Recipe of the Day: Wiener Water Soup

Boiling wieners

That’s right, Wiener Water Soup. Here’s the recipe, in its glorious entirety:

  • 1 pkg. wieners
  • 3 c. water

Combine wieners and water in a two quart saucepan. Bring to a boil until wieners are cooked. Throw the wieners in the garbage. Serve soup. Serves 3.

Jason Kottke summed it up nicely: “ lets anyone submit recipes.” He found it via Serious Eats, who in turn found it via Dancing at Gunpoint and Copyranter.

I think the recipe meets Gordon Ramsay’s criteria for good food, being both simple and rustic.

(This recipe reminds me of Limp Bizkit’s third album, whose title suggested that they knew their fans very, very well: Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.)

This recipe in no joke. During a lunch break at the facory I was about to dump out my hot dog water and some guy freaked on me and asked why I would throw out perfectly good weiner water soup. I asked him if he wanted to eat it and he did.

My daughter didn’t believe me that Wiener Water Soup was real – when she asked about it again, at a later date, she referred to it as “Wet Wiener Soup” — way worse. These millennials???????? Gotta luv ’em.
