I was asleep the other night and woke up in a cold sweat. FRANKINBURGER!!!! This creature came to me in a dream and demanded to be made a reality. FRANKINBURGER!!! When asked the age-old question, the decision every man must make at a BBQ, there is a new answer. FRANKINBURGER!!!!! I really did come up with this in the middle of the night, but the next day I googled burgerdog and I did find that someone had already made one. Oh well, it's still a fun post. And it came out pretty good. Mandi was a disbeliever, but upon first bite she changed her mind. This tastes EXACTLY how you would think. Like taking a bite of a bacon cheeseburger, and a hot dog at the same time. FRANKINBURGER!!!!!! It's a hot dog dressed up like a burger for Halloween! FRANKINBURGER!!!!

Microwave the bacon for a minute before wrapping. Bacon takes a while to cook so this will help the process. I would have normally wrapped these in paper towels, but I didn't have any.

Yep, it's just what you think. Wrap the dog in beef. Make it a nice thin layer so you aren't overpowering the hot dog.

I tended to these pretty closely, turning them slightly every minute or 2 and making sure the bacon was secure. An outdoor grill would work well too, possibly better.


This is my usual hot dog toppings. You could do lettuce or stuff like that, but I think this was perfect. Note that this is not relish, but rather cut up pickles. I hate relish. Also note that this is boxed macaroni and cheese. Awesome. Put some siracha on your mac and cheese next time and you will be happy. To everyone who thinks i'm a food snob, I eat stuff like this all the time, I just don't usually make a post out of it!

Goodbye Frankinburger.


this looks like something that could definitely happen at our next 'sportspartybrofest', and at perfect timing too with all 4 of bostons teams in some stage of there season!
if only I could deep fry them... do i hear chili cheese bacon corn dog burger fries?

the first paragraph makes me think.... "WACKY WAVING INFLATABLE ARM-FLAILING TUBE MAN!!"

Awesome! Although my topping would be caramelized onions and BBQ sauce.

It is just regular old mac and cheese from a box haha. i put it up for 2 reasons. 1, cause people think im a food snob and are afraid to invite me over sometimes thinking i will hate whatever they make. this is supposed to show I like all foods. and 2. to say that siracha tastes delicious on mac and cheese. thats what that red stuff is.

It was 93+ degrees in salem today, and the celtics are playing the bulls in the playoffs. Everyone was supposed to bring something to grill. Next thing I know we have ground beef, hot dogs and bacon = FRANKINBURGERS all a round. I believe a direct quote from one of the boys tonight was "that was one of the top 3 greatest things I ever put in my mouth". I didn't ask what the other 2 were.
