Hot dogs wrapped in bacon!
I made them to offset the vegetarian quesadillas we were having last night. (which were very good by the way).
I made them as a joke for the meat eaters, (I mean hot dogs wrapped in bacon? A complete FATfest) but they were really a great little appetizer. I'll make them again .
I found the recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens Special Publication magazine, called "Mixing Bowl.com." I had all the stuff in my fridge, so I just whipped them out yesterday, right before dinner---for balance (besides the veggie quesadillas we had spicy gazpacho with shrimp--all that being too healthy for the Handyman).
The brown sugar made a wonderfully sweet glaze over the crispy bacon--and then you bit into the hot dog. Mmmmmm. Very good.
Bacon Hot Dog Bites
1 pound hot dogs
1 pound bacon
1 cup brown sugar
Cut each hot dog into quarters. Wrap each piece with 1/3 slice of bacon. Pack tightly in a shallow baking pan. Sprinkle brown sugar generously over all.
Bake at 350 F for one hour, or until bacon is cooked. Pour off the excess fat before using spatula to place onto a serving tray.
(If desired, use a toothpick to secure bacon before cooking)
