A perfect Saturday snack


On my trip to Baltimore last week, I tuned in to the free tv shows that Southwest offers on their Wi-Fi enabled flights.  I tuned in to the Food Network and discovered a new show I had never seen before - Big Daddy's House.  I simply fell in love!

Chef Aaron McCargo Jr.'s dream came true when he won Season 4 of Food Network Star. His show, Big Daddy's House, was a part of the grand prize.  The thing I adore about Aaron and this show is that is models a positive Black male who is passionate about his family and providing fun meals for his kids.  Plus he's a big guy with a big personality - not something you normally find when flipping pass the Food Network.

The show I watch in flight featured Elvis style peanut butter, banana, and honey pancakes, these awesome cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped hot dogs, and a homemade macaroni and cheese that I still have to try!

This past lazy Saturday while hanging out with Munchkin, I decided to try Aaron's take on the hot dog with my own twist.  I split four turkey hot dogs, added cheddar cheese, and wrapped in turkey bacon.  I set the oven to 300 and baked for about 30-40 minutes.

Once they were done, I took them in the backyard with Munchkin - and they are definitely Munchkin approved.  Nothing fancy - just yummy.  

Even as I sit here writing this post, Munchkin saw the picture and said "mom, I liked those".  Perfect for a Saturday afternoon when you'd rather be outside playing than in the kitchen cooking!

Let me know what's your favorite way to serve up a hot dog.  Have you seen Big Daddy's House on the Food network?
