Picture for Twinkie Weiner Sandwich inspired by Weird Al's UHF

3,774,279 views  UHF, Weird Al's fledgeling foray into film, is nothing short of a direct transcript of his delightfully odd imagination put to celluloid. In a dish that embodies the spirit of the movie itself, a hot dog is tucked delicately into a Twinkie and judiciously sprayed with cheese - and you know what? It's not that bad. Also, fun fact, Running with Scissors was the first CD I ever bought with my own money.

4.

For the Gourmet Twinkie Weiner Sandwich

1.

Into a large mixing bowl goes all-purpose flour, baking powder, kosher salt, finely grated parmesan cheese, and coarse ground corn meal.

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp kosher salt

2 oz parmesan cheese, grated

¼ cup coarse ground corn meal

2.

Toss together by hand, making sure everything is distributed evenly and there are no cheese clumps.

3.

In a large stand mixing bowl, add the whites of large eggs. Put the yolks are into a small separate bowl.

3 large eggs

4.

Beat the egg whites using a stand mixer with a wire whisk on high speed. As it becomes puffy and white, slowly add in granulated sugar. Once the egg whites have developed stiff peaks, set to the side.

2 tsp granulated sugar

5.

In the dry ingredients bowl, add in the egg yolks along with melted butter mixed together with whole milk. Whisk together thoroughly until very smooth before adding the egg whites and gently folding into the batter. Do not over mix the egg whites, or they will deflate.

3 large eggs

6 tbsp butter, melted

1 cup whole milk

6.

Pour batter directly into the twinkie molds all the way up to the brim and smooth out the top.

7.

Place the twinkie batter into a preheated 350°F oven for 30-45 minutes until deeply brown. When you insert a toothpick in the center, it should emerge clean. Place on a wire rack to cool completely.

8.

Once the twinkie has cooled, place 4-5 small holes/nozzles into the center of the twinkie before inserting the cream cheese filling via a piping bag.
