Grilled Cheese Hot Dogs are a super fun and tasty combination of 2 classics- Grilled Cheese and Hot Dogs. A buttery, crispy hot dog bun encases a grilled hot dog with lots of melty cheese and crispy bacon. Lunch doesn’t get any better than this!
Use Hot Dog Buns
The buns are brushed with melted butter flavored with a little garlic powder. A squishy, bland hot dog bun is easily transformed into a warm, toasted, buttery-crisp on the outside pocket for holding all kinds of deliciousness. The bun itself is every bit as crave-worthy as the yummy stuff packed inside.
Additional Ingredient Suggestions
I just added bacon and cheese to mine but you could go crazy with what you add: pickle slices, onion, jalapenos, maybe even some chili. However you best like your hot dog topped, go ahead and stuff them in these Grilled Cheese Dogs. They can only get more delicious!
