    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    In these politically correct times, this recipe should, I suppose, come with a warning to the mothers of little boys: that it may cause offence. In Australia, cocktail frankfurts have - from time immemorial - been called "little boys". In this simple, super-quick recipe, the little boys are wrapped in bacon, and then microwaved. Then do with them what you will! Use them as the basic ingredient in an upmarket hot-dog, with whatever additional ingredients - salads, cheeses, salsas, sauces - take your fancy, or serve them unadorned as coctail frankfurts - as an appetiser. This version of this rather old-fashioned recipe - popular in the seventies and eighties - is made in the microwave. For the best results, use skinless frankfurts. For Australians, use Don's skinless frankfurts. To the best of my knowledge, there is no equivalent recipe for Bacon-Wrapped Little Girls! This recipe has been adapted from one in Australian chef Margaret Fulton's book 'Microwave Cooking'.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bacon-w ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 dozen cocktail franks
    • 12 slices middle rasher bacon, rind removed and all (or most)
    • parsley sprig (to garnish)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wrap 1/2 rasher of the bacon around each frankurt, and secure it with a toothpick.
    2. 2
      Place the bacon-wrapped little boys in the microwave, cover with a paper towel and cook for 3-4 minutes, or for the appropriate time, depending on the heat level of your microwave. As always with microwaved food, cook a little at a time, and move the little boys around in the course of the cooking from the outer to middle areas etc.
    3. 3
      Remove the toothpicks, garnish the bacon-wrapped little boys with sprigs of parsley and serve them in hot-dog rolls, as appetisers or with a potato salad.

      These little snackies came together really quickly. I broiled them for a couple of minutes to get the bacon crisped up a little bit more. We enjoyed these while watching football today, they are the perfect munchie for sports!

      So easy to make,even easier to eat.I think these are great.Perfect for a snack or light lunch.I would have prefered the bacon to crisp up a bit,mine looked a bit insipid.They still disappeared quickly,regardless of the fact they were a bit pale. Very yummy-thanks.

      Really tasty. DH & I nibbled heartily on these & some other things we tried as part of a ZWT appy nite. These “little boys” have been around a long time in 1 form or another, but it was sure fun to revisit them again. Thx for posting.
