With a name like Yum Dogs, it's almost impossible not to get excited for dinner -- for kids and adults alike. These bacon-wrapped hot dogs are a big upgrade from the ballpark, with a bean sprout slaw that adds a fresh crunch, as good with the main attraction as it is on its own. A side of super-easy Slap Fries rounds out the classic combo. Just don't plan on leftovers.

The Grocery List

Serves about 4

6 hot dogs (quality counts)
6 slices bacon
6 hot dog buns
4 scallions
1 pound bean sprouts
1 large carrot
1 jalapeno
1 small red onion
4 medium potatoes
1/2 cup chopped, roasted, salted peanuts
1/2 rough chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon tumeric powder
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder

We're guessing you have salt, black pepper, mayonnaise, vinegar, olive oil, chili powder, oregano, and sugar -- if not, you'll be needing those too!

The Plan

1. Clean and salt the bean sprouts -- they'll need to drain for at least 30 minutes.

2. While you wait for the bean sprouts, slice, season and start roasting the potatoes.

3. Slice and dice the rest of the veggies for the slaw, wrap your hot dogs in bacon, and mix up the Sriracha mayo!

4. Finish mixing the slaw and get your hot dogs in a hot skillet, turning often to crisp the bacon evenly. Transfer to some paper towels to drain slightly while you take out the potatoes.

5. Serve and enjoy!
