Bacon Wrapped Cheddar Stuffed Hot Dogs

Most people would agree that bacon makes everything better, so when we were trying to figure out what we should cook when we were field testing our new EZ Over grill, bacon wrapped & cheese stuffed hot dogs was an easy answer.

We’d highly suggest doing the prep work for this in your kitchen at home before you go – it’ll make life much easier so when you get to the camp site all you have to do is cook and not worry about any of the prep work. 

The very first thing you’re going to want to do is grab all your ingredients, which means you’ll need hotdogs, bacon, cheddar cheese and toothpicks.  For 8 hot dogs we used 8 strips of bacon and 2/3 a 1lb brick of cheddar cheese, so if you’re going to be making more than 8 you’ll need to scale up from there.

Start by taking each hot dog and slicing them longways about 90% of the way through.  You want to slice just enough so you can stuff them, but not too much that you slice through the outer skin on the bottom.  Making sure your hotdog halves stay connected will make prep and cooking much easier.


Next, slice your cheese into thin slices so they’ll fit nicely inside the hot dogs. We used a cheese slicer to get nice even cuts. Pile up your cheese slices, grab your bacon, and get ready to start stuffing and wrapping.

Lay one strip of bacon down on a cutting board or prep surface diagonally and place your hot dog on top of it as shown. Grab a couple pieces of cheese and place them inside the middle of your hotdog.  Now, pick up your hot dog and the slice of bacon and start wrapping the bacon around the hot dog until the entire piece of bacon is used.  One strip of bacon should cover an average sized hot dog pretty well, but if you’re using larger than average hot dogs you can always use two strips of bacon to make sure its fully covered.  bacon-wrapped-cheddar-stuffed-hot-dogs-and-ez-over-grill-review-2

Use a toothpick in each end to keep the bacon in place and also hold the hot dog together.  You’ll want to make sure you get the bacon to cover as much of the hot dog as possible, especially the sides to help keep the cheese from spilling out when it starts to melt.bacon-wrapped-cheddar-stuffed-hot-dogs-and-ez-over-grill-review-3

Place your hot dogs on your cooking surface and let the magic begin.  We cooked these over a medium heat for about 40 minutes, flipping once.  You’ll want to make sure your bacon is cooked nice and evenly (which was a breeze in the EZ Over grill) so don’t cook it at too high a heat otherwise it will burn.bacon-wrapped-cheddar-stuffed-hot-dogs-and-ez-over-grill-review-4


We served these on freshly toasted buns (toasted on top of the EZ Over grill), and they were phenomenal.  You can also sub out the cheddar cheese for american, pepperjack, or swiss, whatever your personal cheese preference, the procedure will be the same!

These bacon wrapped and cheddar stuffed hot dogs are a real treat you will want to make over and over again.


  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 2/3 pound of cheddar cheese
  • 8 hot dog buns


  1. Start by slicing your hot dogs lengthwise about 90% of the way through, so you leave a little bit connecting them and can open them up to stuff them.
  2. Next, take small pieces of cheese and place them inside the slice in the hot dog.
  3. Starting at one end of the hot dog, wrap the bacon around the diagonally until the entire length of the hot dog is covered.  Secure the bacon strip in place with toothpicks at either end.
  4. Place your hot dogs on the grill over low to medium heat and let them cook.  It should take approximately 30 minutes over a low to medium heat to cook the bacon, the hot dog, and melt the cheese.  Once the bacon is crisp to your preference, remove them from the grill and serve.
  5. For an added bonus, toast your hot dog buns on your grill as well to give them a little extra crunch.
