Dad’s Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Hot Dogs

If you are going to serve hot dogs, this is the way to have them according to my father- in -law and you will not be able to have just one. You have been warned. These can either be grilled or oven baked.

Dad’s Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Hot Dogs
Serves 6

6 all beef hot dogs
12 thick slices sharp cheddar cheese, cut into small strips
12 slices bacon
6 toasted hot dog buns

With a small knife cut a lengthwise slit about 3/4 of the way through each hot dog but do not cut all the way through to the ends. Insert two pieces of cheese into the slits, pressing the cheese in tightly. Starting at one end of the hot dog, wrap two strips of bacon around each one overlapping the slices.

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Place the hot dogs over indirect heat and grill on one side for 4 minutes or until bacon is crispy and cooked through. Use tongs to turn the hot dogs on the other side and cook until bacon is crispy. Remove toothpicks and serve hot dogs on the toasted buns with relish, ketchup and mustard if desired.

To bake, place hot dogs on a broiler pan and place in 400F pre-heated oven; bake about 12 to 15 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
