Val's notes for this recipe:
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.:)]

Directions

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!

Bobby- Hmm. Chili sounds good. I'm not sure I could eat a whole one if I added much more too it! lol Did you find a recipe or did you just make up your own also?

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
