  • 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.
  • Find hot dogs that have less carbs like Nathan's with only 1 carb
