These were served at our Finger Food Fiesta For New Years. My sons gobbled them up. They were extremely easy to make. The recipe calls to serve them hot but they are great after they have cooled down as well. From Company's Coming - Appetizers - by Jean Paré.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 hot dogs, cut in 6 pieces
  • 12 slices bacon, wide (or twice the number of narrow slices)


  1. Wieners that are 5 inches (13cm) in length can be cut into 6 pieces each for bite-size servings. (I don't usually count. I just cut them up into little bites).
  2. Fry bacon slices until fat part has lost its whiteness. Do not fry until crisp or it won't roll. Cut slice in half crosswise and lengthwise. Allow to cool.(I usually do about 4 slices of bacon in the microwave for about 4 to 5 minutes. Then while I am getting the next plate ready to microwave, the first batch of bacon is cooling.).
  3. When cool enough to handle, wrap around wiener section and secure with toothpick. Uncooked bacon may be used but it takes longer to cook (they need broiling) at the last minute.
  4. To serve: Arrange on baking tray (or plate for microwave) and heat in hot oven, 400°F (200°C) until sizzling hot. Can be kept hot on serving tray. (We served them piled nice and high in a pretty bowl.)
  5. Watch for toothpicks!

Bloody excellant. I used Kabana instead of hot dogs and i was thinking that sun dried tomatoes in them would be nice too.

I made these for the second 2006 Pick A Chef Contest. I made these at 5:00 in the morning for a dinner at work. I had to have my daughter at the sitter by 5:30. It took very little time to make and was extremely easy!! They were also extremely yummy!! I used honey maple bacon and WOW did that give it just a good kick also. A little sweetness to this was GREAT!!! They were devoured!! I am definatly keeping this one handy and KUDOS to Saturn!!!
