Hawaiian Hot Dog for Grandpa

Aloha! Today, is an awesome day.

It’s Hot Dog Friday, and  we have been told to wear beach clothes at work (!!!) and  there is a kiddie pool set up in the conference room (no joke).

But most importantly … today is my grandpa’s birthday.  This Hawaiian hot dog,  with bacon,  pineapple, chives and hoisen sauce is for you Poppy.

Did your grandpa buy you 10lb. containers of gummy bears from BJ’s Wholesale Club when you were a kid? Mine did.

Did your grandpa take you to buy your prom dress and even pick out the rhinestone heels to match? Mine did.

Does your grandpa read your food blog and send it to all of his friends and ask them to click on everything to increase your traffic? Mine does. 🙂

Happy Birthday Poppy. You are truly loved. (Especially because you like hot dogs just as much as I do)

Shopping List  (Adapted from Food Network’s Polynesian Dog)

All beef hot dogs
Hot dog buns
Pineapple chunks
Hoisen sauce

While you are grilling your hot dog, dice your pineapple chunks, and chives into smaller pieces.

Crisp up your bacon in the microwave, patting off the excess grease with a paper towel. When the bacon is cooked, rough chop it into smaller pieces as well.

Place your grilled hot dog in the bun and spoon on your hoisen sauce. Sprinkle on your bacon bits, then spoon on a little more hoisen. Place your pineapples on top and the chives last.

    YUM! Shelby should read this because she’s a hot dog freak but…she might be the kind that will only put ketchup on hers. So lame!

    Your poppy sounds like the absolute coolest! And since he’s the inspiration behind this super yummy hotdog, he gets a double ‘cool’ rating 🙂

    My grandpa would stock the house with soda and ice cream and snappy (natural-casing) hot-dogs when we’d come to visit. I loved it! Pineapple and bacon on a hot dog sounds too good!

    Sounds yum, but have ya tried wrapping the hot dog in the bacon securing with toothpicks and BBQ together? Do it all the time for chili dogs will def have to try the Hawaiian version.
