YOU WILL NEVER EAT A PLAIN HOT DOG AGAIN!! I am not a big hot dog eater. But if you are like me you must try this recipe for Bacon-Wrapped cheese-Stuffed Hot Dogs. You will love them!! These are delicious for the Fourth Of July or any summer BBQ!


  • Hot Dogs...use all-beef hot dogs.
  • Bacon 
  • Cheese…Any type of cheese will work perfectly on these hot dogs.
  • Jalapenos
  • Buns
  • Toothpicks

If you’re grilling, soak the toothpicks in water for 10-15 minutes first. This prevents them from catching fire on the grill

Then take your time grilling them so that, as the cheese melts, the bacon gets crispy all the way around.
