New Field Roast Frankfurters - A Hit in Seattle's Major League Baseball Park.

This summer at Field Roast has been the "Summer of Franks"....as we have begun to make our brand new Frankfurter and start selling them around
the country. Our first food service customer has been the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. We were honored and pleased when they selected our new Frankfurter as their official vegetarian offering.

Our goal in making a Field Roast Frankfurter is to make a moist and "fatty" frank. Centerplate, the people who take care of the food at Safeco Field do a great job with preparing the frank. It's available on the main concourse right behind home plate and in the 300 level at section
We've been so delighted with Safeco Field and the Sea ttle Mariners that we decided to become a sponsor. Look for our advertisements along the third base line that tell fans where they can pick up one of our new dogs!

Recipe: Franks Island Skewer

So here it comes, faster than a speeding bullet...it's Labor Day weekend! I know that summer has been a quick hot one, and for some...too hot! I suppose that sitting in an air conditioned home doesn't lend itself to grilling outside, but there is always the stove top grill! Here in Seattle we are enjoying our summer, and though at the start of August we only had something like 78 hours of "summer weather", now my lawn is brown in places. "Beggars can't be choosers," mama always said.

Chef Stephen Holtz did this recipe in celebration of summer. It is incredible, simple and is cooked and served on a stick. Tasty and fun, not much more you can ask in regards to food.

3 Field Roast Franks
1/2 fresh cut pineapple
1 fresh cut Banana
Thai Sweet Chili Sauce to dip (optional)

Clip and peel the Franks, slice on the bias into bite sized chunks, as well as the pineapple and banana. Spear them alternately with the skewer and place on a hot grill. 3 minuntes each side or until the fruit is caramelized and Frankfurters have grill marks. Note that you will need to level these chunks on the skewer so that they hit the grill together. Serve it up to dip in the sweet chili sauce or drizzle it so it soaks in. Either way...this tour of Frankiocity just popped off its flip flops and shoved its feet in the sand.
