Farmer's Daughter

Although 20+ years removed from the farm, farmer's daughter is still a title I enjoy.
Growing up on a farm taught me many invaluable lessons, two of those being frugality and creativity.
Now as a wife and a mom, I love to put into practice what I learned growing up as a
Farmer's Daughter.

Frank-Bacon Bats

This is another recipe from the cookbook my mom made. With a big football weekend coming up, this recipe might come in handy.

Football, hot dogs, bacon, a full case of Pepsi Throwback . . . sounds like a game plan.

16 frankfurters (or hot dogs if you're a Hoosier)
1 1/2 c. pickle relish
1 Tbsp. mustard
16 slices of bacon
16 hot dog buns

Make lengthwise slits in hot dogs. Mix relish and mustard. Spoon into slits in hot dogs. Wrap each with bacon slice and fasten with toothpick. Place on baking sheet.

Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Comment from Mother: We used to make these hot dogs when we lived at the little house on St. Rd. 44. Diane and Elaine were in grade school when we fixed these.

I have made these a couple times and they are TASTY!

Love Me

I've been hoarding Pepsi Throwback. I don't want to live in a world without Pepsi Throwback. It KILLS me to find a half-full can sitting, wasting on the counter that one of the boys has left behind. Shame.

These hotdogs sound REALLY good. I've never thought about wrapping a hotdog in bacon, before...except mini ones as appetizers.

The bacon makes it health-food, right? ;)
