Female 1: To me, if you want to have a deep fried meal all rolled to a very unlikely package, you are going to need a deep-fried hotdog with bacon.
I’m talking about the deep-fried hotdog with rollings in fair-full Connecticut. Not anything special, just your perfect garden-variety hotdog transformed into something magnificent because it’s fried.
This hotdog, it’s actually fried dynamic duo. It’s a fried hotdog with fried bacon. It’s the di-factor of fried food. Let me see what we are going to have today. You know, I see the menu. It’s really in this formality. I am going to have the works.
I know, it’s just a hotdog but it isn’t. This is more- this is way more. This can change your whole life— this hotdog. And then, I take the first bite. I can feel it break and then catching the tang of the relish and that earthy and almost grassy taste of the sauerkraut. You didn’t realize what you do something with your head when you eat hotdog like a shark attack on a feeding frenzy.
And then those little bits of bacon, they mingle all around like little flavor measles. They are just hanging out like “Pow!”
Male 1: We use Hammer Brother’s hotdog— that’s a beef and pork mixture and it’s in a natural casing.
Female 1: They fry the frankfurter just enough to get that wonderful crunch on the outside.
Male 1: When they are done, they start floating to the top.
Female 1: And then they pop it on the grill a little bit just to finish it off.
Male 1: The grill gives it that extra snap. It rolls the grease off of it.
Female 1: It gives it's slightly that sort of slightly charm or respectability that a hotdog deserves. Now here’s the thing that I love about rollings – not only as is this a mecca of fried food hidden under the guys who lives in the hotdog stand. He’s also very warm and friendly.
Female 2: Hi welcome to Rollings!
Female 1: And it’s next to a hardware store. Now, I have been known to say, “I need a new set of screwdrivers. I need a new wrench. I need a new set of hammers.” And of course, I don’t need those things. What I need is a deep fried hotdog and I just don’t know how to say it.
Sooner or rather than wait, we wind up at the last. I mean, it’s just the perfect hotdog.
