    Sue's Kitchen's Note:

    I worked at A&W in the Montreal area during my college years and, by far, these were the best "non-steamie" hot dog around! Easy to make and so tasty. In the '70s we used Canadian back bacon - nowadays, they use regular bacon - both taste great. Ohhhhh, the memories :-)

      I made this recipe on 9/2/13 as part of mine and my SO's Labor Day Dinner. Since it was two of us, the recipe was doubled.And a few changes were made as to how it was prepared,they are as follows. First, the dogs weren't split, I just left them whole and wrapped the bacon around them. Then to get a crispy crust, I pan fried them in cast iron skillet. To get the cheese which I had cut diagonally to melt, the slices were placed on the dogs while still in the skillet and covered. After about 2 to 3 minutes, the cheese was melted perfectly. My SO doesn't care for relish, so his was topped with chopped sweet onion. Mine was topped with both onion & sweet relish. This dog made a very good addition to our Labor Day dinner. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

      Delicious. I always made these in the oven, but this way is so much easier. Doing them this way is great.
