Mock Drumsticks


Drumsticks of ground beef, hmm

I can remember as a teen, wanting a hotdog but we only had ground beef, so I formed a hotdog shape of hamburger, cooked it and at it in a hotdog bun. It fell apart but it tasted good. This particular recipe reminded me of that funny experience because it calls for the cook to make up a meatloaf type mix and shape it into chicken drumstick facsimiles. I wonder if the person who originally created this was just tired of meatloaf or didn’t like chicken with a bone, or what in the world s/he was thinking. Maybe it was a way to coax finicky eaters into finishing their dinners? Who knows. I also wonder if this is anything like a Swiss steak or chicken fried steak…
