Dressed up Dogs!

Posted by Picasa

Hi, friends! I'm participating in the magazine cooking event at Kitchen Bouquet, but I have to admit that I'm going to cheat a little!  This recipe was either in Family Circle or Women's Day about 50 years ago ... when I was in grade school!  It had to be one of those two magazines, because they were the only ones my mother would buy!  (...because they were not expensive)   I begged her to make these hotdogs ... and she told me that she thought I should make them.  This was probably the first thing that I ever cooked!

So, I remember making them ... and I still make them the same way!  The recipe couldn't be simpler.  Each hotdog is wrapped in a piecee of bacon (I fry it until it is almost done, but still pliable), then placed in an open bun that has a piece of American cheese laying in it... topped with mustard, katchup, pickle relish (but we always used Mom's homemade pepper relish ... I still make it ... so I still use that) ... and then bundled up in aluminum foil and baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes!

They come out with a bun that is a little crispy ... a dog that is steamed perfectly ... and a combined flavor that takes me back to my childhood.   These became a big hit in our household for Saturday lunch, usually with soup or chili in the winter ....  and fresh tomatoes and cucumber/onion salad in the summer.

Enjoy ... and special thanks to our hostess for keeping our creative juices flowing!


  1. So glad you joined in. I'm pretty loose about rules, so if you have had a recipe clipping rattling around in your head for 50 years then I more than happy to have you pull it out for the challenge! Its new to the rest of us! I think my hubby would love these. Everything is better with bacon!

  2. Sounds great Debbie! I have some dogs in the freezer! I just heard of a new party Bacon Monday, doesn't that sound like fun! It's on my sidebar if interested. Happy Sunday:@)

  3. Those dogs sure sound good! Is your moms relish posted on your blog?

  4. Looks so good! Has bacon, how could it not be? Love those old recipes, simple yet out of this world!
