Recipes inspired by North American notions of Hawaiian or Polynesian food were a staple of 1950s cooking tips, so it's not shocking to see the humble hot dog paired off with bacon and pineapple for a taste of the south seas. Note the other fruit pairings—at first, I was revolted by the notion of peaches and hot dogs, but then remembered I've eaten sausages with fruit-enriched barbecue sauce or marinades, so perhaps the idea isn't so far-fetched...
OK, maybe it is. Large chunks of peaches and bologna-like meat. Mmmm.
Our final culinary creation is something I'm surprised a fast food chain or frozen food manufacturer never investigated the sales possibilities of. People like hot dogs. People like overstuffed or flavoured mashed potatoes. Why not combine them? Ta-da—tater dogs!
