Here's a juicy, delicious and savory meal in a bun! I make it for picnics, barbecues and tailgate parties, and it always gets compliments. To transport, wrap the hot dogs in foil and then in paper. —Peter Halferty, Corpus Christi, TX

"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 Hot Doggeria lol. thanks for the recipe though :P)"

"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!"
