How to Make Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs
First, have an adult make a campfire in the fire pit. Make sure to watch the fire closely. Never leave it unattended.
Second, using a fireplace poker adjust the firewood so the camp grill can sit over the logs correctly.
Third, open a package of hot dogs and wrap a strip of thin sliced bacon around each hot dog.
Next, place the hotdogs on a baking sheet until the campfire is ready.
Fourth, once the campfire is ready use non-stick cooking spray to spray the camp grill.
Next, place the hot dogs on the grate side of the grill, using cooking tongs.
Fifth, roast the hot dogs on the camp grill until the bacon is crispy or cooked to your liking.
Make sure to turn the hot dogs over several times to prevent them from burning. Last, remove the hot dogs from the camp grill and place them on a serving tray.
You can eat the bacon wrapped hot dogs on a bun with your favorite condiments like ketchup, mustard, cheese, and relish.
Or enjoy the hot dogs without a bun. Especially if you’re eating just keto-friendly foods.
