Take Back Opening Day With Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs

Are you a baseball fan? If so, you may remember when Opening Day (unofficial national afternoon off) was a HUGE deal.

These days, it seems as if this special day has been long forgotten. Perhaps it was due to the takeover social media or life just moving too fast. Whatever the reason, Kingsford and legend catcher Johnny Bench want to take back Opening Day.


In honor of Opening Day, I wanted to share one of my favorite hot dog recipes we have here on Mom Spark, which is perfect for whipping up on the first day of baseball season!

It’s wrapped in bacon. It’s filled with cheese. It’s covered in bbq sauce. Friends, you’re going to love this hot dog.
