Retro Recipes Tested Here!
I’m proud as HECK to say this was created the year I was born. Definitely a correlation of AWESOMENESS there somewhere. Hallelujah!
The ultimate corn -dog!
Oh my, how terrifying. Please make this.
Oh, man. I would so eat that.
Okay, I fell for this one. We just finished having a Frankfurter Loaf for supper. I’ve got some recipe notes, in case anyone else wants to give it a try.
The hot dogs float when you put them in the batter, then as they cook they sink toward the bottom of the pan. I’m not sure if a thicker cornbread batter would have helped to avoid the expanse of plain cornbread across the top of the loaf, but it might.
If you use a loaf pan such as the one recommended in the recipe, bake your loaf a little bit longer. Mine was “damp” in spots, mostly down by the hot dogs.
I’m thinking of trying it again, this time using a larger dish. You’d want to be sure to remember which way your hot dogs are arranged, so that when you slice the bread you’d get those nice cross sections. Perhaps you could mark one edge with a pimento bit.
I served it with a nice cold black-eyed pea salad, and barbecue sauce. My husband pronounced our supper “cool!” but shuddered in horror when I mentioned the mushroom gravy.
Sounds good, thanks for letting us know! I might have to try this!
Nice! Did you take a picture? Thank you so much for all of the notes.
I can… please let me know how to send it and I’ll be happy to do so.
I’ve also got a recipe book from 1967 that is full of um, goodies, and would be happy to share them with you. I bought it out of a sense of disbelief that anyone would think that canned tamale casserole was a good idea.
my grandmother would actually make this in “muffin” style. no weird dipping sauce,ust ketchup and mustard. love love love it!
My grandma used to make this without any sauce. It was yummy. I make mini versions of it still with my twinkie pan…
I wonder if flouring the hot dogs, as you would fruit, would keep them from rising or, sinking?
Maybe! It would be worth a try!
