8 hot dogs
1/2 cup shredded Colby or pepper jack cheese
16 slices bacon, pre-cooked (I use Hormel fully cooked bacon that goes in microwave usually)
8 hot dog buns, toasted

Prep Day: Slice each hot dog lengthwise down the middle almost, but not all the way through. Fill the pocket with a little shredded cheese. Wrap the hot dog with two slices of thin-sliced, pre-cooked bacon. Secure bacon with toothpicks if necessary. Place in freezer bag, place wrapped buns in same bag, and freeze.

Serve Day: Thaw. Preheat oven to 450º. Bake approximately 10 minutes until cheese is melted and bacon and hot dog are hot. Toast buns at the same time.
