  • “What’s not to love with bacon and cheese? Really simple and good hot dogs. Thanks Sweet Jane for sharing. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet Tag.”

  • “First time I’ve eaten bacon wrapped around a hot dog and this was great! No willpower = put rest of bacon in the freezer to stop me from making and eating more, LOL. (made for Think Pink Tag Game for Breast Cancer Awareness Month)”

  • “We had these along with mac n cheese and stewed tomatoes.Great dogs!”

  • “Here’s a great oldie-goldie!I’ve been making our hot dogs like this since long before they came out with the weiners with chees processed inside them. Be sure not to split the weiner all the way thru or you will lose most of your melted cheese.My family loves these. After wrapping the bacon around these, you can microwave them which makes this even easier. “

  • “Now THIS is a hot dog.Wow these were good.Watch the bacon closely while frying so it doesn’tget too crispy or you can’t wrap it around the dogs.This iskeeper…everyone gobbled them down.”

  • “My Mom made these also! Except she called them Swanky Frankies.She didn’t split the hot dog completely in half, just enough to hold the cheese. Used cheddar instead of American.Gees, you brought back memories.I’ll have to go buy the ingredients.”
