Ingredients

Chimichurri Sauce

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!
