I think that we can all agree that Tom puts up with a lot for this blog. Just this year alone he’s had to eat a lot of horrible gelatin, a liver pate where the secret ingredient was canned green beans and a sub with canned spaghetti on it. Plus, he’s had to put up with me all year. To say that he has earned a “treat” would be an understatement.

So, this week we are going slightly out of our normal time period and flashing forward to 1989 and the Weird Al movie UHF so that we can make a dream of Tom’s come true.

This is the UHF Twinkie Wiener Sandwich:

And here is our version:

As you can see, the Twinkie Wiener Sandwich consists of a Twinkie cut down the middle and then stuffed with a hot dog. Then the hot dog is covered with squeezy cheese. Crazy? Yep, pretty much.

In a side note, these always bring to mind those bizarre Krispy Kreme burgers, do you remember those? I think they still serve them at State Fairs.

Anyway, Tom has always wanted to make a Twinkie Wiener Sandwich, and with the recent and very public demise of Twinkies there was no better time to do it than right now.  So, when our Twinkie hoard started getting low, we decided that New Year’s Eve was the perfect time for Tom to make his disgusting treat.

There is no real recipe for this one, just a clip from the movie UHF. As a bonus, check out their vintage sink and appliances in their kitchen!

Yep, we’ve even got the mug of milk for dipping!

Tom’s moment of glory: Adding the cheese.

Or maybe this was the moment of glory? Dipping the sandwich in milk.

Either way, I think we all knew it would end this way:

Ew.

The Verdict: Not good, but not horrible

From The Tasting Notes:

It tasted like a painfully sweet hot dog. A bit of corn dog flavor to it. The milk just made the Twinkie really soggy. Not as horrible as I imagined it would be, but not good either. You couldn’t really taste the squeezy cheese.

Hope everyone had a great New Year’s that was NOT filled with Twinkies and cheese!
