OK, we all agree that certain FFR's and "other" chains "ain't" really worth eatin' at, perhaps except one time. However, certain things at certain establishments, yes, even FFR's, have stood the test of time. Therefore I challenge all to send any of their favorite recipes for the same type of "stuff". What follows is somthin' simple to git yore minds 'a thinkin'.

Hardee's Buttermilk Biscuits


4 cups self-rising flour
1 tbs. sugar
1 tbs. baking powder
2 cups buttermilk
2/3 c. shortening

Mix together, but do not knead. Roll out to 1" thick.

Cut and brush tops with additional buttermilk.

Place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

    Here's a cool clone for the tangy orange/red onion sauce slathered over hot dogs ordered from Sabrett push carts. For a buck or two you can grab a hot dog with the works on the fly from these popular umbrella-covered food carts in many major cities. You find hundreds of 'em in New York City, especially around Central Park (that's where the sample for this re-creation was obtained). While most of the Sabrett toppings are standard hot dog fare - ketchup, mustard, sauerkraut - the onion sauce is a real Top Secret Recipe.
    1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 medium onion, sliced thin and chopped
    4 cups water
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    2 teaspoons corn syrup
    1 teaspoon cornstarch
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    1/4 cup vinegar

    1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
    2. Sauté sliced onion in the oil for 5 minutes, until onions are soft but not brown.
    3. Add water, tomato paste, corn syrup, cornstarch, salt, and red pepper flakes, and stir.
    4. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes. Add vinegar. Continue to simmer for an additiona1 30 to 45 minutes or until most of the liquid has reduced and the sauce is thick.
    Makes about 1 cup.

      MMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmm Sabretts.... Yum... I'm so glad you can get them at Sam's Club now. My grandparents used to fly up to NY with an empty cooler just to bring home 10 or 15 pounds of hot dogs. Now I'm hungry

        ADJ: don't they brush them with butter after they bake?

          Add ingredients to a small mixing bowl. Mix well.Use on Chicken, Apple & Cranberry Garden Fresh Salad, etc.
