Spider Dogs

Shared by: Jocelyn

This recipe is one that my family and I came up with (or discovered, I can't remember anymore!) when we were camping- something we used to do A LOT. So thinking about this recipe, and eating the spider dogs brings me back to those happy childhood memories.


Hot dog
A campfire stick (either found or store bought)
Ketchup (optional)
Fried onions (optional)


Find a long, thin- yet strong- stick.
Shave the bark off of one end. Set aside.
Cut one end of a hot dog 1/3rd of the way down into 4 long quadrants
Do the same to the other end of the hot dog.
Slow roast the hot dog over the campfire. (best option)
OR bake at 400F on a try in the oven for 20 min, flipping halfway through.
Wrap one piece of bacon around 1 scallop and secure with toothpick
Wrap in tinfoil and place on burning coals for 25 min; flipping halfway.
OR bake at 400F on a tray for 25 min; flipping halfway. Then broil for 3 min to crisp.
