Canape, snack or treat on a cold day - snacky franks!


Not all of us can be saints all the time and these are something I spoilt my family with for a snacky lunch last weekend -  they were warm and tasty and great for a blistery cold winter's day.  I had something like this at a BBQ years ago - but they were actually fried not baked on the BBQ - so you could do that too -  I think these would be perfect for a warm canape for an afternoon in front of the footy.  Easy peasy to prepare too!


Ingredients:
500g cocktail frankfurts (If you or your children are susceptible to food colourings, remove the skins or buy skin-less franks)
3 rashers bacon
sweet mustard (I used swedish mustard - you can buy this one at Ikea - but wholegrain honey mustard is delicious also)


Method:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees c

Slice bacon in 1/3rds lengthwise and in 1/2 again so you have 6 long thin strands of bacon per rind.   It doesn't matter if they break...

Cut a slit in the frankfurts half and smear some mustard in the centre.

Wrap in a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Place in a baking dish and spray with some canola oil before placing in the oven for 15 minutes or so.

Serve! They don't need sauce or anything - they are a bit crunchy and a bit sweet and might tasty!



What's your go-to snack on a cold day?  Hot chips with vinegar is one of my faves too!

Oh yum, late dinner for hubs and I tonight, these are in the oven as i type! Already know how good they are going to be sampled a little boy with seeded mustard... yep have to have them like that all the time now :)
Thinking i might have to buy a heap of the ingredients and make up a large batch to do on the BBQ this weekend while we are away camping with some great friends (who i think i've also turned into Frills fans lol)

@Liss
Friends take a little BBQ away so we made them all up, popped them into a tin foil tray and let them cook away for a while! Kids loved them, adults loved them and while the bacon on the bottom was a little more cooked than at home they were just as delicious and will no doubt become a regular addition to our camping trips!
THANK YOU
(Oh tonight starts our Frills week, everything i make this week will be from your blog! Can't wait there are so many delicious recipes i think we could do this for a month!)
