Oven Barbecued Wieners

When I get in a big hurry-and it seems lately that’s where I stay-there’s a stand-by recipe that gets the job done and is delicious as well. Clara Parks Pinkston gave me a recipe for oven barbecue sauce years ago when I walked in her kitchen and the aroma was so tantalizing that I had to know what was cooking. She uses the sauce over beef patties or leftover meat or wieners. And we think it does the best job of dressing up wieners that can be done. Kids love it and so do adults.

Oven Barbecued Wieners

1 package wieners

1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire

1/4 cup vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar (more if you like)

1/2 cup catsup

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

Spread wieners in shallow casserole. Combine rest of ingredients and pour over wieners.

Cook 40 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees.

Same directions go for hamburger patties or leftover beef or lamb or pork.

P.S. Bessie: We’ll swap parsley for that good wine any day of the week! Thanks.
