Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Happy 4th O’ July Hot Dog Platter & Ultimate Hot Dog Recipe


Nothing like dancing and lounging weiners roasting themselves upon which to plate the ultimate junk food junket of never-ending dogs and burgers this 4th of July. As long as the dachsund featured in the middle, this hefty 20″x16″ ceramic platter has five compartments to load up weinies and associated condiments. Made in 1958 by Lane & Co. California Pottery, I’ve been lucky enough to find three of these over the years. It’s the perfect platter to serve my favorite goopy hot dogs on, recipe below.



Now, here’s the ultimate junk food big dog recipe from the 1950 classic, the Big Boy Barbecue Book. Satisdogtion gua®anteed!

    Thats a fantastic dish. Alas I dont like hotdogs but I love the plate all the same

  • Shawn Robare says:

    Wow that recipe is decadent. The only thing it’s missing is EZ Cheese or a healthy slathering of Velvetta.

    I enjoyed your story and all pictures, we saw the weinermobile last year in College Station, Texas. I was so excited to have seen it. I grew up in California watching ‘The Brady Bunch’ so it wad good to see Susan was with you and you all went to visit the Brady House.
    I also have a hot dog people platter I inherited from my grandmother.
