Step right up. I’ve got your Week 2 Hot Dog Recipe right here: the “Southern Comfort” Bacon Hot Dog with Southern Slaw and Beans. This one is not to be missed.
Last week we kicked off July’s “Dog Days of Summer” series with an amazing Green Chile Mole Dog. Every Friday in July I’ll be sharing an easy and intriguing hot dog recipe for your summer get-togethers. If you missed the Mole Dog last week, make sure to check it out!
I’ve lived in the south for over 8 years now and have learned a thing or two about real southern cooking.
For instance, butter or bacon (grease) are essential ingredients in nearly every dish. A good cast iron skillet is the endall kitchen tool. So much so, well-seasoned skillets are often passed down through generations like priceless family jewels. I’ve also learned a rule of thumb in southern cuisine, “If it’s not sweet, it better be spicy.”
Following these southern cooking “rules” has served me well.
So for this week’s hot dog recipe I thought it would be fun to pile the dogs with some of my favorite southern flavors. This hot dog recipe is loaded with sweet and spicy baked beans, cool southern slaw, tangy pickled okra, and of course, a strip of crispy bacon.
These bacon hot dogs were a huge hit! It just goes to show, we could all use a little “southern comfort” every now and again.
