I was having a craving for hot dogs and I started trying to think of delicious ways to dress up a hot dog for a fun weeknight dinner with my boys. A bacon cheeseburger came to mind and I thought why not incorporate those flavors into a hot dog.
We were out of propane for the BBQ, the day I first made these, so I baked the hot dogs in the oven, but since I posted the recipe, I’ve also made these on the grill and the smoker too. Any way you cook them, everyone loves them.

Cooking the hot dogs on a grill is my preferred method in the summer, but sometimes it isn’t convenient. So you can easily use your oven to make these Bacon Wrapped Cheese Hot Dogs just as delicious! Follow the directions below in our printable recipe for best results.
