Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs with Pimento Cheese

Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs with Pimento Cheese.

That’s two of my favorite things- bacon and pimento cheese.

Next to Southern Slaw Dogs, it is my favorite way to deck out hot dogs.

The bacon gets wrapped around the hot dogs. You’ll need to secure it with toothpicks (soak them in water first so they don’t catch fire) and be sure not to wrap the bacon tightly. The bacon will shrink as it cooks.

A little time on the grill and the bacon gets fabulously crispy.

Place them in hot dog buns. Be sure to take out the toothpicks. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Quite frankly, they’re delicious just as is with a squirt of mustard or ketchup. But if you want something a little different and a little more southern, slather them with pimento cheese. Be sure to do this right when the hot dogs come off the grill. You want the heat from the hot dogs to melt the pimento cheese. Then you’ll have a blanket of warm, gooey cheese on top!

  1. Cheese + spices. What an amazing combo! I usually add lots of hot sauce to any of my cheese covered hot dogs but want to give this recipe a try in my kitchen the next time I BBQ! Thanks so much for sharing ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. These hotdogs are totally calling my name! I adore bacon and pimento cheese, these are such a great idea!

  3. Let’s just put pimento cheese on everything, ok? Think how happy everyone would be. And girl–I am so glad to see that you don’t put cream cheese in your pimento cheese. What is up with that? My grandmother would spin in her grave if she ever thought I was doing that. I know I just dissed a lot of southern pimento cheese, but mayo is the only way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I honestly don’t even remember the last time I had a hot dog – which is crazy! These look awesome – my husband would love the bacon part especially I think!!

  5. These are the ultimate hot dogs! My son and husband would polish these up in no time! They look incredible, Christin!

    I’m craving these hot dogs for breakfast, Christin! I love how creative these are! I’ve never thought to wrap mine in bacon, let alone with pimento cheese. Sounds delicious!

    I didn’t eat hot dogs at all until a few years ago, and even now I really prefer them (a) blackened; and (b) with very distracting adornment. Pimento cheese and bacon definitely qualify! If you ever make it to Chattanooga, you have to eat at Good Dog…they have a fabulous pimento cheese dog and a BLT dog!
