Great easy and fun sandwich! I used a sourdough bread loaf and it was really great with the hotdogs, bacon, and cheese. I put onions on half and left half without. Enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe!

This is a really great sandwich! My whole family loved it and my 15 year old came in and said it was great and asked it there was anymore...That's saying something! I used turkey bacon, onion buns, onions, light Oscar Mayer beef franks, and 2% cheeses and mustard. Wonderful and lower in fat! Thanks, we will make this again!

Mmmmmm... DH said I can make this anytime! I used kaiser rolls and organic all-beef hot dogs and cut the hot dogs both in half length and width-wise. I don't like onions and am lactose intolerant so I just had mine with bacon and hot dogs and toasted bread and it was still really yummy! DH had all the fixings and ate two huge sandwiches :)
