Fakin'-wrapped tofu dogs

Has anyone else noticed that meat has become a total fad? Like, I went to a girlfriend's house this weekend and saw a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies. I actually felt the need to ask if there was bacon in them before I ate one! According to Google trends, searching for bacon has definitely gone up in the last couple of years, especially in comparison to other meats. What do you guys think of this meat bandwagon (the meat-wagon)? I'm interested to hear the opinions of meat and non-meat eaters.

Back to my fakin'-wrapped tofu dogs. They were ok - definitely a novelty food item that I probably won't make again. I'm a fan of the Morningstar Farms "Bacon" (aka Fakin') and their tofu dogs are pretty good, too.

1 tofu dog
2 strips Fakin'
some toothpicks
a hot-dog bun
whatever fixing you like!

1) I made mine in the kitchen rather than on the grill. This seems good because fakin' burns really fast, and its terrible if its burned. So this was the safe way of making it. Cut some slits in the tofu dog and microwave for 40 seconds. Flip it over, and microwave for another 30 seconds.

2). Wrap the uncooked fakin' around the tofu dog - attach with toothpicks. In a non-stick skillet, cook the dog on each side until the fakin starts getting crispy.

3) Dress, and enjoy!

You should have wrapped the "hotdog" in "bacon" and deep fried it.
