20140703-203311-73991102.jpg
Who doesn’t love crispy bacon on a hot dog, along with a toasted bun that’s topped off with a bit of coleslaw? The flavors and textures all come together to create a wonderful experience for your guests when you create this dish for them.

8 beef hotdogs or your favorite brats (I prefer the Johnsonville stadium brats because they are pre-cooked)
8 slices bacon
8 buns, toasted
1 recipe Jalapeño Coleslaw (recipe below)
Wrap each hotdog with a slice of bacon. Preheat grill or grill pan over medium heat and cook hotdogs until bacon is crispy. Serve hotdogs on buns topped with coleslaw. Eat at once.
Jalapeño Coleslaw
1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2-3 Tbs. light mayonnaise
1 Tbs. cider vinegar
juice and zest of 1 lime
1/4 – 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
12 – 16 oz. package coleslaw mix (the package vary in size depending on the grocer)
1 jalapeño, minced
1 cup shredded carrots
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
To prepare coleslaw, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, and red pepper flakes in a mixing bowl; add coleslaw mix, jalapeño, carrots and bell pepper, tossing to coat. Season to taste with kosher salt and black pepper, as desired. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
