Circus Hot Dogs
Who knows how Circus Hot Dogs got their name? But a hot dog wrapped in bacon can’t be anything but fun. And why not give your tube steaks a bona fide southern spin. Wrap them in bacon and top them with pimento cheese — hot diggity dog!
FOR THE PIMENTO CHEESE, PURÉE:
FOR THE HOT DOGS, WRAP:
Use regular, center-cut bacon here — thick slices won’t cook through on the grill.
Preheat grill to medium. Brush grill grate with oil.
For the pimento cheese, purée Cheddar, mayonnaise, and cream cheese in a food processor; add pimentos and pulse to combine. Season pimento cheese with Tabasco.
For the hot dogs, wrap bacon around hot dogs and secure each end with toothpicks. Grill hot dogs until bacon is crisp; remove toothpicks before serving. Grill buns until lightly toasted, 1 minute.
Serve hot dogs in buns with romaine and pimento cheese.
Per hot dog with 2 Tbsp. pimento cheese
