Taking a Bite Outta Guy Fieri's Hot Wieners

In honor of Guy Fieri's visit this Tuesday, June 7, with his Guy Fieri Road Show, I dug through the Food Network Top 100 Guy Fieri recipes and found a gem from Guy's Big Bite: Hot Wieners Rhode Island Style.

Now, to us non-Rhode Islanders (or would it be non-Rhodies?) the recipe reads a lot like a plain ol' chili dog. Well, actually a lazy man's chili dog, since the spiced meat in question cooks in a half-hour on the stove rather than the hours most traditional chilis take. But with the help of fellow blogger Jonathan McNamara, The Virgin devised an ingenious plan to kick things up a notch: wrap the dog in bacon and then cover it with chili. Sort of a "Rhode Island meets Sonoran" dog.

 

Find out how it's done after the jump.
