In the quest to find things for my husband to grill, and for things he will really enjoy, and to get distracted that he is doing all the cooking, I found this on Pinterest. (By the way, Dave said I often write in run-on sentences and that sometimes one paragraph will be one really long sentence, with way too many comma's, when it really should be several sentences. I don't know what he is talking about!)
Do I really need to say anything else?
I worked hard on Saturday. I sanitized the dishwasher, worked in the yard, got a pedi, took a nap, made coffee, set up a table for my mosaic (I told Dave I would finish it two years ago so I think I should get it started). And caught up on The Black List. I deserved a treat. So for dinner - Dave grilled.
I saw these on Pinterest. How did we ever get along without Pinterest? My friend Heather showed me a couple years ago and now I am slightly obsessed. I used to read in the morning with my coffee, now I scroll through Pinterest at all the perfectly designed homes, fantastic weddings, picture perfect meals...I can never live up to all that. But my boards are awesome!
So I found these hot dogs on Pinterest and decided we needed to try them ourselves. I made with cheese for Dave and me, and without cheese for the dairy-free kids. We also had some cheese and bacon wrapped corn on the cob to get a veggie in there! (My poor dairy free kids don't know what they are missing!) This was a perfect meal after such a hard day of work!
|I cut my cheese sticks in half, next time I won't do that.|
|Grill over low heat and turn often.|
Bacon Wrapped - Cheese Stuffed Hot Dogs
8 hot dogs
8 sticks of cheese, cheddar, mozzerella, pepper jack...
8-16 pieces of bacon
8 hot dog buns
Make a slit down the center of each hot dog leaving the end uncut.
Stuff hotdog with cheese stick. Wrap completely with bacon, overlapping the bacon and securing with toothpicks. (I pre-cooked the bacon for 3 minutes in the microwave before I used it for wrapping.)
Grill hotdogs over low heat until bacon is completely cooked and cheese is melty. Serve on buns.
