A Summer Recipe

This post is linking up with Fringe Girl from the Domestic Fringe.  She is getting in touch with her inner Martha, and is hosting a summer recipe carnival. After reading up and taking notes on my delicious recipe, (and leaving a comment, of course) click on the link and head over to her site for some more great recipes. And remember, if the recipes don't turn out right, it's probably your fault and not ours.

So here's my recipe:

Start with Oscar Mayer beef franks. (Brand is important to this recipe.)

Unwrap package and place franks on the grill. (I would say hot dogs, but I'm trying to have a little class here.)

Turn franks to desired shade of brown. (Or black, if that's your preference.)

Place the hot franks in buns and decorate with relish, ketchup and mustard. It's important to put the relish on first, and you can use sweet relish or dill. Next comes the ketchup and then a thin line of mustard. (It's a thin line because I personally don't care for mustard. But the frank doesn't look right without it.) Top with chopped onions if you desire.

Serve on a paper plate (saves washing dishes) with chips and baked beans. Bush's has great baked beans. You can throw in a little brown sugar and molasses so that you can claim them as your own.

Wash down with your favorite tea or soft drink. Again, plastic cups are preferred.


You weren't seriously expecting a recipe from me, were you?

Okay. If Fringe Girl does this carnival again, I'll give you an honest to goodness recipe. But it will have to be for dessert. In the meantime, I'm going to go read the instructions on the back of the brownie mix again.

Here's to summer!


  1. You are SO funny! I do love a blackened frank or dog or whatever. I'm good at blackened. ;-)


  2. I love your "recipe", we make them all the time here, great summer food, a real crowd pleaser.

  3. This is my favorite recipe!! On brand Franks are our favorite around here.....:)

    Gotta love on brand Franks...and beans. I must admit that we skip the condiments.

    You made me laugh out loud. My family thinks I am weird.

  4. Actually it sounds really good. I haven't had a 'frank' in ages : )

  5. Giggles you are too funny, but you know I love my BBQ franks blackened too, so not too off girl, I am new to your blog, but thanks for the smile will run over to Domestic fringe too and see what she has, I post lots of good recipes on my blog too, you may want to stop by and visit me too one day, the door is always open to new friends,

    But I think you may have forgotten ONE important ingredient...MARSHMELLOS! They are the BEST "blackened" food ever.

  7. giggle....I soooooo miss a good hot dog!

    Your description/recipe made my mouth water!

  8. Hi Jill-
    My names is Janera Jepson and I host the new Wednesday meme Wednesday Wickedness ( Don't let the tame throw you. We are a family oriented meme that's similar to Linda's Random Dozen. We base our questions each week on quotes from someone famous. This week is Frank Sinatra. Since Linda is taking time off I thought I'd invite you to play during the hiatus. We always post on Tuesdays (we're up now!) so players can either day. We hope that you will join us!


  9. I think I could manage this one! Ha!

  10. Sounds like my kinda cookin' and my kinda eatin' too!!!

  11. You know it! that´s the best kind a recipe! LOL WE use what they call here Salchichas. but they are just good ol´ hotdogs. Just sounds better to call them that.

    I miss grilling whenever we want but boy do I look forward to getting to my parents house to do some real grilling.

    have a great start to your summer!
