  1. Preheat oven to 390ºF.
  2. Mix the yeast, sugar and warm water, and let rest for 15 minutes.
  3. Add the olive oil and flour gradually, mixing with a spoon. Season with salt to taste. Knead until the dough becomes elastic. Let rise for 45 minutes.
  4. Shape into buns, and brush with egg yolk. Bake for 25 minutes.
  5. In a blender, mix milk and oil at low speed. Add the lime juice.
  6. When the mixture becomes thick with a creamy consistency, add the salt, pepper, garlic clove and basil leaves. Blend for 1 more minute. Set aside.
  7. Add butter to a frying pan, and as soon as it melts, add the onion slices and sauté until caramelized.
  8. Roll the franks up in the bacon slices, and place in 350ºF oven for 20 minutes.
  9. Cut the buns in half lengthwise, arrange the franks, cover with the basil sauce, and top with the caramelized onions.
