How do you make a hot dog taste even better? Wrap it in some bacon of course! This bacon wrapped hot dog is the best hot dog you will ever eat. Pick a good quality bun and toast that on the grill for a bit. Wrap some bacon around the hot dog and tada! . Your neighbors will be so jealous of all the glorious smells coming from your backyard, they will start knocking on your door.
The past couple of days, I’ve had a hankering for some good old American Hot Dogs. Since tomorrow is the 4th, there will be plenty of people cooking hot dogs on the grill. One of my favorite hot dog brands is Hebrew National. They make a 97% fat free hot dog for only 1 smart point. Pair that with a lite hot dog bun that is 2 smart points and you can make some pretty creative hot dogs. I kept my hot dog simple and wrapped it in some bacon.
Some sides to have with hotdogs that I like are grilled potatoes, corn, potato chips, and watermelon. I love Summer food it is the best.Print
6 Lite Hot Dog buns
6 97% fat free hot dogs such as Hebrew National
6 slices of applewood smoked bacon
6 tablespoons of reduced sugar ketchup
A box of tooth picks for keeping the bacon on the hot dog
Take one slice of bacon and start wrapping it around the hot dog. Use a tooth pick to help secure the bacon on to the hot dog on each side.
Turn your grill on to high heat (500 degrees F)
Place your dogs wrapped in bacon on indirect heat and cook on each side for 3 minutes or until the bacon is cooked through.
Open up your hot dog buns and spray them with cooking spray. Toast them on the grill for 3 minutes or until they start turning golden brown.
For toppings use some sugar free ketchup and drizzle that on top of your hot dog.
