Glenn's Ultimate Hot Dogs


I'm afraid this post just had to be done. When Glenn (my hubs) gets an idea about something he wants to make, he will not drop it until he gets it. I found these chicken andouille sausages at Costco, and I snatched them up because they were only two points each! Glenn was also SO excited, because it meant he would finally get the ultimate hotdogs that he'd been dreaming about nonstop for the last two weeks.

These are incredibly simple. You split your dog down the center, stuff with grated cheese of your choice, wrap tightly in bacon and secure with toothpicks. Grill, turning so that the bacon gets evenly cooked, don't be alarmed if some of the cheese drips out. Place in your bun, top with mustard, onions, relish, whatever sounds good to you. Be sure to have your defibrillator paddles close just to be safe!

You'll notice that mine was missing the bacon and cheese, not because I didn't want one, but because I probably would have ended up so sick if I ate one in it's entirety. I did try one though, and it was good. My advice would be to start with just a plain hotdog, and not a sausage or brat. The cheese and bacon already add so much flavor that the sausage made the whole thing a bit overwhelming. Definitely not the healthiest dish, but hey, it's summertime, you gotta let loose every once and a while!

I hate to admit that this sounds wonderful. I love grilled dogs and adding cheese and bacon puts it over the top.

Harmons has hot dogs on sale this week and I was thinking it was time to grill some dogs. Way to kick it up a notch. I'll give them a try!

Your hubby is a genius. That's all I have to say. I'm not sure I should show these ultimate hotdogs to my boyfriend because he might run to the grill to make them right away. No joke. They look fantastic! Great thinking, Glenn!

My coronary is creakin' at the sight of these, but they do look good, and I know that we WILL be trying this. Looks to sinful not to!

My taste buds are saying YES, but my arteries are saying NO. LOL. Either way it won't stop me from downing a couple of those. It's not like we eat them everyday anyway, right? LOL. In the Philippines they have something similar with cheese on the inside of the hotdog, but without the bacon.

My husband has done one better than that - he's done the same thing but DEEP FAT FRIED it!

I had a bite and it was amazing!

I'll have to find those 2 point dogs!

Oh man, I'm going to have to tell Glenn, I guarantee that will be the next adventure! Don't be surprised if our next blog is about how we burnt our house down due to a grease fire!
