BLT Dogs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chef shapeweaver

One night I was watching "Throwdown With Bobby Flay" and he was challenging "Pink's" which is a hot dog stand in Hollywood Ca. I was inspired to make my own "gourmet" hot dog. Loving BLT's as much as I do, this recipe is the end result of that inspiration. Now this will make 8 servings if you have side dishes,or 4 servings with 2 "dogs" each. For sides I would suggest your favorite recipes for baked beans, slaw, or potato salad. Submitted to "Zaar" on May 20th,2007.

These were great. I got a great deal on hot dogs at the grocery store, so I'm trying to find creative ways to use them. I never would have thought of this myself! My husband loved them too. I wouldn't change anything about ther recipe. I will be making these again!
