(originally made 8/2011)
I've found another addictive way to get recipes- friending
bloggers on Facebook. A while back, a post from BarbaraBakes caught my
eye- Bacon Cheese dogs.
Hot dogs are a tough sell around here. Jake likes them, but doesn't
love them, and Tim tolerates them. But when the temps are soaring and
I just want to get a quick lunch on the table, grilled hot dogs it
I used Barbara's post as a guideline- I split the hot dogs
3/4 of the way through, and then stuffed them with thin strips of
American Cheese. I wrapped them with uncooked bacon, and secured it
with toothpicks in several spots. Don't overlap the bacon too much or
it will take forever for it to cook through/brown. If you don't
overlap it enough, all the cheese oozes out :)
I cooked mine
on foil to try and keep the flare ups from the bacon grease to a
minimum, and I also toasted some lightly buttered New england style hot
dog rolls. I like mine with ketchup, mustard and celery salt, which I
put in the bottom of the bun. Less messy that way, but makes for a
boring photo :)
These were a huge hit, and they'll definitely be made again!
Be sure to go check out Barbara's blog- so many wonderful recipes
and she's such a sweet person. This is my 2nd hit to come from her,
and I look forward to many more!
