Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs aka Danger Dogs
Make these bacon wrapped hot dogs anyway you like! I give tips on getting the bacon nice and crispy and how to keep it from un-rolling. Have you ever heard of a danger dog?
- 4 Hot Dogs
- 4 Slices bacon (thin - see notes)
Pre heat the oven to 400F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper, foil, or a silicone baking mat
Cut 4 diagonal slits in each hot dog and wrap the bacon around each hot dog in a diagonal. Secure each end of the bacon with a toothpick.
Place on the baking sheet and bake in the oven until the bacon is fully cooked to your liking. This took about 15 minutes for me.
When I shop for bacon that I will be using to wrap something like these hot dogs or asparagus, I look for one that is 60-70 calories per slice. Most bacon is 80 calories per slice but there are a few out there, like Smithfield, that are 60, or ButcherBox bacon (click here to see the latest promotion from ButcherBox)!
While I use thin bacon, I used bigger hot dogs. This keeps the hot dogs from getting really over cooked while the bacon is getting crispy.
