(BECAUSE WE'RE NOT FAT ENOUGH)... THE BACON-WRAPPED HOT DOG
"What began as Tijuana street food quickly has spread north."
Bacon-wrapped hot dogs are all the rage with the late-night crowd, and vendors outside the HP Pavilion in San Jose and the Fox Theater in Oakland.
They're called "Danger Dogs", and are are even popping up on some Northern Cali cafe menus. One national fast-food chain -- Wienerschnitzel -- has gotten in on the action, too.
Cook Your own Danger Dog
1. Wrap bacon around a hot dog, corkscrew-style. Secure the bacon to the hot dog using (nonplastic) tooth picks.
2. Grill the hot dog, as you would normally. It's done when the bacon gets crispy. (If you don't want the bacon too crispy, you can partially cook the hot dogs before putting on the bacon, then place on the grill.) Remove the toothpicks and place the hot dog in a bun.
3. Top it with your favorite condiments or go "street " style and add mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and grilled onions.
