Happy Labor Day! Bacon Wrapped Cheese Dogs

Bacon Wrapped Cheese Dogs


Adapted from

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.



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
