This recipe is a delicious twist on classic hot dogs, with crispy bacon and gooey cheese adding extra flavor and indulgence. Perfect for a barbecue or a casual weeknight dinner.


  • 4 hot dogs
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 4 slices of cheese (cheddar, American, or your choice)
  • 1/2 cup diced onions


  1. Preheat your grill or stovetop grill pan to medium-high heat.
  2. Make a lengthwise cut down the center of each hot dog, creating a pocket for the cheese.
  3. Insert one slice of cheese into each hot dog pocket.
  4. Wrap each hot dog tightly with 2 slices of bacon, securing the ends with toothpicks if needed.
  5. Place the bacon-wrapped hot dogs on the grill, turning occasionally, until the bacon is crispy and the cheese is melted (about 8-10 minutes).
  6. While the hot dogs are cooking, sauté the diced onions in a separate pan until they are caramelized and golden brown.
  7. Once the bacon-wrapped hot dogs are done, remove them from the grill and let them cool slightly.
  8. Serve the hot dogs on buns, topped with the caramelized onions.
  9. Enjoy your bacon-wrapped cheese-stuffed hot dogs!
