Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs

Serves Serves 6     adjust servings


  • 6 hot dogs*
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • toothpicks
  • 6 buns
  • butter or mayonnaise, for grilling the buns
  • all the fixins (ketchup mustard, mayo, etc.)

For the onion topping

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 half onion, sliced
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 jalapeno
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat your grill to low heat.
  2. Wrap one slice of bacon around each hot dog. Use 2 toothpicks per hot dog to secure them on the ends. (Push the toothpicks in as far as you can so they don't burn.)
  3. Grill the hot dogs on low heat for several minutes, turning every couple minutes to cook all the bacon. This should take about 8-10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your bacon.
  4. When they are almost done, spread your buns with either mayonnaise or butter. Grill cut-side-down for about 1-3 minutes, until they have some nice grill marks on them.
  5. Meanwhile, make the topping. Slice the onions. Slice the green peppers into bite-size strips. Slice the jalapeno thinly, discarding the membrane.
  6. In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat until it is hot and melted. Add the vegetables and saute for about 6-8 minutes, until they are as done as you like them.
  7. Top each hot dog with onion mixture, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, etc.
