Bringing Back The Bagel Dog

I was flipping through Martha Stewart Living the other day and came across a recipe for an oldie but goodie - the Bagel Dog. I can't believe I'd almost forgotten about this fan favorite! What an underrated treat!

As kids, on the days my Dad directed our trips to Costco, we stocked up on all kinds of less-than-healthy but oh-so-yummy goodies like...bagel dogs. There's just something about it, the dog alone might not inspire such nostalgia, but the dog in a blanket = pure deliciousness!

So...I've decided to pay tribute to all those fun and junk-food filled Costco trips with Dad, I'm reviving the bagel dog this summer! Watch out - first BBQ at my place, we'll be server burgers + bagel dogs. Admit it, you're kind of excited...

my pregnancy cravings drove me straight to Einstein bagels monthly to snack on a bagel dog - with oodles of ketchup. i'm not proud - but man they were sooo good.

I would totally love to come to your bbq and partake in the bagel dog goodness. I know they are wildly unhealthy, but, you know what? Everything in moderation, right? One bagel dog won't kill me. The fifty I probably consumed during my days working retail at the mall certainly didn't! I used to get them from Wetzel's Pretzels all of the time for lunch/dinner. Ahhh... The life of a teenager!

Guilty as charged! We were always eating corndogs...these sound much better.
