Ingredients

4 hot dogs with about 40 calories and 1g fat or less each

4 slices turkey bacon or center-cut bacon

1 cup sliced onion

1 cup sliced red bell pepper

1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and sliced into strips (not rings)

2 tbsp. light mayonnaise

4 light hot dog buns (80 calories each)

4 tsp. yellow mustard

Directions

Carefully break 4 toothpicks in half. Wrap each hot dog in a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick half at each end. Set aside.

Bring a large skillet or grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove.

Add onion, bell pepper, and jalapeño pepper and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Remove from the skillet/pan and set aside.

Remove the skillet/pan from heat, re-spray, and bring to medium heat. Add bacon-wrapped hot dogs and cook until bacon is crisp and fully cooked and hot dogs are heated through, about 6 minutes, rotating the hot dogs several times to evenly cook the bacon. Set aside.

Evenly spread mayo inside the buns. Remove toothpicks from the hot dogs and place a bacon-wrapped dog in each bun. Top each dog with 1 tsp. of mustard.

Evenly distribute veggie mixture among the dogs. Eat up!
