Bacon Mac & Cheese Footlong Hotdog //

Bacon Mac & Cheese Footlong Hotdog

  • Author: Elana Lepkowski
  • Yield: 2 hotdogs 1x


Creamy mac & cheese with bacon bits and chives makes a delicious topping for a footlong hotdog! A Disneyland-inspired treat from the “Get Your Ears On” celebration.


  • 2 cups creamy mac & cheese, prepared
  • 34 slices of bacon
  • 2 footlong hotdogs (I used Farmer John’s Dodger Dogs)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives, divided
  • 2 french rolls


  1. Start by preparing the mac & cheese per the box’s instructions.
  2. Next, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crispy. Watch that it does not go from crispy to burned! Set aside until warm and then chop bacon to small bite-sized pieces.
  3. Cook hotdogs over medium heat about 8 minutes, turning occasionally to crisp skin on all sides. While hotdogs are cooking, warm french rolls if desired. 
  4. To assemble: carve out a small section from french rolls and place hotdog inside. Scoop mac & cheese on top. Sprinkle with bacon bits and chopped chives. Enjoy!


  • Use a french roll instead of a standard hotdog bun for a sturdier base
  • All components can be prepared up to a day in advance and reheated to assemble
