Throwing together a lunch sometimes requires some careful planning, especially if you want it to be delicious. Even though it tends to be a fast meal, we still want to have something that is worth eating. Once you see this recipe for bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed hot dogs, you will realize that you have now found your perfect lunch for you and your family.
Most of us would admit that bacon makes anything taste better. We probably enjoy it on a regular basis, and we can add it to anything from a potato side dish to chocolate (think chocolate covered bacon). This recipe, however, takes things a step further and in doing so, it really makes a difference is how much we enjoy the food it provides. This recipe is not only fantastic, it is what you would call a keeper.
8 hot dogs
8 slices of gouda cheese
16 slices bacon, pre-cooked
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
8 hot dog buns, toasted
Preheat grill to low.
Slice each hot dog lengthwise down the middle, but not all the way through. Fill the pocket with cheese.
Wrap the hot dog with two slices of thin-sliced, pre-cooked bacon. Secure bacon with toothpicks.
Baste with your favorite BBQ sauce.
Grill on all four sides starting with the cheese facing down. Grill until bacon is crisp, the hot dog is sweating and the cheesy is melted.
