  • 1 batch of Vegan Queso Dip (see link in notes)
  • 1 package of Lightlife Smart Bacon
  • hot dog buns


  • Prepare the queso dip according to instructions and set aside.
  • Prepare the Smart Bacon according to package instructions—I pan sear mine until slightly brown and crisp on each side. Once cooked, chop into small pieces and set aside.

To assemble your Bacon Cheese Dog:

  • Drizzle with vegan queso dip.
  • Sprinkle with Smart Bacon bits.
  • ENJOY!
