How’s that football going? It doesn’t matter if your team is a loser, because with these BBQ Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs, you are definitely winning for sure.
See what I did there? I’m so clever.
My team is miraculously winning, so I am keeping my fingers crossed, and maybe making these bacon wrapped hot dogs every week for good luck. It can’t hurt, right? Superstitions are a thing, after all.
Can you believe that I’ve never had a bacon wrapped hot dog until I started playing with this recipe? Blasphemy, I know.
It’s even worse because omg look what I have been missing out on?! These things are amazing!
I went with KING’S HAWAIIAN® Hot Dogs Buns, as well their Smoked Bacon BBQ Sauce, and they were a perfect combination of sweet and savory for this grill-worthy delight.
Also, onion strings are hella fun to make. I definitely think you need a good mandoline for them, though, if you want to get them thin enough for true onion strings. I deep fried them on the stovetop in a pot, but seriously, if you have a countertop deep fryer, it would be perfect for these babies.
The hot dogs themselves are super super easy. Just wrap one dog with one piece of bacon and slap it on a medium-high grill. Once the bacon is nice and crispy, you’re good to go, cause that dog is going to be perfect on the inside.
And, if you’re anything like me, you want to score all the goodies to make an easy football meal with the Combo Loco deals at your local HEB! I could not live without my HEB, I swear.
Like, wither away and die. It’s sad.
If you like a little irony in your life, use some delicious kosher hot dogs for this dish. And don’t skimp on that KING’S HAWAIIAN® Smoked Bacon BBQ Sauce either!
