    Molly53's Note:

    So easy, so fast, and so tasty. You'll do better with this recipe using real cheese, not cheese food product. From the Wisconsin Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.

      My mom used to make these for us in the late 50's to early 60's. I make them today and refer to them as 'my dirty little secret'! Love them. To make them 'healthier' I use turkey dogs ! I believe they were called fran cheesies at the time. Preccok the bacon to get rid of some of the fat. The bacon should still be pliable enough to wrap the hot dog. Top with diced onions and mustard.

      Holy Cow! My mom used to make this all the time when I was a kid. I just love these and will start to make them again as my "comfort food". Thanks for reminding me.

      Made last night for National Hot Dog Month. Had some trouble with turning the dogs to crisp the bacon with the toothpicks. A very good recipe and easy!
