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.
