"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for Bunless Dogs, by Karen Miller, is from The Greene Family CookBook,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
Split the hot dogs down the middle, but not all the way through. Slice cheddar cheese lengthwise, so that it fits into the little trough you made in the wiener. Start at one end of the wiener & wrap a slice of bacon all the way to the other end. Secure each end with a toothpick. Bake @ 300 for about 20 minutes. I remove the bacon before serving because it's is limp. But here's my solution if you want to actually eat the bacon. I like the bacon to be well cooked, so I started using the Oscar Mayer pre-cooked bacon. It takes less cooking time & the bacon is edible.
This is another favorite for kids. Nan made them when we were growing up. Mashed potatoes is a great side dish with these, or even cheater oven French fries or tater tots.
