"This is an unusual kind of gravy with sliced wieners that is served over mashed potatoes. The first time I had this was at my sister-in-laws over twenty years ago. I've changed the ingredients just a bit, but since then it's been among our family's favorite. Now our daughter Jenny prepares it for her family." — Domestic Goddess

5 3/4 cups

salt and pepper to taste
gingersnap cookies, crushed
1 1/2 cups
distilled white vinegar
I wanted to edit my recipe, but since I am not able to do so under my previous name, I found I am able to under my new name. When making this dish, I highly suggest using the following gingersnaps... Rippin Good or the Stauffer's brand. The Rippin Good Ginger Snaps can be found at Festival Foods, it comes in a 16-oz. box, and the Stauffer's Ginger Snaps can be found at Walgreens Drug Store, it comes in a 14 oz. bag. Recently I made this dish, but used another brand of store bought gingersnaps, and the gravy just didn't taste the same as it should. Also, years past I could make this using one of those brand name franks, but found those franks add more fillers to them, even though they say they don't, so now I find it's best to use a good quality brand of all-beef wieners. I now prepare this dish in my chicken fryer, and cook this over a high heat, until it comes to a boil and the gravy has thickened up, (in about 10 minutes) and after that, I lower the heat to a simmer, and cook/simmer the dish just a bit longer for another 10-15 minutes. One more thing I wanted to add... for this recipe you can use a small to a medium size onion; desired amount is up to you.
We did not like this. Sorry.
This is great! I've also used the gravy on fresh pasta! It gets rave reviews from my gourmet friends! *****
