My guess is that while hotdogs are very easy and quick to prepare, bacon takes a bit more time and therefore is less favored; for the burgermaking folk, it's less of a jump to also make bacon rather than just patties.
I thought pigs in a blanket were something else like a cabbage roll.
While a normal hotdog is easy to prepare, I think a bacon hotdog is easier than a bacon burger as you can cook it in one step with the bacon wrapped around it and on the grill. With a bacon burger you can't get around cooking the bacon and patty seperate.
I will take you up on the cream cheese Slim next time I'm back home.
