- 4 frankfurters
- 8 slices thick-cut bacon
- 4 ounces cheddar cheese, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 4 hot dog rolls
- wooden toothpicks
Preheat the broiler. Pat the frankfurters dry. In a skillet cook the bacon for 3 minutes or until still pliable and not crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
Cut a 1/2-inch slit lengthwise from end to end of each frankfurter. Stuff each frankfurter with the cheese. Wrap the entire length of each frankfurter with 2 slices of the bacon and secure with toothpicks.
Place the prepared frankfurters on a rack over a baking pan or on a broiler pan. Broil the frankfurters until the bacon is crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes or bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
