I’m not much of a hot dog eater, but having small children forces me to make them from time to time.

I don’t really make boring dogs in our house, instead I like to invent different types of ingredients to make them fun and more tolerable for me (although my kids are very happy with the same ketchup and mustard!).

I love the idea of ​​having a combination of sweet, spicy, and salty, so I thought of these Hawaiian Hot Dogs!

If I were a gamer, I bet they don’t necessarily eat stuff like this in Hawaii, but come join me here!

These hot dogs are wrapped in bacon and grilled (carefully, you’ll want to see those bacon grease flames!) then topped with a spicy pineapple sauce. Mayonnaise or barbecue sauce would be great dressings to add if you’d like, even if they’re just as good without it!

Even if you’re not a huge fan of hot dogs like I am, you’re going to love this recipe, I guarantee it. It’s so tasty and the hot dogs turn out so crispy! To a good time!

Hawaiian Hot Dogs: Ingredients and Equipment

For this Hawaiian hot dog recipe, you will need…

ingredients

  • Hot Dogs and Hot Dog Buns: Get your favorite for these Hawaiian dogs!
  • Bacon: You will be wrapping hotdogs in these. Adds a little crunch and lots of flavors!
  • Pineapple, red onion, jalapeno, lime juice, and cilantro – these combine to make the Hawaiian Pineapple Sauce, which you will use to season the sausages. It’s so, so good, all of you!

Hawaiian Hot Dogs: Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to cook the bacon before I wrap the hot dog in it?

No, you will cook them while they are on the grill. However, I have had some people partially cook them ahead of time for extra crispiness! Your turn!

Is coriander necessary?

If you really hate it, you can leave it out. I know it is very unpleasant for some people. (Apparently this is a genetic thing?) BUT…it really helps to chill the sauce a bit if you’re sensitive to heat.

What kind of hot dog sandwiches do you recommend?

Wear your favourite, you really can’t go wrong here. BUT, I personally really like any hotdog bun that has a hint of sweetness when it comes to Hawaiian hotdogs. If you have Hawaiian hot dog buns or potato buns at your store, get them!

Do I have to cook the pineapple before putting it in the sauce?

Not at all, although I have been told that cooked/roasted pineapple tastes just as delicious in the sauce as fresh, raw pineapple. Try it!

How long does it take to make Hawaiian hot dogs?

Only 30 minutes! It will take 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook.

How many Hawaiian hot dogs does this recipe make?

8 servings / 8 dogs! Probably enough for a family barbecue, though if you need more, the recipe is easily doubled.
