Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs
Clearly this is not a healthy eating blog with the type of food that I put on here every so often. We're having bacon-wrapped hot dogs for lunch this fine Labor Day Holiday, so I thought I'd share this post that was originally on Karene's Kitchen on 9/9/08 (I merged Karene's Kitchen into Lily's Licorice back in the spring.)
It was always a special treat when mom made the bacon wrapped hot dogs for dinner. That meant we were getting chips and pop with dinner. No salad, potatoes or milk! Yippee!
These are absolutely delicious. You slice an opening long ways in the hot dog. Then you fill it with small slices of American cheese. Take a slice of bacon (2 actually works best to make it fit fully around the hot dog) and wrap it around the hot dog. Then you broil the hot dog til the bacon is done. You can also toast the bun just a bit. Top the dog with what you usually top it with, and Whala! you have a most delectable hot dog.
