      Ahhh. The Whistle Dog of my youth! It used to be my favourite thing at A&W. This is a wonderful version. I used a great quality hot dog and only 1 slice of bacon per dog. Toasted the buns under the oven broiler and grilled the hot dogs on an indoor grill. Thanks for sharing. These may very well become our summertime treat!

      Loved A&W as a kid (esp. the drive in part), so just had to try this recipe. Easy and tasty change from plain hot dogs, do as Cookin-jo says, and get a good quality dog. I didn't use the outdoor grill, but pan fried the dogs in my cast iron skillet and these were very good. Thanks for sharing!
