Gluten-Free Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs

Right in time for the big game, you will never look at another hot dog the same way again! Now, if you are gluten-free by necessity, be sure to read all labels and make sure you get a brand of hot dogs that are labeled “Gluten-free.” There are quite a few brands that are deemed “safe.” The following brands are gluten-free (however, you should ALWAYS read the labels before purchasing, as manufacturers can change their ingredients:) Ball Park, Oscar Mayer, Nathan’s, Boar’s Head, and Applegate Farms (Applegate Farms is certified organic, so you can guarantee sulfite and MSG-free.) I stick to all beef hot dogs to insure no fillers, but feel free to use what you know/prefer.


Equipment: Aluminum Foil, Toothpicks, (May use Grill-though not necessary)

Gluten-Free Bacon



  1. Preheat oven/grill to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice center of hot dogs, and stuff with shredded cheese.
  3. Wrap with bacon from one end, spiraling around hot dog, until you reach other end, secure with toothpicks.
  4. Cover cookie sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, then raise oven to broil, and cook for 5-8 more minutes keeping a close eye on bacon until crispy.
  6. Serve on Gluten-free bun, or on its own.
