Slit franks lengthwise and fill with chopped onion and/or sliced olives, cheese, chili, mustard, relishes, sliced green pepper or pimiento. Use your imagination! Then wrap each frank in Heavy Duty Reynolds Wrap, double-folding the edges. (You can do all this in advance … your “packages” keep tight and leak-proof in flexible strength Reynolds Wrap, ready for picnic trip or home cook-out.)
Grill 10 minutes over hot fire. Eat right from the foil or slide onto frankfurter bun. You’ll find the flavors deliciously blended … the franks juicier, zestier clear through.

Fancy frank fry
Dad wants cheese strips — Johnny votes for sweet pickle relish — the whole family has fun choosing favorite lings for these Fancy Franks. The combination flavors is really delicious!
That’s because Hunt’s Tomato Sauce blends em together so nicely. Mingles with the meat juicces and the different filling flavors ~ to make spicy tomato gravy that turns frankfurters into 1 exciting new dish! Rich tomato, red-ripe tomato, tomato through and through — that’s Hunt’s Tomato Sauce. Try its kettle-simmered goodness in your own meatloaf, hamburgers, stew, casseroles, soup and leftovers.
1 pound frankfurters (10 to 12)
Assorted fillings: Strips of cheese or dill pickle, sweet pickle relish, finely chopped onion, crushed pineapple
1/2 pound bacon (10 to 12 strips)
2 8-oz. cans Hunt’s Tomato Sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
Slit the franks lengthwise, but don’t cut completely through. Fill with fillings. Wrap a strip of bacon lightly around each frank, covering slit well. Pin bacon ends to frank with short pieces of toothpick.
Place in cold skillet. Fry over medium heat, turning often, until bacon is crisp and lightly browned. Pour off excess fat. Add Hunt’s Tomato Sauce, sugar and mustard. Blend well. Simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
