BLT Hot Dogs

Oh, you didn’t know? BLT meets hot dog and falls in love. The result is classic BLT garnish laying proudly on a grilled hot dog, held together with a squishy bun. Fire up the grill! Thanks to Dempsters for sharing the recipe.

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Serves: 4


4 Dempster’s® Signature Classic Sausage Buns, or buns of your choosing
4 jumbo hot dogs
1/4 cup (60 mL) mayonnaise
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded ice berg lettuce
1/2 cup (125 mL) diced tomatoes
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped


Boil or barbecue hot dogs according to package directions. Assemble cooked hot dogs in buns with mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and chopped bacon.


Feeling cheesy? Add shredded cheese to BLT dog, if desired. Cheddar, Swiss or Monterey Jack are all good options. You can substitute iceberg lettuce for arugula if you want a bit more of a peppery bite.
