Sweet & Savory Breakfast Hot Dog

Have you ever had a McGriddle from McDonald’s? You know, those delicious breakfast pancake sandwiches that have like 5 gazillion calories.

Oh, you haven’t?

Yeah … I don’t eat McDonald’s either.

But if I did … the inspiration for this breakfast hot dog would have come from one of those pancake sandwiches.

A fried egg, sprinkled cheddar cheese and chives on top of a hot dog wrapped in turkey bacon, with cinnamon and sugar butter and maple syrup.

Happy Hot Dog Friday! Why wait until lunch?

Shopping List
All beef hot dogs
Eggs (one per hot dog)
Hot dog buns
Turkey bacon (one or two slices per hot dog)
Chives (just a sprinkle)
Shredded Cheddar (just a sprinkle)
Maple Syrup
Cinnamon and Sugar Butter (New in stores from Land O Lakes

Wrap one or two pieces of your turkey bacon around the hot dog and place it on the grill or on a grill pan on high heat. Cook until bacon is crispy and fully cooked.

Fry your egg sunny side up and sprinkle some of the chives on top.

Toast your hot dog bun and then spread a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar butter on the inside of the bun.

Place your bacon wrapped hot dog in the bun then sprinkle your cheddar and place the egg on top of the hot dog, then drizzle with maple syrup.

    Man that sounds great. Looks great too. That’s a very clever idea.

    I’ve had pizza for breakfast, but never a hot dog with my egg.

    Very clever indeed!

    Yum yum yum! We actually eat hotdogs for breakfast in the Philippines with our traditional breakfast rolls or sometimes even with fried rice.

    Michelle, you’ve got a thing for hot dogs 🙂 I’m noticing a pattern here! I’m in awe of all the creative ways that you do them up. This one is no exception. I love sweet and savory combinations; they totally get the taste buds going. I wonder if you salivate more because more buds are being activated? Hmm. Either way, I think you should enter into hot dog competitions!

    Just when I think your hot dogs can’t get any better…you BAM me with this sweet pancakey hot dog heaven. Wowsers! I’m totally bookmarking this because I don’t even have the option to pork out at McDonalds. There aren’t any in Cayman 🙂

    Oh and pine nuts?…grab your heart and die a little pricey here.
