Makes: 6 hot dogs
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
2 to 4 slices center-cut bacon
6 bun-length beef hot dogs
6 hot dog buns
Pickle relish, sauerkraut or slaw for serving
1. In a large cast-iron skillet, cook six slices of bacon over medium-low heat, turning once, until fat is rendered and edges are almost crispy (about 5 minutes). Transfer bacon to a plate; cool. Discard excess bacon drippings, but don’t wash pan.
2. Wrap bacon slices, overlapping, around hot dogs. Break a few toothpicks in half; use to secure ends of bacon.
3. Cook bacon-wrapped hot dogs in same skillet (or in a grill pan) over medium heat, turning often, until bacon is golden and crisp (about 5 minutes). While hot dogs are cooking, warm buns on grill or in oven.
4. Remove toothpicks from hot dogs; serve hot dogs in warmed buns topped with relish, sauerkraut or slaw.
