Over the past few months, we’ve seen Disney princesses recreated as a whole lot of things. Strange things. Unexpected things.
Ariel, Jasmine, Belle and all your favorites have been re-envisioned with short hair, with body hair, as plus-sized women, as horror-movie monsters, as mermaids, and, yes, even as each other. The 2016 presidential candidates have even gotten in on the fun now.
And now, with summer long gone in the rear view mirror and our yearning for cookouts and cargo shorts still so present, we have Disney princesses recreated as hot dogs. Because the world needs it.
Anna Hezel and Gabriella Paiella came up with recipes for Rapunzel, Ariel, Belle and Pocahontas over at Lucky Peach, and not only are they deliciously self-aware of the silliness, but they’re totally expertly arranged and photographed, too.
Rapunzel’s recipe, by the way, simply calls to prepare a hot dog in the normal way and then, you know, add “Onions!!!!!!!!!!” Lots of them. It might seem kind of ridiculous, but the level of detail that goes into making the faces, the hair and choosing which condiments are right for which dog is astonishing.
For the first time in this Disney recreating game, there’s no Photoshop skills required. Just a handful of household items and an appetite. Count me in when the Disney black-bean burgers make their way to the web.
With that in mind, we put our heads together and thought about what kinds of Disney princesses would inspire us the most. And obviously we thought of hot dogs. Disney has never created a princess who was a hot dog . Imagine if all of their princesses were hot dogs. So inspiring. Wow.
So here you go: Rapunzel, Ariel, Belle, and Pocahontas—as hot dogs.
+ hot dogs
+ hot dog buns
+ American cheese (the processed stuff)
+ mustard, ketchup, Sriracha, barbecue sauce
+ really, whatever you have around
1. Boil your hot dogs. Or don’t. Were you really planning on eating these?
2. Nestle each hot dog inside of a bun. This will keep them secure while you do unspeakable things to them.
3. Start crafting each princess’s attire.
For Ariel: Slice two small circles from the outer rings of a red onion. Secure them to her hot-dog bosom with mustard. Then, slice a romaine lettuce leaf in half horizontally and discard the non-leafy end. Slice the leaf in half to mimic a tail. Put it on the hot dog, too.
For Belle: Cut her dress out of American cheese, using multiple slices to mimic the volume of the fabric. Use yellow mustard for additional detailing.
For Pocahontas: Cut a short, one-shouldered dress out of American cheese, then use a knife to delicately create fringe detailing. Use mustard to belt it and cut out a small string of onion skin for a necklace.
For Onion-Dress Princess/Rapunzel: Onions!!!!!!!!!!
4. Next, give them faces and hair.
For Ariel: Sriracha hair, ketchup lips, barbecue-sauce eyes.
For Belle: Barbecue-sauce hair, ketchup lips, barbecue-sauce eyes.
For Pocahontas: Barbecue-sauce hair, ketchup lips, barbecue-sauce eyes.
For Onion-Dress Princess: Corn!!!!!!!!!!
5. Gaze upon your creations, then feed them to your dog while belting out “Colors of the Wind.”
