If you like pickles or peppers on your dogs, then these Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs Stuffed with Pickles & Peppers are for you!
Another day, another hot dog. This time I’ve taken pickles and peppers – choose one or both! – and stuffed them into a lengthwise slit then wrapped ’em in bacon. Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs Stuffed with Pickles & Peppers are fun to make and better to eat!
These are really easy to do as you can see from the photo. Just make a lengthwise slit about 3/4 of the way through the dogs then add pieces of whatever you like: pickles, peppers, onion…you could even use crumbled bacon then wrap them in bacon, too! Done and done!
For the bacon-wrapped hot dogs, it’s pretty self-explanatory but you will need a couple of toothpicks per dog. A tip for this is to make sure both toothpicks go in the same direction so they’ll easily lie flat on the grill and you can flip them easily. I also don’t suggest a thick-cut bacon as it will take too long to cook and its harder to roll.
The pickles I used were SO good! They’re called Wicked Pickles and I picked a jar up at my local grocery store. I actually felt bad because I absentmindedly put them in my cart and didn’t realize they were spicy, which I love but my daughters don’t. So back to the store I went for a non-spicy pickle for them. But it was worth it because the Wicked Pickles are awesome! I’ll definitely buy them again.
These Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs are so much better than just regular ol’ dogs. They’re quick to make and you could have a tray of regular, stuffed, etc. for a fun barbecue. You can also check out my Cheesy Bacon Beef Hot Dogs, Buffalo Blue Cheese Frankfurters or Cheesy Mexican Gourmet Hot Dogs, too!
- 8 hot dogs
- 8 hot dog buns, butter them first if you like
- 8 slices bacon, not thick-cut
- jalapeños & pickles, for stuffing (cut into pieces small enough to fit, if necessary)
- Cut a slit lengthwise along each hot dog about 3/4 through. Place peppers, pickles or whatever you can think of into slits, taking care not to overfill. Wrap each dog tightly with bacon, securing each end with a toothpick.
- Grill hot dogs until bacon is crisp. Toast the buns on the grill until lightly browned (butter the buns first if preferred). Serve immediately.
