Weird Al Yankovic’s Cheesy Twinkie Wiener

On a recent episode of Hot Ones Weird Al Yankovic explained the origins of the Twinkie Wiener Sandwich. The inspiration for this delicacy was inspired by his 1989 movie “UHF”. There’s not much to explain as far as the recipe goes. Got a Twinkie? Got a traditional hot dog or tofu dog? Then your’re golden! Wait a minute…..the cheese matters. Check out the interview below to hear how Weird Al makes the perfect Twinkie Wiener Sandwich and which variety of cheese pulls it all together. The full interview is 23 minutes long but don’t worry I skipped this video forward to the good stuff, the wiener talk!

This guy seems to like the Twinkie Hotdog sandwich!
