Frank Dracula in His Coffin

Serving Size: 1

Ingredients

1 Feltman’s hot dog

1 hot dog bun

3-4 slices of cheddar or thinly sliced mozzarella cheese. 

Black olives

Red pepper

Yellow pepper

Red or white onion

Mayonnaise

 

Method

For the coffin:

  • Cut the top half of the hot dog bun horizontally a little less than halfway down, to resemble the open end of a casket. (Do not cut through the bottom half of the bun)
  • To create the illusion of a satin coffin liner, trim cheese to fit the width of the hot dog and lay on the bottom of the uncut half and along the inside of the top half you just cut. Use trimmed pieces to fill in any uncovered spots. Set open bun on a baking sheet and broil in oven or toaster oven until the cheese melts.

 

For the vampire:

  • Use your favorite method for heating Feltman’s Hot dogs:
    • Bake hot dog in a 350-degree oven for 8-10 minutes
    • Broil for 3 minutes
    • Sautee in a pan over medium heat with a splash of water for 5 minutes.  
    • Boiling is not recommended as it will leave the vampire’s face too smooth! (We’re going for a toasted, wrinkly look.)
  • Set heated hot dog aside. 
  • Slice off the hole-end of the olive, about ¼ of the way up. With a small paring knife, notch out a V-shape into the front of the olive to create a widow’s peak.  For each side, cut a small arc coming down about ¼ of the way around the olive from where you started, to form the hairline.  Reserve removed section. Slice a slit in the back and then fit the olive “wig” on top of the hot dog. This may take a few tries.
  • Lay the hot dog in the casket, leaving the top half open. Carve tiny eyes from the remaining pieces of olive, trimming off the back of the piece so the eye can lie flat.
  • Cut two thin equal slivers of the red pepper, then cut a third smaller sliver. Again, trim away the inside part (back) of the slivers so the pieces can lie flat. 
  • Slice one piece off the onion and create two tiny triangles that will be the fangs. Use red onion for a blood-stained effect.  
  • Carefully place olive pieces as eyes, the smallest red pepper sliver as mouth, and the onions as fangs. (Tweezers will make this easier.)  
  • Put a small amount of mayonnaise into a tiny bowl or plate. With a toothpick or the edge of a pointed knife, scoop up some mayonnaise and rub across the vampire’s ‘chest’ to create his shirt. 
  • From the curve of the yellow pepper cut a triangle, diamond, or circle shape
  • Place two red pepper slivers in a V shape on the mayonnaise as if they were the ribbons of a necklace and add the yellow pepper in between them where a medallion would be. (NOTE: the shirt and medallion can also be drawn on with ketchup and mustard!)
  • Close over the bottom half of the coffin so Frank Dracula can Rest in Peace.
