Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs

Lately, I’ve seen a few jazzed up hot dogs, like these Fajita Hot Dogs, that made me look at this American phenomenon in a new light! When I mentioned that hot dogs were on the menu to the hubby, the silence was palpable. I knew he was thinking a dog from the grocery store tucked in a mushy, mass produced bun that he’d have to douse in ketchup. With his first bite of these bacon encased, butcher shop hot dogs, he declared them a hit. I had planned on grilling but turned to  my non-stick skillet when storms rolled through our area as I prepped dinner. The smoky flavor from the bacon was enough to kick these up more than one notch! They were spectacular!Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs with Fruit Salsa | An irresistible gourmet dog!

Wrapping the Bacon

I was overly optimistic, thinking the bacon would be self-sticking like the thin Italian prosciutto in my Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto. Nope. So I turned to the trusty toothpick. Not ideal, but I inserted one on each end to anchor the bacon as well as to make the picks nearly impossible to ignore. There were rumors that my dad accidentally ate a candle on his birthday cake when we were kids. Not sure if martinis were involved or not!  So I worried that my hubby might need some sort of throat extraction if he fell to the same fate! My advice is to pull them out as you load the buns. Between the spicy flavorful dogs, the salty bacon and the sweet and spicy fruit salsa, I was in heaven with every bite. Make sure to buy the best quality hot dogs you can find plus good bulk bacon and these bacon wrapped hot dogs will become a summer tradition! Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs with Fruit Salsa | An irresistible gourmet dog!

Author:
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 Hot Dogs (I purchased from our nearby butcher shop)
  • 4-6 slices thick bacon
  • 4 hot dog buns
Salsa:
  • 1 medium peach, peeled and diced (about ½ cup)
  • ½ cup diced strawberries
  • 1 medium jalapeno, seeds removed, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced red onion
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1½ teaspoons olive oil
Instructions
  1. Wrap a slice of bacon around each hot dog (you can add another ½ slice if you want more coverage, but I had to use toothpicks to help the extra slice adhere).
  2. Place in a skillet and cook, turning as needed until bacon is cooked and hot dog is heated through.
  3. While hot dogs are cooking, make salsa. Add all ingredients to a bowl and toss to combine.
  4. Serve hot dogs in buns with your favorite condiments and top with salsa.

  1. mmmm…bacon and fruit salsa…this is one very special hot dog treat!

  2. Bacon wrapping is indeed a bit tricky…Yet, as always, you managed to make the dogs beautiful. Especially with that fruit salsa. P.s. Good tip on taking out the toothpicks before serving =)

  3. What a great tribute to HOTDOG Day you really made this special! WOW!!!

  4. Kristen Chidsey says:

    I am a once a year kinda hotdog person myself, but these recipes are making me change my tune as well! Love that topping.

  5. Wow! What a beautiful hot dog! The fruit really adds pretty color to it and of course, bacon. Bacon makes everything perfect!

  6. What a great way to serve a hot dog. I love the salsa!

  7. I’m not a big hot dog eater either. In fact, I’ll just take the fruit salsa 😉 I’m a fruit addict. Great idea to remove the toothpicks. You wouldn’t expect one to be in your hot dog and very well might eat it.

  8. The savory bacon with the fruit topping, oh my gosh! So amazing.

  9. I love the combination of the salty bacon and the fresh, sweet salsa. genius idea!

  10. These sound heavenly! From the spice to the smokey bacon and the sweet fruit on top! YUM!

  11. Love the salsa on these dogs.

  12. Teri @ The Freshman Cook says:

    Love the salsa and the bacon together. Such wonderful flavors!

  13. This is the fanciest hot dog I’ve ever seen!

  14. Love the fruit salsa idea. How unusual, but I love sweet and salty flavors mixed!
