These Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese Dogs are a fun lunch or dinner dish.
If you are tired of boring old hot dogs you need to try these.
They would make a great party food too!
We ate hot dogs from the grill at least once a week during the summer but since the colder weather set in I haven’t made them in awhile.
I decided to cook inside on the stove as it’s a little chilly outside and I wanted to try something new instead of the traditional hot dog toppings.

I made some macaroni and cheese from scratch and added real bacon bits at the end for flavour.
I used the macaroni to top some pan fried hot dogs.
I started by putting some macaroni on to boil and frying up some wieners in a pan while the macaroni was cooking.
For my cheese sauce I started by bringing some 10% cream to a boil and adding in some cornstarch to thicken it.
I reduced the heat and stirred in some minced garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper then left it to simmer.
While the sauce was simmering I toasted up my hot dog buns.
To finish up the sauce I stirred in some grated marble cheese, bacon bits and margarine.
Then I added the cooked macaroni to the sauce and stirred it until it was completely coated.
Then I put all the wieners on to buns and topped the with some macaroni and cheese.
This meal was such a hit my husband was asking me to make it again a couple days later.
