Breakfast Hot Dogs

As prepared by Macheesmo,

When is it completely acceptable to have a hot dog for breakfast?


I’ll tell you when. Any time you plan on doing nothing but drinking beer and/or watching sports all day long. In other words, when tailgating.

We are deep in the heart of March Madness right now, generally seen as one of the best times of the year for sports lovers. It’s important that you eat a hearty breakfast to soak up some of those beers and also give you lots of energy to deal with the heartbreaking buzzer beater that will shred your brackets.

The breakfast hot dog is the breakfast of champions...watchers.

There’s not a lot to this dog – which is good because you have sports to watch, after all. The key is taking each hot dog and carefully wrapping it in a strip of thick cut bacon.

Bacon wrapped dogs

Lay these bacon wrapped beauties out on a baking sheet and bake them at 350 degrees until the bacon is nice and crispy, about 15-20 minutes.

These guys are ready to go!

Dogs cooked

While the dogs are cooking, you can prepare the other toppings for your breakfast. There are a ton of topping options for these guys, but I would keep it simple if I were you.

I just cut up some red onions and lettuce and had some mustard, ketchup, and hot sauce at the ready for people who wanted it.

Dog toppings

Of course, it wouldn’t be a breakfast dog without an egg. In this case, I highly recommend the lightly fried, over-easy egg.

Just add a small pad of butter to a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once the butter is melted and hot, crack in as many eggs as you need.

Cook them for about two minutes on the first side and then give them a careful flip. Just 15 seconds of cooking on the second side and then kill the heat.

The goal, of course, is to cook the whites of the eggs, but leave the yolk runny so as you bite into it. It makes a delicious sauce!

Eggs cooked

The only other recommendation here is to lightly toast your hot dog buns. I do this by laying them out on a sheet pan and baking them for a few minutes while my dogs finish cooking.

Then just top each bun with an over easy egg.

Eggs in bun

You can let people make their own, just like a normal dog. I recommend piling on a few toppings and giving it a good drizzle of hot sauce.

When the egg breaks and the yolk runs all over the place, it’s messy. But it’s also delicious.

So fry up a few of these, crack open some beers, and get ready for some March Madness!

Nick believes that a single over-easy egg can change almost any meal into something wonderful. Be sure to check out his blog, Macheesmo, and follow him on his Tablespoon profile.
