Here's a great kid's lunch or snack, a little different from the average hot dog! They're great with or without a bun. Add tomato sauce, mustard and onions if you like.
Great recipe! Brought back old memories for me, also. I am the chef & Aunt in a busy household with my brother, his wife and their 5 kids. I mention that because my sister-in-law wasn't too fond of the "Mad Dog" idea because of the high fat content. So, we compromised: Regular hotdogs, reduced fat cheese and (preheated) turkey bacon. They cooked up nicely with a lot less grease. **Here's my twist on it though: I wrapped them in cresent rolls before baking, as my mother used to do. We then used our condiments as a dipping sauce rather then a topping. (I wrapped mine with chopped onions inside) :-) The kids definatly loved to help make & eat these (as did my brother) & we'll make them again! - 25 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
i like this recipe so did my neice, the only thing was that the bacon didn't get cripsy like i thought. It could be because i used thicker bacon, maybe next will use regular bacon. I did put it under the broiler for a few minutes and that did help but not to my moms liking but she likes her bacon really crispy. Diffinitely will do this again. thanks - 22 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made these for a 4th of July cookout and they were a huge hit! I used beef hot dogs and american cheese. I also used pre-cooked bacon. Instead of wrapping and securing the bacon, I just placed a strip on top of each dog while baking. Served with catsup, mustard and finely chopped onions. Yum yum - I'm a convert now - it'll be hard doing back to eating plain old hot dogs now. - 06 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
