Hawaiian Hot Dog
A grass skirt isn't required to eat this dog, but it is strongly encouraged.
Units: US | Metric
1 package of your favorite Beef Frank
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 lb bacon, use the regular length kind, not the 12 oz size
condiments, of your choice
hot dog bun
1 Slit each hotdog almost in half lengthwise, leaving it in still one piece but opened up like a book.
2 Use about 1 rounded teaspoon of crushed pineapple in each hotdog. Close the hotdog, surrounding the pineapple and wrap with a piece of bacon. Secure both ends with a pointed end toothpick and grill until bacon is semi-crisp.
3 I think that the buns are optional, particularly if you are doing the low carb thing, but they do make it easier to eat and hold all the other goodies like pickle relish, mustard and salsa.
4 Of late, I have been partially cooking the bacon ahead of time and then wrapping it around the filled hotdog. If you do it that way, you can always place the filled tubes of joy in a covered baking dish and put them in the over @ 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
