A Crock of Entrails Recipe

A Crock of Entrails Recipe
Sometimes when we are planning a Halloween BOO-ffet, it's fun to name the dishes something disgusting, even though the dish is actually not disgusting at all. Case in point: A Crock of Entrails. The dish actually consists of old fashioned frankfurters covered with a yummy sauce. After slow cooking, the frankfurters are butterflied (split down the middle) and placed on buns; they are sprinkled with cheese and broiled until bubbly. YUM!
The sauce is quick and easy to make; you may want to double it so guests can spoon extra over their sandwiches. Even though these frankfurters have a disgusting name, they aren’t scary looking, and they especially aren’t scary tasting. They are so quick and easy, you’ll actually want to make them all year round.
