Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 24 cocktail franks
  • 12 cup mustard
  • 12 cup mayonnaise
  • 24 sturdy toothpicks

  1. Melt the margarine in a small pan over low heat.
  2. Place the franks on a broiling pan and brush them with the melted butter.
  3. Broil the franks until they are evenly browned (turn 2 or 3 times).
  4. Combine the mustard and mayo in a small bowl and set aside-- this will be the ear wax.
  5. Stick each frank on a tooth pick.
  6. Wet the cotton balls slightly in order to compact them and stick one on the other end of the tooth pick-- this is your Q-tip.
  7. Place the small bowl of ear wax in the middle of a platter and arrange the franks on Q-tips around the bowl.
