Cook up bacon wrapped hog dogs – Sonoran hot dogs – while enjoying a family game night of Mexican Train Dominoes this summer!
It wouldn’t be summer around here without many evenings playing Mexican train dominoes. I can’t remember where I even learned to play Mexican train dominoes, but it is hands down my favorite game ever. The player with the lowest score wins and we keep up a tally of points all summer long.
Game night (or sometimes afternoon!) always features some kind of fun food. If it’s after dinner, I’ll make homemade cookies for our game playing. But lately we’ve been playing games during the hot afternoons and early evenings so I decided to create a fun Mexican train meal to go along with our game playing.
I’ve been eyeing Sonoran hot dogs for a long time. Sonoran hot dogs originated in Tucson, Arizona and are basically a hot dog cooked with bacon wrapped around it. The hot dog is then served on a Mexican style roll and topped with beans, avocado, salsa, cheese and other taco type of toppings. I am basically in it for the bacon wrapped around the hot dog. I picked up a huge pack of Bar-S bun length hot dogs and Bar-S bacon to surprise my family with a fun Mexican train inspired meal.
These hot dogs are pretty easy to make. I had my doubts that the bacon would actually cook. Start by wrapping each hot dog with a slice of bacon.
The Bar-S bacon slices fit perfectly on the Bar-S bun length hot dogs. Wrap up as many hot dogs as you want to cook up. I cooked the bacon wrapped hot dogs on a cast iron griddle on my stove, but I forgot about the amount of grease that the bacon creates. A frying pan would work well.
Just keep rolling the hot dogs until the bacon is cooked evenly on all sides. I like my bacon well done so I let them get nice and toasty.
Sonoran hot dogs are traditionally served on a big bun with loads of toppings, but I was going for simple. So we used regular hot dog buns and the kids went plain.
I added salsa and avocado to the hot dogs for the adults. And I’ve got to say that whoever thought to wrap a hot dog in bacon is a genius! These hot dogs were some of the best I’ve ever eaten.
