Warmer weather just calls for some good hamburger and hot dog recipes! This specific recipe has been one that I’ve wanted to recreate at home for a while. While we were at a picnic through our local energy co-op there was a gourmet hot dog truck there and this was the one that I chose.
I picked it because: 1) It had bacon on it! 2) There was a sauce on it that sounded amazing, garlic aioli. My interest was peaked and I am glad that I chose this one, amazing.
Now that I’ve made this recipe at home, I will definently be adding it to my hot dog rotation for sure!

How to make a Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog:
Wrapping bacon on hot dogs is so simple! Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees.
Wrap a baking sheet with tin foil. This will make clean up so much easier!
Start by taking a piece of bacon at the top of a hot dog. Wrap the bacon going down around the hot dog. Place on the baking sheet and continue until they are all wrapped.
Bake in the oven for 12-18 minutes. The quickness of these getting done depending on your oven temperature.
Take the bacon and put under the broiler for 40-50 seconds.
Take them out and turn, put under the broiler again for another 40-50 seconds to crisp the other side.
Steam some buns and add the hot dogs to them. Now they are ready for topping!
