Low Calorie, Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs (2 ingredients)




Most of us love hot dogs. I know I do. But they’re usually so unhealthy. That’s why I was so happy to discover a 97% fat free hot dog that’s low carb, gluten free and only 45 calories!  They actually taste pretty good. Now take this skinny hot dog and wrap it in a healthier bacon….Amazingly good. Everything is better with bacon! Each has 75 calories, 3 grams of fat and just 1 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints.  Serve on a plate with mustard on the side for dipping, if desired. You can easily eat 2 or add to a bun and serve with your favorite toppings.

This is one of my favorite brand of bacon. It’s called Applegate Farms Natural Sunday Bacon. Its low in fat and calories, uncured and contains no nitrites! Many supermarkets carry this brand. I bought it at Vons/Safeway and Whole Foods. Here’s the link to their website:http://www.applegate.com/products/natural-sunday-bacon
