I have a file labeled “Simply Stupid Recipes.” This will go right in the front.
This impressive meal is easily assembled from a pound of frankfurters (cook ’em first):2
tablespoons cider vinegar, one teaspoon poppy seeds, 2 cups shredded cabbage, ½ cup boiling water, and an unspecified amount of pimento, along with some parsley for garnish and several toothpicks to hold the whole mess together.
The recipe comes from a 1974-vintage collection of Weight Watchers recipe cards. (Shame on you Mrs. Weight Watcher.) But then, the 70s offered us a plethora of forgettables. Remember, this is the decade that gave us Watergate, platform shoes, and double-knit polyester leisure suits… so this Fine Dish fits right in.
