the only changes I made was to use bratwurst instead of hot dogs and added some garlic (just because I love garlic so much) Thank you for posting.
