Hot Dog Upgrade! Heres Your Victory Dogs

4 hot dogs or brats
4 hot dog buns
bacon (at least as many slices as there are sausages)
1 sweet onion, sliced
1/2 red pepper, julienned
1/2 yellow pepper, julienned
2 jalapenos, de-seeded and julienned
ketchup, mustard, mayo, relish, hot sauce, etc.


Take your hot dogs or sausages and wrap them each with a slice of bacon, starting at one end and moving down in a spiral. Try to space it evenly along the length of the dog. Get a big heavy-bottomed skillet (if you have cast-iron, now is the time to bust it out), and put it on medium-low heat. Get your dogs in there and cook them until the bacon is nice and crispy, turning them often to make sure you get all sides evenly. Stash them in a warm oven until ready to serve. Throw the julienned veggies into the same pan right into all that delicious bacon grease and turn it up to medium. Once they are soft, about 10-15 minutes, turn the pan off and remove from heat. Grab your bun (toasted if you like), put a dog in, top with veggies and add any other condiments as you see fit. Enjoy the taste of victory.
