Reviews for Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs
"Great recipe and hints! My son loved these. Perfect!!"
"as much as I love hot dogs... I've never heard of bacon wrapped hot dogs, i know im pathetic lol. but this looks super delicious. the only problem is if I'm good enough to make this considering the fact the only time I experimented on hot dogs is the hot dog making game http://papasgames.us/papas-hot-doggeria/ Hot Doggeria lol. thanks for the recipe though :P)"
"We used Jalapeno Cheddar dogs. Very good!"
"I love hot dogs and I love bacon, so when I saw this recipe I thought combining them was a great idea. I used a plain beef hot dog, and the only optional condiment I used was horseradish mustard. Sounds crazy, but it was good! Thanks Texas!"
