This is a fun and easy way to amp up your hot dogs for the grill with some cheese, bacon, and a few other classic hot dog topping ingredients! These come together quickly and are ready in no time. They go great with all your favorite BBQ side dishes: corn on the cob, pasta salad, baked beans, watermelon, etc.
Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
Smear 1/4 teaspoon mustard inside each butterflied hot dog. Put 2 Cheddar cheese matchsticks inside each hot dog.
Secure one end of a bacon strip to one end a hot dog using a toothpick. Wrap the bacon strip tightly around the entire hot dog, securing the far end with another toothpick; repeat for remaining hot dogs.
Cook on preheated grill until hot dogs are heated and bacon is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Place each cooked hot dog onto a bun and top with 2 pickle slices.
