Crunchy Kraut Dog
Thousand Island Dressing:
1/2 C. mayonnaise
2 T. chili sauce
1 T. minced onion
1 T. minced green bell pepper
1 T. minced dill pickle, sweet pickle or drained pickle relish
2 t. minced fresh parsley
3/4 C. sauerkraut
8 hot dog buns, preferably bakery-made
3 bacon slices, chopped and fried crisp
Prepare the dressing, combining the ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Fire up the grill, bringing the temperature to high.
In a medium bowl, mix together the sauerkraut with the dressing.
Grill the wieners for about 3 to 5 minutes over high heat until deeply browned, rolling to crisp all surfaces. Toast the buns on the edge of the grill if you wish.
Toss the bacon with the sauerkraut mixture. Place the dogs on the buns and the sauerkraut over the dogs.
Serves 4 to 8.
