Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog


  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 red onion or shallot
  • bacon

I made these with my mom a while ago, but never got around the blogging about it. I know that making a hot dog is really straightforward, but this is a quick way to make a normal hot dog a bit more interesting.

I really love those bacon wrapped hot dogs that you see out around the downtown area, sold on those little carts. They always look and smell really good. I took one piece of bacon and wrapped the hot dog. I placed the hot dog in a hot pan with no oil, with the loose end of the bacon faced down, so it cooks and also holds the dog together with the bacon.

We chopped some red and green bell peppers, along with some red onion. we sauteed the vegetables in the same pan with the bacon fat— lots of great flavor right there. I used ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise on the hot dog in the end. It tasted really good!

This is just a quick way to eat your hot dog in a different way.
