(btw, Sander’s opinion on ketchup is not mine!!!)
Wieners – or hot dogs, as they are known in the United States – are nice-tasting fully cooked sausages. You can do about ten thousand foods with them – use as a meat in salads, boil, fry with eggs, make sandwiches… sky is the limit!
But since childhood, my favorite way of making wieners is wiener piglets – incredibly easy to make, great-tasting and great-looking food. I think half of my relatives come to the parties held at my parents just to get cheese’n’mayo sandwiches and wiener piglets…
Wiener piglets are especially popular with kids – they look good (click on the picture to see larger version), have a funny name and taste great. And – kids can actually help to make them.
You take the sausage, cut a small cross in the end – about an inch deep – and put to hot oven (around 200..250 degrees Celsius). Depending on the type of sausages, they will take 10 to 20 minutes until ready – when the puffy ends start to get brown, they are done.
And that is it, all ready to eat. You can have them separately or as a side dish for salad/rice/potatoes. If you have crappy sausages or dead taste buds, you can use ketchup or mayo on them.

I have always liked cream corn — from a can, or from scratch. This recipe is a mix of both. It uses canned cream corn, but makes nice addition to it.
I’ve made this the day before Thanksgiving, and kept it refrigerated, until about 1 hour before I want to put it into the oven. Allow it to come to room temp before you bake it.
Simple Baked Cream Corn
2 tablespoons milk
2 cans of creamed corn (14.75 ounce cans)
2 tablespoons butter, chopped in pieces
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs with the milk. Mix in corn and butter. Blend in remaining ingredients.
Lightly spray a baking dish — I use an 8×8 dish, or a pie pan. Transfer the corn mixture to the baking dish, and bake in a 350F preheated oven for about 50 minutes, or until it is bubbly and golden brown.
Let this sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
