“This is a fun and easy way to amp up your hot dogs for the grill with some cheese, bacon, and a few other classic hot dog topping ingredients! These come together quickly and are ready in no time. They go great with all your favorite BBQ side dishes: corn on the cob, pasta salad, baked beans, watermelon, etc.”


1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard

4 hot dogs, butterflied

2 ounces cheddar cheese, sliced into 8 matchsticks

4 strips thick-cut bacon

8 toothpicks

4 hot dog buns, split

1 large (5 inch) dill pickle, sliced into 8 long strips


Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

Smear 1/4 teaspoon mustard inside each butterflied hot dog. Put 2 Cheddar cheese matchsticks inside each hot dog.

Secure one end of a bacon strip to one end a hot dog using a toothpick. Wrap the bacon strip tightly around the entire hot dog, securing the far end with another toothpick; repeat for remaining hot dogs.

Cook on preheated grill until hot dogs are heated and bacon is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Place each cooked hot dog onto a bun and top with 2 pickle slices.
