Recipe - Cheese Stuffed and Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs

This is one for the kids - or yourself if you're about as childish as I am. ;)

I cooked them in the oven this time but they would go really well on the barbecue. Just pop them on some indirect heat and drop the lid. Cook until done, easy-peasy.

The homemade spicy wedges were a nice and simple compliment to make it a bit more of a meal.

There's not much to say about these ones so let's head over to the recipe portion of this post...

Hot Dogs
Smoked Streaky Bacon
Grated Cheese (strength suitable to your audience)
Mustard (strength suitable to your audience)

Preheat the oven to 250c.

Cut out a triangle all the way lengthways in the hot dogs without cutting through to the bottom. Spread the cut with mustard and then fill it with grated cheese. Wrap each hot dog with one or two slices of bacon.

Put the hot dogs on a baking tray and pop in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until cooked.



  1. Being half-Swedish I seem to have inherited a genetic quirk that makes me unable to resist hot dogs of any sort. Stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon? Now you're onto a whole new level! Amazing.

  2. I think you're on to something there. ;) Us Swedes, or descendents thereof, seem to have a long-going love affair with the hot dogs.

    Maybe the abundance of hot dog and hamburger stands (gatukök) has something to do with it.

    I'm glad that you liked my freestyling of the hot dog concept. Now I have to try and find yet another twist.

  3. I don't usually eat hot dogs...usually, lol, but bacon wrapped w/ cheese? What about adding carmelized onion? yum!

  4. Red, that's a great idea! I will have to make some caramelized onion for the next batch.

    That will complete the dish methinks! Many thanks for the inspiration.

  7. My mom used to make these when I was a kid. I have not eaten them since - the fat and sodium - too much guilt!
