B.L.T. Hot Dogs

B.L.T. Hot Dogs

BLT's never tasted this good!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 8 hot dogs (organic, all-beef hot dogs recommended)
  • 8 regular thin-cut bacon slices
  • 8 iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes (about 2 small tomatoes)
  • Mustard
  • Mayonnaise


  • Position rack in center of oven and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Wrap each hot dog with a slice of bacon, tucking both edges under so that the bacon does not come unwrapped during baking.

  • Place the hot dogs on a small baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the bacon is crispy and well browned. Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the baking sheet from the oven.

  • Stack the lettuce leaves on top of each other and roll up tightly. Thinly slice into ribbonlike strips.

  • Place one hot dog in each bun and top with diced tomatoes and lettuce.

  • Serve with mustard and mayonnaise or other desired condiments.
