How do you wrap a Hot Dog in Bacon:
Prepare you the area with the hot dogs on a plate. I like to go ahead and take them out of the package. Then have your toothpicks available with your bacon on a plate out of the package.
- Take a piece of bacon and begin wrapping a hot dog. We try to not overlap the thin slices of bacon so that it cooks complete.
- Depending on the size of the hot dog, you will need one bacon slice per hot dog.
