Mets’ Bases Loaded Pita Dog

Ingredients:

  • 4 low-carb pitas (Joseph’s Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pita Bread)
  • 8 Nathan’s Beef Franks
  • 1 lb Applewood Smoked Bacon, chopped and fried (about 3/4 cup)
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • Cheddar Cheese Fondue OR Easy Cheddar Cheese Sauce (Below)
Easy Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 TBSP cream cheese
  • 2 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • 2 TBSP melted butter
  • 1/8 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp worcester sauce
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions:

Place hotdogs to frying pan. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover and cook hotdogs on medium heat for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding more water if it cooks off before the time is up. Drain off remaining water, and add 2 tbsp butter. Fry hotdogs until golden brown. To make cheese sauce, microwave cream cheese, cheddar cheese, heavy whipping cream, and 2 TBSP butter in a microwave safe bowl until cheese is melted (stirring every 15 seconds). Stir in mustard powder, worcester sauce, garlic, and black pepper. Assemble hotdogs by slicing pitas in half and filling each half with one hotdog, cheese sauce, fried bacon pieces, and green onions. Serves 8.
