This Bourbon Onion Bacon Dog is sinfully good! A perfectly grilled snappy skin hot dog, covered with bourbon glazed onions and bacon topping is like heaven in your mouth. Finish off your hot dog with some thin slices of jalapeno pepper and you have that complete sweet heat deal going on!
Melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat in skillet. Add onion and cook until onions begin to brown.
Add 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and stir into onions. Turn heat up and cook until onions begin to sizzle. Add bourbon (carefully!) to pan. This will cause the onions to bubble furiously. With caution, stir onions for about 1 minute while the bourbon cooks down and glazes the onions. Remove from heat.
Serve onions over cooked hot dogs in buns and sprinkle with bacon and jalapeno slices (if using).
