This week’s winning recipe comes from Areli B. of Hopkinton, MA that has a very different twist on a tailgate and cookout staple. Now everyone has been to tailgates that serve up hot dogs. Some do the very basic ketchup, mustard and relish whereas some take it to the extreme. Areli’s recipe combines simplicity as well as unique flavors and textures then brings it all together with bacon. Grab a few ingredients at the store and you’re ready to go with these Bacon Burrito Dogs!
Bacon Burrito Dog
-8 Pork Hot dogs or sausages
-8 Fajita flour tortillas
-1 lb Bacon
-4 oz Shredded Monterrey cheese
-1 Tbs Canola oil
Heat on low a cast iron skillet, add oil. Assemble the burritos by placing the hot dog and cheese and wrapping tight the tortilla (eggroll style). Wrap the bacon around the burrito. Cook the burrito and turn it around until the bacon is crisp. Cut into halves, serve with fresh salsa.
