Dirty Mummy Baconstein Dogs

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and set an oven safe cooling rack in the pan.
  3. Place the wooden toothpicks in enough water to cover them. Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes.
  4. With a knife, begin making a single spiral cut (about 1 inch apart) about 1/4” deep all the way down the hot down. Turn the hot dog away from you, as you go. If it helps, place a long skewer lengthways down the center of the hotdog. Place the knife at one end of the hotdog and on an angle cut down and around the hotdog, turning it as you cut down along the skewer. This takes a little bit of practice but you got this!
  5. Next take thin strips of the string cheese and press them into the spiral cuts starting from the top to the bottom.
  6. Lastly, grab one piece of bacon and wrap it up and over one end of the hotdog winding it down the hotdog. Grab a second piece and slightly overlap the first piece and continue wrapping down to the bottom of the hot dog cutting off any excess.
  7. Carefully remove the skewer down the middle of the dog (provided you used one).
  8. Next take 2-3 toothpicks and place one at each end of the hotdog securing the bacon down. If needed place the third one where the 2 pieces of bacon join.
  9. Repeat these steps for the remaining dogs.
  10. Place all of the hotdogs on the cooling rack lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping over and baking for another 15 minutes.
  11. Remove from the pan from oven and place on broil.
  12. Baste the tops of the dogs with bbq sauce and broil for 1-2 minutes or until the sauce is caramelized and bubbly.
  13. Remove from the oven, flip the dogs over, baste with more bbq sauce and broil for 1-2 minutes.
  14. When done, remove from the oven, carefully remove the toothpicks (watch they will be hot) and enjoy your Dirty Mummy Baconstein Dogs!

Baby Batty Vampire Dogs

  1. Bake the corn dogs per the package instructions.
  2. When the corn dogs are done, remove them from the oven and while they are still warm, take one point of the tortilla chip and insert it into the side of the corn dog. Repeat with another chip on the other side to form the ‘wings’.
  3. Using a squirt bottle (or toothpick) dab on 2 eyes. If you want to make ‘teenager’ vampire dogs, add on small teeth with mayo.
