Ice Box Hot Dog Pie – Why Just Why? [Video]
My Facebook friend Beth sent me this video with no context included. She knows I love to cook and I figured she was simply remembering our time together growing up. When we were younger we ate a lot of hot dogs. Of course, the reason we ate hot dogs was that we were poor and the hot dog was the closest thing to meat we could afford.
I have to admit I was intrigued. I do like hot dogs and I do like pie. What could possibly be wrong with combining the two?
You're basically combining every incredible element of a typical hot dog. There's the bun that makes up the crust, the condiments that add the flavor, and of course the hot dog that puts the slurry of processed parts into a delightful pie-like consistency. Well, I guess the gelatin helps in that endeavor as well.
Confession time, I almost vomited watching this video. I don't know why but the concept of cold hot dog pie is about as appealing as eating hair with toenails. I can't stomach this. I believe this was supposed to be an April Fool's prank but it's taken on a life of its own. Hopefully, this life will have a shorter lifespan than the projected lifespan of these ingredients.
