Franksgiving Dinner (Fancy Nathan’s, Take Two) by Erik of Fancy Fast Food (using some of his techniques as featured in the November 2009 Wired article by Erica Westly)
Ingredients:
1 Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog (with chili)
1 Corn Dog on a Stick
1 order of Crinkle-Cut French Fries
1 small fruit punch
organic chives (for garnish and a touch of irony)
This Thanksgiving, we could have easily gone to Boston Market for a quick, traditional American Thanksgiving meal, but where’s the fun in that?To get started, use a kitchen torch to sear one side of your corn dog so that it has a few burn marks — not too much, just enough to give the exterior an appearance of being roasted.  Then flip the corn dog over and cut an incision so that you can extract about two-thirds of the interior hot dog.  With that solid mass removed, you can easily mold the remaining cornbread batter into a shape that resembles that of a turkey leg.Next, remove the hot dog from its bun, leaving the chili.  Scoop the chili into a skillet, and then chop the remaining bun into small pieces.  Mix the bun pieces in with the chili — crushing the beans in the process — until it’s blended and looks like stuffing.  To make the mashed potatoes, simply stick some fries in a food processor and blend.  (Nathan’s fries are inherently moist, so there’s no need to add water.)To make some faux cranberry sauce, bring the fruit punch to a boil in a non-stick pan until it’s reduced down to a thick red syrup.  Toss in some bread pieces to soak up the syrup and make a chunky paste of fruity flavor.  Finally, the plating: place your “turkey leg” and all the sides on a welcoming round plate; garnish the potatoes with organic chives for that extra touch of irony.  Now give thanks, and have a Happy Franksgiving!
