Frankfurter Goulash a la Walter Slezak and Soaps

Frankfurter Goulash a la Walter Slezak and Soaps

I hear you ~ “Who in the world is Walter Slezak?”

Were you a fan of Victoria Lord’s on One Life to Live?  Not

that I ever watched it.  Way back,

when the boys were young, I was into General

Hospital (the days of Luke and Laura) and Days of our Lives ~ like the sands through the hourglass, so are

the days of our lives...

Days of Our Lives cast-1982

Anyway, Victoria Lord was portrayed by Erika Slezak, the

daughter of Walter Slezak.  Walter

appeared in many Hollywood movies, usually as a villain or thug, but

occasionally in a lighter role, as in “The Wonderful World of the Brothers

Grimm.  I’m guessing you’d have to

be about my age to barely remember him…

And exactly what he has to do with frankfurter goulash, I

have no idea.  I just stumbled

across this recipe on the Internet and since it’s different, thought I’d give

it a whirl.
