Ingredients
  • 8 ounces ground skirt steak
  • 4 jumbo hot dogs
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped basil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped sage
  • 4 oversized hot dog buns, toasted
  • 4 jumbo eggs, separated
  • 1 jar peach preserves
  • Ground chipotle chile pepper, for sprinkling
  • 8 strips center-cut thick-sliced bacon, cooked crisp
  • 2 ounces freshly shredded mild Cheddar
  • 2 ounces freshly shredded gruyere
  • 2 ounces freshly shredded pepper jack
Directions
  • Heat a grill pan to medium-high heat.

  • Add the ground beef to a large nonstick medium pan. Cook until brown and crumbly, about 8 minutes.

  • Grill the hot dogs on all sides. Once cooked, remove from the grill and butterfly down the center.

  • While the beef and hot dogs are cooking, add the butter, basil, cilantro and sage to a hot skillet. Toast the buns on the grill pan with the hot dogs. Spread the melted herb butter on the buns before serving.

  • Fry the egg whites, one egg at a time, in a separate nonstick skillet. Transfer the egg whites to a plate once cooked and reserve.

  • To serve, spread some peach preserves on the toasted and buttered bun. Sprinkle to taste with the chipotle pepper. Add 1 egg white to the bottom of each bun and add some of the ground beef down the center. Top with the butterflied hot dog, a slice of bacon and a sprinkling of Cheddar, gruyere and pepper jack.
