Severed Toes in Bandages

Yield: 36

Ingredients:

  • 1 box refrigerated piecrust
  • 1 package of 36 beef cocktail franks
  • 36 almond slices
  • 1 large egg
  • Ketchup

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a work surface, unroll a piecrust and, using a pizza wheel, cut crust into 3⁄8-inch-wide strips to make 36 strips.
  3. Working with one frank at a time, wrap each cocktail frank (like a bandage) with a dough strip to cover about one-half to two-thirds of the frank. Repeat with remaining franks.
  4. Arrange on a prepared baking sheet.
  5. Using a small paring knife, make a horizontal slit on the unwrapped end of each frank, and insert an almond slice into the slit to resemble a toenail. Brush dough bandages with egg wash.
  6. Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes, or until pastry is light golden brown. Serve hot with ketchup.
