Emeril is a hack.
Half-assed wussie imitation of a Whistle Pig.
Anything stuffed with cheese and wrapped with bacon can’t be all bad ! [:D]
That sounds fairly disgusting to me. Why hide a great hot dog in bacon and cheddar anyway?
Must have been a 50s thing. My mom made them also, cooked in the oven. What memories!
I have made these for years, as did my Mother before I learned to cook.I agree broiling is best…
These have been a staple in Chicago corner "Snack" shops usually owned by Greeks. These places usually had several booths as well as counter service. Waitress took order and served. Paid at the cash register in front.
Difference the dog is quickly deep fried and called a "Francheeze"
I got returned for "not enough postage!"–You got further than I did, SBear!
I posted myself once, and was mailed to the Aleutians.
the hubster said
"leave off the ketchup and i’ll eat it..
doesn’t come close to a chicago dog though."
i wish he’d post himself.
My mom used to make these when I was a kid. She would cook them in the broiler, though. Very Good!!! Yummy!![:D]
With the bacon, I’d go all meat..
Ahh. I didn’t think of that. What kind of chili sauce would you recommend?
Emeril must be slacking in his old age. Seems he forgot the chili sauce..
I watched Emeril last night which was dedicated to hot dog recipes. One that stood out, albeit not very healthy, was a recipe for stuffed hot dogs. Here is the recipe. I think I’ll try it this weekend.
Stuffed Dogs Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2006
8 kosher-style hot dogs
3/4 cup grated Cheddar
8 strips smoked bacon
8 hot dog buns
Preheat a griddle to medium heat. Use a paring knife to slice each hot dog almost completely through the middle lengthwise, leaving the ends still attached but forming a long lengthwise pocket. Place 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cheese in each of the hot dogs. Wrap each hot dog with 1 slice of the bacon, overlapping the bacon in a spiral fashion. Place the hot dogs on the griddle, cheese side up, and cook for 3 minutes. Turn the hot dogs on one of its sides and cook for another 3 minutes. Turn the hot dog on the second side and cook another 3 minutes. Finally, turn the hot dogs cheese side down and cook for a final 3 minutes. To serve, place the hot dogs in the buns and serve with the relish, ketchup and mustard.
