Spiral-cut Rollers with Bacon and Onion

"What a great way to step-up your hot dog game for the next tailgate party!"

Makes: 12 rollers


4 pieces short-cut bacon, thickly diced

1 onion diced

12 cocktail franks

12 roller buns of your choice

Oil, for frying

Note: Short-cut bacon is taken from the loin section of the pig and is less fatty than middle bacon.

Fry the diced bacon until crispy. Set aside on some paper towel, and then, in the same pan, cook the onion until it is golden brown.

Spiral-cut the franks and fry them on a hot barbecue or in a frying pan with a little oil.

Cut the roller buns lengthwise. Add the cooked franks to the roller bun, and then sprinkle the bacon and diced onion into the spiral cuts. Add your favorite toppings, sauce and mustard.
