Bourbon Onion Bacon Dog

This week the Sunday Supper Tastemakers are celebrating National Hot Dog Month! We decided that since serving hamburgers is synchronous with hot dogs, and are sharing our favorite recipes for juicy burgers and dogs this week! July 23 (yesterday!) was National Hot Dog Day, so if you missed the day, at least you can know you haven’t missed the month yet and can still get your dog on!

A big thanks to Christie of A Kitchen Hoors Adventures for hosting this week’s event!

Bourbon Onion Bacon Dog

As a child, when I ate a hotdog, I had to have ketchup on it. As I have grown up, I have moved away from ketchup and on to bourbon and bacon! I love an onion topping. The pushcart onions are one of my favorites, but I think these bourbon caramelized onions have become my very favorite!

Ball Park Finest Jalapeno Cheddar Hot Dogs

The hotdog you eat makes all the difference also. You want a good quality hot dog. We prefer Ballpark Finest or Hofmann Hots. Something with a lot of flavor and a little snap when you bite into it!

Bourbon Bacon Jalapeno Dog

Bourbon, butter, and bacon. The 3 essential B’s! Sinful, delicious, and oh so irresistible!

Bourbon Bacon Jalapeno Dog

When I make caramelized my onions, I sprinkle a little bit of brown sugar on top to give them a little sweeter flavor. Once they are caramelized, I deglazed my pan with the bourbon. Oh sweet heaven of smells! Top your dog with the onions and a few thin slices of jalapeno for heat. I’m all about that sweet heat so this was amazing for me!
