Omaha Steak: Worst Hot Dogs Ever

These were from an aunt who got a box of food for the holidays and knew she wouldn't eat them.

Labeled "gourmet franks" and in a 12 ounce box. Inside were 4 very round hot dogs.

I oven cooked them on a rack on a tray, like I do most sausages when no fire is lit.

They were saltier tasting than their under 800 mg sodium indicated. They were fatty tasting and had no texture. They were like bad bologna in a round shape. The animals got them.

Shudder. And to think I thought their products might be really special. I'll stick to Hebrew National, Nathan's, Boar's Head and the like.
