Cook Time
15 MIN
8 Hot dog buns
8 Hot dogs
8 Slices of Borden® Pepper Jack Melts
8 Slices of crispy bacon
1 tbs Olive oil - for brushing
Optional toppings Relish, diced onions, pickled jalapeños, sliced pickles, and/or your favorite condiments
PREHEAT your grill to medium-high heat.
COOK the bacon until crispy In a skillet over medium heat on the stovetop. Remove and let it cool on a paper towel-lined plate. Let it cool.
CRUMBLE the bacon and set aside
GRILL the hot dogs: Brush the hot dogs lightly with olive oil to prevent sticking. Place the hot dogs on the preheated grill and cook for about 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are heated through and have grill marks.
TOAST the buns: While the hot dogs are grilling, open the buns and place them on the grill, cut side down. Toast for about 1 minute until they are lightly toasty.
ASSEMBLE the hot dogs while still on the grill. Place each hot dog in a toasted bun. Top each hot dog IMMEDIATELY with a slice of Borden® generous amount of crumbled bacon. Cover the lid of the grill or the hot dog itself with a bowl or lid to encourage melting for 20 seconds.
REMOVE from grill and any optional toppings and condiments of your choice.
SERVE immediately while hot, and enjoy! They go fast!
If your cheese doesn't reach desired amount of melt, place the hot dog (on the bun with the cheese on it) in the microwave or 15 seconds -- keep the bacon off until cheese has desired melt.
