How could we have missed this?

Oscar night at home = buffet of dancing hot dogs, soda, popcorn and ice cream bars?

UPDATE: the cutest mini dogs!

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.

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 this 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
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Some more inspiration from our fave hot dog joint: Tubby Dog.
The Starlet, Action Hero, Red Carpet, Golden Guy — they’re yours for the inventing.

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