Looking for an easy and delicious 4th of July recipe? Look no further! These cheesy bacon wrapped hot dogs are awesome! How could they not be…Cheese and Bacon...YUM!
I used Oscar Mayer Bun Length hot dogs. I'm really not sure why all hot dogs aren't bun length. Doesn't make sense.
Anyway, I stuffed each hot dog with American cheese and wrapped each dog in two slices of precooked bacon. You can use any cheese you like. I used American cheese because it melts so much better than other cheeses. I also highly suggest using the precooked bacon (or cook it yourself) so the bacon gets nice and crispy. I am not a fan of chewy bacon!
The dogs can be prepared ahead of time and baked when you are ready for them. They would be a great addition to your 4th of July celebration or just a quick Summer lunch!
Recipe for 8 dogs:
8 hot dogs (Oscar Mayer Bun Length)
3 slices American cheese, cut into strips
16 slices precooked bacon
8 hot dog buns
Preheat oven to 450.
Slit hot dogs lengthwise down the middle, but not all the way through. Stuff cheese strips into slit. Wrap 2 slices of bacon around each hot dog, securing with toothpicks.
Bake hot dogs for 10 minutes. Serve in buns with desired toppings.
