Val's Story

My kids loved watching "The Cosby Show" episodes a few years ago. My son wanted to try Cliff and Theo Huxtable's Bacon Burger Dogs. I came up with these. Just a fun food for our family!

[To improve the healthfulness, I used natural, lean meat products, and served it with Roasted Kale Chips and mixed fresh berries. The kids prefer beef hot dogs and no kale chips.:)]

Ingredients

2 lb
extra lean ground beef
1/4 c
onions finely chopped or 1 tablespoon onion flakes
1
large egg
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
1/8-1/4 tsp
garlic powder or one clove fresh garlic
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
black pepper
1/8-1/4 tsp
cayenne pepper (optional-most of my family does not like spicy!)
6-8
hot dogs
6-16
natural bacon slices (1-2 slices per b.b.dog)
1/2 c
barbecue sauce (your favorite)
6-8
hot dog buns or steak rolls
cheddar cheese and/or condiments of your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Blend first 7 ingredients by kneading them together.
2
Using a bit more than 1/2 cup of the beef mixture, patted into a rectangle, wrap each hot dog. Cover it completely so that it looks like a cylinder.
3
Wrap bacon around the outside of the burger dog. If using thinly sliced bacon, I would recommend using two slices.
4
Grill the bacon burger dogs until the beef mixture is thoroughly cooked (well done). Be careful to turn them and cook well on all sides.
5
When cooked completely, brush with bbq sauce to your taste.
6
Serve on buns or rolls with extra bbq sauce, a slice of cheddar cheese, or other condiments of your choosing.
7
Enjoy!

    We just really like chili dogs or chili burgers, so this was a suggestion from my son. I just happened to have a can of chili with no beans in the pantry, so we gave it a try. It turned out great. After I finished that though I couldn't eat anything else. LOL
