This surely isn't fancy but it certainly is a kid pleaser. My daddy made it for me when I was little. My kid's grew up eating it and now my granddughter often asks me to make it. You wouldn't want to serve it at a dinner party but for a cheap fast dinner that kid's will eat, it can't be beat.
- Cut wieners in half, giving you 16 pieces. With sharp paring knife, Make shallow cut spiraled around each piece. (barber pole type spiral).
- Mix water and barbecue sauce in sauce pan. Add wieners and stir. Add more water if too thick. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes, or until wieners have "puffed" up.
I made this for my son for lunch today. He loved it! Although, he wasn't too hot on them being cooked in the barbecue sauce so when we did up a couple more for him, we simply boiled them for a few minutes and then tossed them with some barbecue sauce. I love the technique though! They come out SO cute! Thanks for posting such a neat idea.
