I then took it to another level by making my hot dog Banh Mi style (Vietnamese sandwich) and added a pickled slaw, fresh cucumbers, jalapenos and some sriracha on the hot dog. Can I tell you... this was the BEST hot dog I have ever eaten in my life. It was perfect on so many levels. The bacon gave the hot dog a wonderful crunch and texture. The slaw gave a nice balance of sweetness and tang. The cucumbers gave freshness and crunch and then the jalapenos and sriracha finished it off perfectly with the spice I so love.
Thank you Good Cook for bringing this Bacon Press into my life... I am so imPRESSED!
The bacon press and the griddle I used are both cast iron. Cast iron is a fantastic piece of cookware and it is something you can own for generations. Don't let seasoning and cleaning your cast iron cookware scare you off. I simply scour with kosher salt and scrub brush. Then I put the cleaned skillet on the stove top and heat it dry and wipe it down with some canola oil. It's as simple as that. Once you start cooking with cast iron, you will always have it on your stove or close by. The Good Cook cast iron skillet rocks and pairing it up with the bacon press makes it even better. I am so excited about all the fun meals that I am going to imPRESS you with soon. :)
