Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Hot Dogs

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon ketchup
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
4 large hot dogs, knockwurst or kielbasa
1/2 ounce cheddar cheese cut into long sticks
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 cup chilled sauerkraut, drained and rough chopped
4 slices uncooked bacon
Vegetable oil for coating grill
4 long hot dog buns or small baguettes

Directions:
Prepare grill for direct medium heat. Combine ketchup and mustard in small bowl. In a separate bowl, mix sauerkraut with chopped onion and set aside. Slice open hot dogs lengthwise, down the center, forming a deep pocket in each but not cutting through. Coat the insides with ketchup/mustard mixture.

Place a strip of cheese deep within pocket of each hot dog. Top with sauerkraut and onion. Enclose any cheese at the ends in sauerkraut also or it will drip out while grilling.

Wrap a strip of bacon around each stuffed hot dog securing with toothpicks at each end. Make sure to wrap tightly so stuffing stays in, but not so tight that when hot dog cooks and expands it will tear the bacon.

Coat grill with vegetable oil so hot dogs won’t stick. Place hot dogs on grill, stuffed side down. Grill for 2 minutes until bacon on that side is cooked, turn the hot dogs a quarter turn and grill for two more minutes. Keep turning and grilling until bacon is completely cooked, covering grill for more uniform cooking.
Grill hot dog buns or baguettes. Remove toothpicks from hot dogs and serve.

This was a childhood favorite at our house in Upstate NY. Easy to prepare, cooks in no time using the electric oven broiler and always delicious. Brings back good memories.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
