Hawaiian Bacon Dogs

Just about everyone that eats meat loves a classic dog. There’s just something about them that is so simple and nostalgic; you can remember that time you were eating a dog watching the home team. As delicious as the classic hot dog is with the traditional toppings like catchup, mustard and relish; it’s fun to mix it up with something a little unexpected. We’re still going to keep it simple, but throw in some island flavor and make Hawaiian Bacon Dogs. I might normally say to bacon wrap the hot dogs, but these Uncured Bacon Dogs from Vermont Smoke & Cure have bacon on the inside. Pretty cool, right?

If you were cooking out on your grill, you could definitely grill pineapple and onion slices by first brushing them with a little bit of oil.

  • cilantro
  • 6 hot dog buns

Instructions

  • Heat some oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions until they soften, then add the pineapple and cook for a few minutes until it starts to get a little color. Season with a little salt and pepper, remove from heat and set aside.
  • Score the hot dogs with a few spiral shaped slices with a sharp knife. Heat skillet over high heat with a thin layer of oil. Cook the dogs on each side until they start to brown and are warm all the way through.
  • Serve the hot dogs in the buns topped with the pineapple, red onions and garnished with cilantro. Serve with Hawaiian style kettle potato chips.

Notes

If you can't find the bacon hot dogs, you can definitely add some cooked bacon slices to get that bacon flavor. Heck, you could do that in addition to the bacon dogs. Never enough bacon.
