Hot Dog Night

Dana Hayden, M.Ed.


Hot dog night was date night for my parents. When I saw the package of Oscar Mayer hot dogs on the counter I knew the babysitter would be there soon.
Greasy food photographs so well! I like how the bacon looks in these photos.

How to Make Hot Dog Night


  • 1Form assembly line of hot dogs sliced lenghtwise, the 1/2 inch cheddar cheese strips and last the bacon strips.
  • 2Open each hot dog, put slices of cheese in the slit.
    If using the onion strips place them over the cheese.
    Wrap each end of the hot dog, fanning out the bacon so it can be crisp all the way through. Toothpicks can be used to secure the bacon but soak them first in water for ten minutes so they don't burn.
  • 3Broil for two minutes cheese/onion side down. Then carefully turn over and cook top of hot dog for 2-3 more minutes. I have also done this recipe in a cast iron skillet.
  • 4Put in a bun, or not, and serve with the side dishes of your choice.
