Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs aka “Fancy Dogs”

  Mmm, sometimes you just need a good hot dog off the grill!!!!!  We have been without a kitchen since July, so we have grilling, crockpotting, and cooking in an electric skillet and toaster over. 

  I have been loving the Hebrew National Hot Dogs, they even go on sale once in a while!  I know hot dogs aren’t good for you, but at least this brand has no corn syrup, nitrates, or extra fake yucky stuff.
