Take-out Tuesday, Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs with Pineapple Salsa

Are hot dogs part of your summer menu plans?

Elevate a simple dog by stuffing it with Pineapple Salsa and wrapping it in bacon

I cooked these in the oven, for a simple supper last week, but you can definitely put them on your grill

These hot dogs only take minutes to prepare, and cooking them on a parchment lined baking sheet makes clean up a breeze

You can precook your bacon a little to ensure it gets crispy

Put dogs on a toasted bun and cover with additional salsa

Such a tasty summer meal!


Everything's better wrapped in bacon, and add pineapple salsa for an unforgettable dog!

  • hot dogs 1 or 2 per person
  • bacon strips 1 per hot dog
  • hot dog buns
  • chopped pineapple or pineapple tidbits 1/3 cup per hot dog
  • sweet onion sliced, 1/4 onion per hot dog
  • butter
  • olive oil


  • Cook bacon partially, to render some of the fat but stop cooking when it's still pliable to wrap around hot dogs
  • Saute onion in rendered bacon fat or in a little olive oil and butter over medium low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add pineapple and continue to cook on medium low for a few more minutes. Slice hot dogs in 1/2 vertically, leaving one side attached.
  • Open slit in hot dog and stuffed with some of the salsa. Wrap hot dog with a slice of bacon and secure each end with a toothpick.
  • Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes and check bacon for doneness. Continue to bake for 5-10 more minutes or until bacon is cooked. Time will depend on type of bacon and hot dogs used.
  • Toast buns. Place one hot dog in each bun and top with more salsa.
