Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs
My wife decided what hot dogs need to liven them up is slices of hickory smoked bacon. Her and my children think bacon is the answer to every food question so they deep fried bacon wrapped hot dogs.
She simply wrapped each hot dog with one slice of hickory smoked bacon. She pinned the bacon to one end with wooden kebob skewers then wrapped them in a barber pole pattern. Then pinned the other end.
She then fried the hot dogs using my 4 gallon propane powered outdoor deep fryer. I am sure a small electric deep fryer would work just as well. She was able to fry four at a time with the large fryer. With a small indoor table fryer you may have to fry smaller batches. The hot dogs don’t take up much room. It’s the skewers that make it hard to cook too many at a time.
Four fried bacon wrapped hot dogs with skewers removed. Make sure and get all of the skewer out of the dog.

This is what the finished product looks like.
This is what the meal looked like that night. I was still on my diet at the time so I didn’t partake but the kids gave them rave reviews. They tried them plain and with mustard. The consensus was mustard or not the hot dogs were delicious with bacon wrapped around them.
