I have written about Parkview brand before, the in-house mark for processed meats at the discount grocer Aldi. These hot dogs are produced at a plant in Albert Lea, Minnesota, which was previously owned by Minnesota old-timey brand Schweigert’s, who make the official hot dog of the Minnesota Twins ( nearly 600,000 sold at the park this season). Both the plant, and the current Schweigert’s brand are in the portfolio of Cargill these days.
The dogs come eight to a one pound pack, and the first two ingredients on the package are beef and water. That’s a good thing, with pan shrinkage virtually unnoticeable.
The sausage has a very fine grind, and an extremely mild flavor. At 8/pound, a hearty bun is recommended, perhaps an S. Rosen Poppyseed, or equivalent.
BTW, as pictured here? I put the slices in the weenies prior to cooking, just for effect.
