Recipe ~ Baked Bacon & Cheese Hot Dogs

Hi guys, my weekend was pretty amazing and wild (see – stayed out till 4 am on Friday night :/), and as such weekends go, I barely took any photos.

Well, except for these hot dogs I made yesterday … one of the highlights of my weekend.

Lets go back a bit. Last week I made some amazing bacon and cheese ‘hot-dogs’ and decided to re-create them yesterday, except this time I whipped out the fancy cam and took photos since they were too yummy not to share. In the past when I’ve posted recipes, I waxed poetic about the fact that I don’t always look at recipes of cook books and kinda just wing it. The same rings true to this recipe. It was created out of hunger, but is absolutely delicious. As its the 4th July weekend in the U.S. I thought I’d share it with the blog. Doesn’t that look yummy?

Now, this isn’t your typical hot dog (which it why its in inverted commas above), and it does take some prep work, but it’s simple enough to create and really really delicious.

The recipe below makes about 4 hot dogs, though you can stretch it to make about 5.

I do hope you try it (or share it)!
