Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog Recipe

a FoodieView Original Recipe by Founder Howie Wang

We tend to think of the hot dog as a quintessentially American food, but this fiendishly delicious variation comes via our neighbors South of the border. The Danger Dog is a hot dog wrapped in bacon and served with grilled onions and peppers. Street vendors in Mexico have been serving these treats for years, and now bacon-wrapped hot dogs have made their way north to California and New York, where they have become a favorite post-barhopping snack. We’re not sure if the Danger Dog got its perilous name from its artery-clogging nature or the questionable sanitation standards of their vendors. Whatever the reason, this bit of bacony goodness makes for serious man food on the big game day. And the best part is that it’s really quick and easy to make. Yields 8 servings.

  • 1 large onion
  • 3 to 4 jalapenos
  • 8 strips of bacon
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • Mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard (optional)
  • Cut onion into slices. Cut jalapenos in half, remove seeds, and slice them lengthwise into 1/8-inch wide strips.
  • Wrap a strip of bacon tightly around each hot dog.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large pan. Add onions and peppers, but keep the onions and peppers separate from each other. Cook until soft and a little brown (about 12 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon-wrapped hot dogs in another pan over medium heat. Turn hot dogs occasionally until bacon is crisp on all sides (about 12 minutes).
  • After hot dogs are cooked, stick them in buns and top with sautéed onions and peppers to taste.
  • You can add ketchup or mustard, but the traditional condiment is mayo.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

a FoodieView Original Recipe by Founder Howie Wang

Have you ever wanted the taste of buffalo chicken wings, but didn’t want to go through the hassle of frying up your own wings? Then this recipe is for you. This dip has the creamy, tangy, spicy flavors of buffalo chicken, and it only takes a few minutes to make. It’s also versatile; you can dress it up by substituting shrimp or crab for the chicken and serve it with Belgian endive spears.

  • 12 ounces cooked chicken breast
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese
  • 1 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups cheddar cheese
  1. Chop chicken breast into small pieces.
  2. Put all ingredients into large saucepan and warm over medium-low heat. Stir until cream cheese has fully melted.
  3. Serve with chips, crackers, celery sticks, carrot sticks, or other vegetables good for dipping.

a FoodieView Original Recipe by Founder Howie Wang

This simple recipe is perfect for throwing together on game day. You just mix all the ingredients together and pop it in the oven while you enjoy the game. I don’t know of any recipe that pays off so much for so little effort. It’s so addictively good that my guests always hover over the bowl until all the kielbasa is gone.

  • 2 pounds kielbasa
  • 1 box (16 ounces) brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  1. Heat oven to 250 degrees. Cut kielbasa into bite-size pieces.
  2. Put all ingredients into a 9-by-13-inch baking pan and mix together.
  3. Place baking pan into the oven. Stir every half hour or so. Remove after baking for 2 hours. Serve with toothpicks.
