Truffle Macaroni and Cheese Bacon Hot Dog

This Truffle Macaroni and Cheese Bacon Hot Dog was inspired by a recent trip to Disney Hollywood Studios. I have friends that are Disney fanatics. Vacationing is often spent at Disney parks and on their cruises. They have a way of knowing where the good food is as Disney. This hot dog was amazing, and here is my recreation of this dish.

I am using truffle oil in this recipe. Truffle oil can be purchased in some specialty stores and grocery store spice departments. I buy mine at Costco. I think that Costco’s brand is well priced, it runs under $15.00 dollars a bottle.

Truffle oil has many uses. You can drizzle in a pan and cook a steak in it, drizzle over potatoes, or if you are cooking mushrooms it is a great addition to add to the mushrooms for a little extra flavor. Now, if you don’t have truffle oil, or can’t find it, you can still make this recipe. You will get the fun of putting macaroni and cheese on top of a hot dog.

If you have never tried truffle oil before it adds a unique mushroom-like flavor. I don’t know how to describe it. It is like a really earthy mushroom, but better. Truffles are rare and insanely expensive. So typically for us mere mortals, truffle oil is a great way to capture this flavor without having to pay the price of a real truffle. I do suggest that you buy your truffle oil from a reputable brand, as some companies sell fake truffle oil.

For this recipe, I went ahead and baked my bacon. I find this easy to do, it doesn’t make a mess, and you can always save that bacon grease for some Cracker Barrel Green Beans. I like to cook my bacon to where it is pretty crispy for these hot dogs, I think it adds a nice touch to them, no one likes soggy bacon, well almost no one.

Want to know how to cook hot dogs instead of boiling them? Make Air Fryer Hot Dogs or Baked Hot Dogs in the Oven. Grilled hot dogs also have a nice smoky flavor.

    Truffle oil not available in my world so stuck with melting butter in with the sauce. It’s not uncommon for us to cook sliced hotdogs in Mac and cheese, and serve over rice, so I’m sure my hubby will enjoy this option.
