I know this is the time of year when most dogs are prepared on the grill, but I had to share this nifty technique for roasting franks in the oven. By splitting the center they cook evenly with a crisp exterior and moist center. Next time I’m going to put some cheese in them before baking.
This sauce reminds me of one that my mother used to prepare to put on hot dogs. It’s simply spiced and very easy to make. It gives the hot dogs a totally different taste experience from using the typical ball park condiments.

How can one not love a song that starts out with these lyrics?
“When the zombies came
they went straight for our brains.
But we were the ones
who ate each other alive.”
