Oscar night at home = buffet of dancing hot dogs, soda, popcorn and ice cream bars?
It’s the ultimate homage to the motion picture show tradition. Although, we’ve never partaken in a Paramount Theatre’s snack bar weenie, we’re partial to that cartoon frankfurter and bun — cue the Wurlitzer.
Surely a selection of premium sausages with dreamy gourmet toppings and oozing cheese is the perfect Oscar movie night snack for two or a crowd.
Even Wolfgang Puck has an Oscar party worthy take on dogs. He calls them wiener wurstchen: splits all beef hot dogs, fills them with gruyere and wraps them in bacon. after baking at 425F until crisp (about 15 minutes) he tops them with a dreamy horseradish cream.
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup drained prepared horseradish
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon minced shallots
- 1 tablespoon minced chives

Some hilarious homemade coasters featuring dancing cartoon concession snacks would be the crowning glory for any Oscar night.
