3 Ripe Avocados
1 Cup Mayo
1/2 White Onion, finely diced

Sam’s Bacon Wraps
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons of garlic salt or powder (whichever you prefer)
12 slices of bacon (you can use turkey bacon if you’re trying to cut back on fat)
24 long, thick pretzels

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cheese and garlic salt (or powder) in a shallow bowl and set aside. Cut the slices of bacon in half and wrap a piece around each pretzel. Swirl the bacon so that it starts at the bottom and ends at the top. Place each pretzel stick on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Back for about 15 minutes or until the bacon is browned. Take the bacon wrapped pretzels out of the oven and immediately roll bacon wraps in cheese and garlic mixture. Serve pretzels at room temperature.

Sam’s Spicy Crackers
1 box saltine crackers
1 pkg. dry ranch dip mix
3 tbs. crushed red pepper
2/3-1 cup canola oil

Mix oil, ranch mix and pepper in measuring cup or small bowl. Put all crackers in the largest bowl you have. Pour oil mixture over crackers and begin carefully and lightly stirring with hands(being careful not to break crackers) until all crackers are covered. You can serve right away and they’ll be a bit greasy, or put the crackers on paper towels in another bowl for about an hour to dry a bit.

BBCCD Con Huevos (Bacon Burger Chili Cheese Dog)

1 large kosher hotdog
1 large hand rolled hamburger pattie (diameter should be equal to hotdog length)
4 strips of thick cut bacon
4 pieces of milky, soft, white cheese (provolone or mozz. works great)
1/2 cup of your favorite chili
1 large hoagie roll
1 fried egg (cooked sunny side up)

Slice your hotdog about half way through, the entire length of the hotdog. Insert 1 piece of cheese, bend or fold as necessary. Roll out hamburger ensuring it will encase the cheese dog. Lay 2 pieces of cheese on hamburger, place cheese dog on cheeseburger pattie and roll it up, like a good cigar. Lay out 4 strips of thick cut bacon. Lay remaining cheese on top of that. Place the burger/dog on top of that and roll it up again (might need toothpicks to get it to stay in place).

Wrap the BBCD in aluminum foil and place on a covered grill for about 40 minute, for the last 5 minutes pull off the aluminum foil, and brown it up on the grill (it burns fast due to the bacon).

After it is cooked, heat your chili in a sauce pan. Place the BBCD in the hoagie roll, and apply chili over the top.

Fry your egg in a saute pan then place egg on top of BBCCD.
