Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4 People
- 2 cup italian parsley about 1 bunch without stems
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- 1/4 cup fresh oregano
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 3 medium garlic cloves
- 1/2 whole lemon
Hot Dog with Fries
- 4 bun-sized hot dog
- 4 whole french rolls
- 4 strips bacon
- 1/2 lb Frozen French Fries Shoestring or crispy seasoned works well
Preheat your oven to the temperature needed to cook your french fries (probably 400 or 450). In a food processor combine all your chimichurri sauce ingredients, squeezing lemon juice into the food processor.
Pulse for about 5 seconds about 10-15 times until you get a smooth consistency with large bits of cilantro and parsely; set aside. Your fries will be ready to put into the oven at this point.
Wrap your hot dogs with bacon. I find patting the hot dogs dry helps to keep the bacon to stick, using a toothpick on the ends to keep the bacon from unraveling helps too!
Grill at around 250-300 so that there's enough heat to cook the bacon but not burn the hot dog. Should take about 15-20 minutes. Remember to keep an eye on your fries too!
Place the hotdog in a toasted bun (you can put other condiments on if you like top) place a handful of fries and a liberal amount of chimichurri sauce on top. Take a big bite and enjoy!
