Banh Mi Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog


Bacon wrapped hot dogs with a Banh Mi Slaw and toppings will never let you look at a regular hot dog the same way again. 

I loved the fresh and spicy slaw that provides a really spicy flavor punch against the pork-iclious hot dog and bacon combination. 

I made them on an indoor grill pan, but you can certainly make them on the outdoor grill too since we are entering grilling season.  

Then I topped it with my favorite condiment ever... sriracha and it was all about enjoying each bite.  These dogs are so fun and delicious, they are meant to be savored.

Hot dogs  (favorite brand- I used all-beef)
Hot dog buns
bacon (one strip for each hot dog)

Broccoli Slaw:
2 cups of bagged broccoli slaw *
2 Tbs rice wine vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar ( or to taste)
salt and black pepper to taste (or you can substitute grated carrot, thinly sliced cabbage, grated broccoli stems, onions)

thin strips of English cucumber
thin strips of sliced jalapeno (seeds removed)
sliced scallion (green onions)


Wrap bacon around hot dogs tightly.  Place on a lightly greased cast iron grill pan that has been heated on medium heat.  

Place bacon press on top of wrapped hot dogs.  Grill on each side until fully cooked.   Serve on toasted hot dog buns with broccoli banh mi slaw and garnishes.  Serve hot. Enjoy.
