"A crown roast of wieners is an ideal solution for guest problems when the budget is low."
Serving hot dogs and sauerkraut is a reasonable choice when you have many mouths to feed and money is tight. But trying to make it look like a Crown Roast? That has a certain whiff of self-delusion. Really, do you think anyone will be fooled? You can use a string to sew through hotdogs and make them stand on their own, stuff the middle with sauerkraut and say you are serving a Crown Roast, but WHY? (Yes, that is the technique. "Using large needle and string sew through all the frankfurters 1/2" from the top, and again 1/2 " from the bottom" - tie the ends together, and voila!).
Hmmmm... are you sure those are frankfurters?
