  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 tbsp butter or oil
  • 8 pieces bacon 1 per hot dog
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced thin
  • 1 yellow onion sliced thin
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • desired condiments


  • Wrap one piece of bacon around one hot dog, being sure to secure the ends of the bacon, where possible.  Repeat for all hot dogs and bacon.
  • Warm oil over medium heat.  Sauté peppers and onions (sprinkled with salt and peppeuntil browned.  Set aside in a warm place.
  • Cook bacon-wrapped hot dogs over medium heat until the bacon is browned & crisp, and the hot dogs are cooked through.
  • Serve in buns and top with any desired condiments.  Add the peppers and onions and enjoy!


I always place the hot dogs on the heat with the edges of bacon down...this will hold them in place while they cook so the bacon doesn't unwrap off of the hot dog.
If you are worried that your bacon will come unwrapped, try using a toothpick (broken in half will work) to pin the bacon to the hot dog.  Remove before serving.
I have cooked these outside on a charcoal grill, and inside on a grill pan and in a cast iron skillet.  It has worked great all three ways.  Use your favorite cooking method!
