Recipe - Cheese-a-Peno Hot Dogs

This recipe comes from the How To Grill book I reviewed yesterday. This is my first try (see the photos below) and they didn't look half as good as the ones from the book but they tasted great though. Try these for your next barbie and your guests will be well impressed.

Cheese-a-Peno Hot Dogs - Serves 4

8 thick hot dogs or knackwursts
4 - 6 jalapeno peppers, sliced crosswise (I used pickled pre-sliced ones)
4 - 5 ounces Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Munster or Gruyere cheese, cut into strips
8 hot dog buns
2 tablespoons melted butter
Butcher's string
Mustard, ketchup, relish and/or diced onions, for serving

Method (see pictures below)
Make two lengthwise cuts in each hot dog to remove a slender v-shaped strip from the center.

Insert the cheese and four jalapeno slices in the slit.

Tie each hot dog crosswise in two places (or more) with butcher's string.

Place the hot dogs on the grill parallel to the bars of the grate, so the bars hold the hot dogs upright.

Grill the bottoms until crisp, then roll the hot dogs slightly to grill each side.

Brush the inside of the hot dog buns with the butter and heat them on the grill.

Assemble the hot dogs and the condiments in the buns.
