Hot Dog Grilled Cheese is a wonderful combination of 2 classics – hot dogs and grilled cheese!  Is it an elevated grilled cheese or is it an elevated hot dog?  You tell me!  They are super cheesy, have a crispy toasted bun, and can be made with any type of hotdog (beef, pork, turkey, etc.) …what’s not to love?  I devoured 2 of these on my own and was still thinking about them the next day 😊 So, if you have picky eaters or have an argument about what’s for dinner every night, I highly recommend you give these Hot Dog Grilled Cheese sandwiches a try.  They are sure to please everyone!

The recipe can be found here.

Start by heating a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Open both hot dog buns and use the palm on your hands to flatten slightly.  Spread the outside of each bun with butter, making sure to completely coat the outside.  Place the buns on the skillet, butter side down.

You might notice the recipe makes 2.  Simply double the recipe or prepare however many you need to complete your meal, as there are only 4 required ingredients to complete this dish (5 if you add a condiment).

Sprinkle ½ cup of shredded cheese over each bun.  I like to use Colby Jack cheese, but you can use cheddar, Monterey Jack, pepper jack, etc. to customize to your tastes.

Slice each hot dog in half, lengthwise, without cutting all the way through.  Place the hot dogs, cut side down, on the skillet.

Cook the hot dogs for about 2 minutes then flip and continue to cook the other side for about 2 minutes.  You want the hot dog to be warmed through and a little crispy on the outside.

The buns will continue to toast while the hot dogs cook, getting a golden-brown crust, and melting the cheese.

Add the hot dogs to the top of the buns and fold the buns in half.  Remove from the heat.

Serve immediately, while still hot, with ketchup and/or mustard on the side for dipping (optional).  Enjoy!

These are delicious!  And are a quick and easy meal.  If you like to load up your hot dogs, add some relish, sauteed peppers and onions, or additional condiments to your liking.

Happy Cooking!
