This One's for the Boys

You may have noticed that I write a lot about my mom in this blog, because as you all know by now, she actually followed the Retro WW Plan back in 1972. But what you may not know is that my dad has been a "Weight Watcher by Association" for years.

As far back as I can remember, my mom and dad would often decide to "go on a diet together"...and Dad could always drop weight like a champ.

So, in honor of Father's Day--I am cooking up a very manly Retro WW Feast that I know dad will love:

The Frankfurter Pie

Line a pie pan with 4 slices of enriched white bread; cut in half and flatten with a rolling pin.

After that--pile on 4 cups sauerkraut, 1 chopped dill pickle, 1/4 cup chopped green pepper, 1/4 cup mustard and ONE POUND BROILED & SLICED FRANKFURTERS. (that's right, I said one pound) Then bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

It tastes just like a day at the ballpark! Makes 4 servings. But, what the heck--be a man! Eat the whole pie!

Have a Franktacular Father's Day!

It baffles the mind how that recipe could be considered WW in 1972!

I hope your Dad enjoyed this delicacy! ;)

Thanks for the comment on my blog!!

You know, if I left out the bell pepper, I think I would actually like that!

Sadly, I would eat that. I am actually a little surprised that there is no pimento in it. Maybe you could make it for mothers day next year with the pimento butterflies!

I think this minus the peppers wouldn't be bad!

I made this when no one was at the house to complain about the smell of baking sauerkraut and regret nothing.
