Pigs In A Bacon Burger Blanket

Oh! Don't count the calories....Just enjoy!

Oh! Don’t count the calories….Just enjoy!

Got this idea from a restaurant that was cooking for Fox News one weekend awhile back and thought it would be a great idea for Super Bowl Sunday! They wrap a whole dog for their restaurant but I made them as a finger food….  They didn’t say what ingredients were used, just that it was a hot dog stuffed in burger meat and then wrapped in bacon. I thought to myself, okay, you put relish and mustard on top of the dogs and onion and dill pickle on top of your burger so why not put those ingredients into the burger meat?

For this recipe I will only use one bun size hot dog which will make 8 nice size balls and you can multiply that for desired amount you would like to make……….

Pigs In A Bacon Burger Blanket
  • 1 bun size hot dog, cut into 8 pieces
  • ¼ lb lean ground beef
  • 8 strips of bacon cut in half
  • 3 tbsp chopped onion, I used sweet
  • 2 large tbsp dill relish, you can also use sweet
  • 2 tbsp horseradish mustard
  1. Combine the burger meat with the onion, relish and mustard, mix well.
  2. Take a scoop of meat about the size of a rounded tablespoon and place 1 piece of the hot dog in center, surrounding the hot dog completely with the burger.
  3. Wrap one piece of bacon around one side and then another piece around the opposite side.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven on a shallow baking sheet, do not use a cookie sheet as the grease will run off into your oven.
  5. Cook until bacon is done, turning occasionally for about 20 minutes.

Creamy Beefy Noodle Casserole

Before our company came, I made this dish and it’s very similar to Josie’s Goulash which I posted many moons ago and even did another one similar to the original with spinach later on. I guess you all realize by now how much we enjoy our home-ground hamburger as it is one of the most versatile and cheapest beefs on the market, and we all know how much our grocery bills have skyrocketed here of late and they say beef is going up again, WOW!
Tonight one of our newest member to the family, great-granddaughter Jazmine, will be spending the night so granddaughter can have some quality time with her hubby celebrating her 24th birthday. Tomorrow we’ll be going to the flea market in hopes of entertaining Jazz since she has to be with us old fogies and so my computer will have a rest until next month. I’m hoping to come up with something easy and tasty for Sunday’s dinner and if it is not a disaster, will have a new post for us to share! So onto this creamy casserole…..
