The title's a mouthful, but this one turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. I highly recommend the avocado as one of the toppings. Take note of the thin sliced bacon. It's conducive to a crispier bacon wrapping.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high.
  2. With the tip of a small, sharp knife, make a slit along each hot dog’s entire length, cutting down about two-thirds of the way through its diameter. Evenly place the cheese strips inside the slit in each hot dog.
  3. Wrap the bacon in a spiral around each hot dog, then secure the bacon with a toothpick on each side.
  4. Place the hot dogs on the grill and cook, turning once, until the bacon is crisp, about 5 - 8 minutes.
  5. When the hot dogs are done, remove the toothpicks and place each hot dog into a bun.
  6. Garnish with toppings of choice.
