Info
When I was a kid we regularly drove down to Rhode Island to visit relatives. Two things that made these trips special were Del’s Frozen Lemonade and N.Y. System Hot Wieners. The wieners were a veal/pork blend and were a little smaller than a hot dog. While you watched a man would dress the dogs by running a dozen or so up his forearm. First he would slather on some yellow mustard with a flat stick. This was followed by a meat sauce that had similarities with a chili but is different. Next came onions followed by an application of celery salt to finish it off. There are all sorts of websites dedicated to this gastronomical work of art. The recipe I used came from allrecipes.com and the only change I made was to grill the hot dogs. Making these brought back wonderful childhood memories and was as good as I remembered. For the second time I made these, I made a trip to Rhode Island and bought wieners from the meat packer. I had to buy 10# and I was a bit surprised to see they were coiled up in one long piece similar to a garden hose. I cut them into 5 segments and put them into 5 FoodSaver bags. Using real RI style wieners were a definite improvement - a good thing since I now have 10# in my freezer.
