No surprise here, we like hotdogs in this house, and no, it doesn't really matter to us what they are made of. We don't care and we don't want to know. In all truth knowing probably wouldn't change our minds. We like em and we like treating ourselves to one every now and again.
When I was a child we used to be able to buy "Whistle Dogs" at the A&W . . . or I guess I should say we dreamt about having "Whistle Dogs" at the A&W. There was no A&W near us so it was more a dream than a reality. The closest one was about 30 miles away, so not someplace we ever got to . . .
There is one in the local mall back home now and its a pretty popular place. I don't know if "Whistle Dogs" are still on the menu or not. Its been a while . . .
If you are from the UK, you are probably scratching your head and thinking "Whistle Dog?" I'll put you out of your misery. Its a hot dog/frankfurter wrapped in streaky bacon and grilled.
This dog knocks the "Whistle Dog" out of the ball park . . . no pun intended. Not only is it wrapped in bacon before grilling, but its also soaked in BBQ sauce first . . . popped into a Brioche bun, and then topped with homemade Onion Strings. To. Die. For. I served it with Sweet Potato Wedges, coz sweet potatoes are healthy, dontcha know!
