Wrapping hot dogs in bacon is like giving every one of your picnic guests a big old hug! They are simple to make and absurdly delicious.
BYOA. (Bring Your Own Awesome!) That's what everyone will be saying once they get a taste of these incredible bacon-wrapped hot dogs. No longer do friends and neighbors have to settle with the same-old hockey puck burgers and overcooked wieners at your summer barbecue. With just a minute of prep time, it's easy to take your hot dogs from blah to bacon-licious!
Wrapping food in bacon is a fairly new phenomenon. It seems everyone everywhere is obsessed with the stuff. And why not? Its salty, smoky flavor adds that special touch to everything from jalapenos to shrimp.
When wrapped around your standard beef hot dog, bacon turns plain-old picnic fare into something fabulous. With its striped spiral baked until crispy and all served up in a bun, it looks amazing. Better yet, it tastes ridiculously good. Like a party in your mouth. A party thrown by bacon, just for you!
To make bacon-wrapped hot dogs, simply twirl a slice of bacon around a beef hot dog. (Make sure you wrap it tightly.) Then place the hot dogs on a baking sheet with the ends of the bacon tucked underneath the hot dog to keep it in place while baking.
That's it! Just wrap, bake and enjoy!
