Everyone loves summertime BBQ, but we always want to jazz it up a little.  When I was a young kid I always watched The Cosby Show and one of my favorite episodes was when Dr. Huxtable’s son broke up with his girl friend and Dr. Huxtable made his favorite dish to cheer him up.  It was the bacon burger dog.  The never showed it but somehow years later standing over the grill on a hot summer day it came back to me.  I have been making my version at bbqs ever since.


1 – 6 to 8oz chuck burger patty
2 slices American cheese
4 slices crispy bacon
1 hot dog – sliced in half vertically then horizontally
3 slices ripe avocado
Lettuce leaves
1 tbsp BBQ sauce or ketchup and mustard mixed
1 fresh hamburger bun


It’s easy, just assemble the burger.  Sauce on the bottom, then the burger, top with sliced hotdog and avocado.  On the other half, more sauce, lettuce and bacon.   Put it together and Enjoy!!
