necessity being the mother of invention, i used what i had. leftover from my lobster rolls of two weeks ago were four frozen but perfectly good hot dog buns. a great excuse to bust out the frozen ground beefalo and hopefully make two kids happy two nights in a row.
i had eye spied this recipe early last month from ‘the clumsy cook‘ and never got to it – but today was the day. i did add the bit of sugar that ms. clumsy left out of the original ‘saveur’ recipe but cut back on the ketchup by about 1/4 cup as i ran out. it’s hard to wreck this one with slight changes. it’s that sweet beefy mass of meat atop a grilled and buttered bun with a slice of thick slab bacon on top. i mean, really…
so all that rounded out with some roasted okra, a bit of stokes mayo for dipping – and a nice dill pickle.
kid food can rock – but it’ll kill ya.
