Earlier this year, Chris and I visited Ann Arbor and we stopped by a Korean diner in Kerrytown for lunch. Chris ordered a bacon wrapped hot dog deep fried with kimchi on it. It was pretty interesting! It inspired me to make my own at-home version so here it is —slightly healthier. I don’t normally eat hot dogs but when you get the organic kind with no nitrates or additives you feel better about eating it.
- 4 bacon slices (I used apple smoked bacon)
- 4 organic beef hot dogs (better and healthier for you –no nitrates, no additives)
- 4 hot dog buns
- 4 tablespoons of kimchi relish
Take one bacon slice and wrap it around one hot dog so it’s mostly/completely covered with bacon. In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, cook your bacon wrapped hot dog until it’s brown and crispy. Put the hot dog in a bun and top it with 1 tablespoon of kimchi relish.
