I ran the grill at a marina one summer and for some reason they ordered twice as many cases of hot dogs and a sausage called Bahama Mama’s than needed.! Could not unload these things! I mean we had a pretty nice menu and there wasn’t many kids at this place except weekends. One day I scored down the sides of a few five or so times and threw them in the fryer. I gave them to the wait and bar staff out front to eat in front of customers at the bar. Folks sure do want what they think they can’t have. As in "how come we don’t get those like Thaaaat"? People thought they looked cool all blown up in wedges and liked the way the skins had snap but were easy to bite into(the Bahama Mama’s have a pretty tough skin). It kind of took off and by Labor day we had to re-order. What a pain in my big ‘ol fat a*# but they did go out the door. Fried Mama’s and Dogs, just fry ’em 350-375 till they look delicous. No place I’ve been since has let me do this again. Deep fryer jack booted thugs…there everywhere I tell ya!
