Bacon & Cheese Dogs
Servings: 8 Prep 20 mins Grill 8 mins


  • 8 large beef hot dogs
  • 2 slices American cheese (1-1/2 ounces)
  • 8 slices turkey bacon
  • 8 large hot dog buns
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 8 tablespoons tomato-bacon mayonnaise

Make It

1. Heat gas grill to medium or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals.

2. Cut a slit lengthwise in each hot dog, being careful not to cut through to other side. Cut each slice of cheese into 4 equal strips. Fold 1 strip lengthwise in half. Fit into sliced opening of one hot dog, pressing so cheese is not exposed past cut edge. Repeat with remaining hot dogs and cheese.

3. Place a strip of turkey bacon on a work surface. Diagonally wrap bacon slice around hot dog, enclosing completely. Snip a toothpick in half and use to secure both ends of bacon to hot dog. Repeat with remaining hot dogs and bacon.

4. Grill hot dogs 8 minutes, turning occasionally to cook on all sides. Be careful not to burn the bacon.

To serve:

5. Split rolls, and spread one cut side of each roll with 1 tablespoon tomato-bacon mayonnaise. Top with 1/4-cup shredded lettuce. Remove toothpicks and place a hot dog on each bun.
