Yo, it’s bacon time peoples! How about having a luau today? So have you seen that new movie Aloha? Ironically my sisters and I decided to watch it the night that I made these doggies. You may not believe that it was a coincidence, but seriously, these had nothing to do with me watching it. I thought it was pretty good but not like amazing. It’s the kind of movie that I probably will never watch again, or at least not sit through the whole thing again, but i did like it. Hands down, my favorite part was (if you’ve seen it you’ll know what I mean but this isn’t a spoiler) the end scene with the 2 guys and complete silence. We laughed so hard.
Yeah, super funny. I’d say it’s worth watching at least once if you like the cast. Another movie that the word aloha makes me think of is Miss Congeniality. I love when she’s asking how you know the difference between when it’s being used as a hello or a goodbye. I mean really, how do you know?
But now let’s talk about these dogses! I think just about every culture has a style of hot dogs. Here in Chile the typical is really interesting. They call it a completos and it comes smothered in smashed avocado (“palta” here), tomato chunks, and mountains of mayo.
That is what you will find all up and down this country, unless of course you come across a place that serves Peruvian style dogs. These aren’t really served as hot dogs at all though. They slice them thinly and fry them with french fries. Interesting right?
I’ve though of doing a Chilean completos for the blog but I haven’t for two different reasons. Firstly it’s not really a recipe as much as an idea, and secondly, I would never eat it that way. Honestly, the ridiculous amount of mayo they put on grosses me out. Okay, if I’m being completely honest here I might as well admit that bacon and hot dogs aren’t really my thing either. But I live with many people who are all over them and if I was going to eat a bacon wrapped dog I think this is how I’d do it. With all the good stuff on top.
I would love to have made these bad boys on the grill but unfortunately the chilly torrents of rain continue to fall outside so I had to do these on the stove. They totally work this way, you just lose out on a lot of your grilled flavor but we’re talking bacon here so I promise there is going to be plenty of flavor either way. Plus, this barbecue sauce is bringin it’s own set of cards to the table, so don’t worry if you’re in the same waterlogged boat as me. So just try em!
