Yo, it’s bacon time peoples! How about having a luau today? Bacon Wrapped Aloha Dogs & Maui Barbecue Sauce (10) 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.

Bacon Wrapped Aloha Dogs & Maui Barbecue Sauce (5) 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?

They call it a completos and it comes smothered in smashed avocado (“palta” here), tomato chunks,  and mountains of mayo.

These aren’t really served as hot dogs at all though. They slice them thinly and fry them with french fries. Interesting right?

Bacon Wrapped Aloha Dogs & Maui Barbecue Sauce (6) 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.

Bacon Wrapped Aloha Dogs & Maui Barbecue Sauce (3) 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!

    I will totally join you in a bacon filled luau! I’m not a huge hot dog person either, but these look delicious! Loving the bacon (obviously), maui BBQ sauce, pineapple and avocado combination! These sound fab! I haven’t seen Aloha yet, but I do like the cast and am planning on checking it out! So thank you for not being one of those people who spills TMI and spoils it! 🙂 Cheers, girl!

      I know what you mean, it drives me crazy when people ruin a good movie by giving away the best part. Thanks, Cheyanne! Glad you love the dogs!
