Here is the splendid food photo in The Treasury of Great Recipes that illustrates Vincent’s section on the frankfurter. He loves them. A lot. There are three recipes that feature frankfurters in the book and as I was wandering around Budgens in a hungover haze today I remembered that I had some frankfurters in the bottom of my fridge. I’d spotted them in my corner shop and with a mind to doing one of Vincent’s recipes bagged them. They are POLISH frankfurters:
I was a bit surprised to see that each individual frankfurter was encased in a branded plastic casing:
Seems like excessive packaging but whatever… I made two Stuffed Frankfurters – I guess I thought it would be good to have one to photograph and one to eat. And so it was. Here’s my attempt to take an artistic photo like Vincent’s…
It’s a bit of an EPIC FAI?L as it’s hard to get proper Frankfurter buns in the UK. And a Gladioli isn’t really an ear of barley or whatever it was in the Vincent pic… You’ll notice that my window is open. Here in London we are having an Indian Summer. It was beautiful today, and they are predicting it will be like this until October. Rah rah rah.
Here’s a picture showing what my cheese and onion stuffed Frankfurter wrapped in bacon actually looked like. Is this ALLOWED on the Gellert Diet? No, of course not. Was it delicious? Yes, of course!
I’m watching “Top Hat” and Ginger Rogers has just been told, “As long as you’re a spinster, you’re fair game for any philandering male” – ha ha! I suppose that’s true… And just because we are talking about frankfurters, I can’t resist putting this picture of Dr Frank-N-Furter in my post…
