Now i’m usually more of a ‘drop scones, not bombs’ girl (blog to follow) however on occasion sometimes as in this case it really is the bomb!

This dish was inspired by a bacon wrapped number I had seen on YouTube by a West Hollywood Eatery called Estrella.  You can watch the video here. I made it for my husbands birthday breakfast and he loved it. I having recently given up most meats I wanted a vegetarian alternative that still packed that ‘what’s inside here?’ excitement and obviously was a delight to eat.

Then topped with your favourite sauces and pickles for a true hotdog experience.
