Ingredients

4 hot dogs with about 40 calories and 1g fat or less each

4 slices turkey bacon or center-cut bacon

1 cup sliced onion

1 cup sliced red bell pepper

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced into strips (not rings)

2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise

4 light hot dog buns

4 teaspoons yellow mustard

Directions

  1. Carefully break 4 toothpicks in half. Wrap each hot dog in a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick half at each end. Set aside.
  2. Bring a large skillet or grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove.
  3. Add onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Remove from the skillet/pan and set aside.
  4. Remove the skillet/pan from heat, re-spray, and bring to medium heat. Add bacon-wrapped hot dogs and cook until bacon is crisp and fully cooked and hot dogs are heated through, about 6 minutes, rotating the hot dogs several times to evenly cook the bacon. Set aside.
  5. Evenly spread mayo inside the buns. Remove toothpicks from the hot dogs and place a bacon-wrapped dog in each bun. Top each dog with a teaspoon of mustard.
  6. Evenly distribute veggie mixture among the dogs. Eat up!
