The latest recipe swap theme was “Too Hot to Cook”. We’re lucky enough to have central air, so it’s very rarely too hot for me to turn on the oven. More likely, when the warm weather hits in force, I’ll get lazy and not want to stand over the stove.
This meal is really perfect for days like that. I’ll admit I wasn’t really sure how well this would go over, but the fresh lettuce and tomatoes, something I wouldn’t normally put on a hotdog, really gave it a nice, fresh taste. As an added bonus, my husband fastly prefers his hot dogs microwaved so this meal took just about five minutes to put together, start to finish.
BLT Hot Dogs
(from Tastetastic Voyage)
1 Hot Dog
1-2 slices Bacon, cooked
1 Hot Dog Bun
1 t. Mayonnaise
1/4 c. shredded lettuce
2 T. chopped tomatoes
Cook hot dog as desired. (We microwave ours!)
While the hot dog is cooking, spread mayonnaise inside hot dog roll. Pop in a 350 degree oven for 2-3 minutes, until outside of the bun is lightly toasted and mayonnaise is melty. (Optional, but this step totally makes it for me!)
Place shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes inside the toasted bun. Wrap the cooked hot dog with bacon and add to bun.
