This recipe for bacon wrapped cheese stuffed hot dogs is brought to you today by Kayem.  I received product as well as compensation from the brand. Thank you,  for your continued support of A Cookie Before Dinner. 

In our house, game day and hot dogs to together. It’s just how things are done around here. So, when Kayem reached out to me and asked if I’d throw a Patriot’s game day party and serve their product, the answer was an easy yes. You might not know this, but my husband Mike and I met in Boston. We adore sports and enjoy Sunday’s together!

Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Hot Dogs.

There really isn’t a way to make a Kayem Fenway Frank any better than what it already is, but if I had to wrap something in bacon, this would be it.

Your guests will adore this creative tailgate recipe for bacon wrapped cheese stuff hot dogs! This is the perfect easy football appetizer!

Bacon Wrapped  Cheese Stuffed Hot Dogs Ingredients

  • 1 package Kayem Fenway Franks
  • 1/2 package bacon (you need one slice of bacon for each hot dog  you’re wrapping)
  • 3 slices cheese (I used American, it was what I had)

Bacon Wrapped  Cheese Stuffed Hot Dogs Method

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice each hot dog down the middle (be careful not to slice completely through). Slice cheese into thin strips and stuff. Starting at one end, wrap bacon around hot dog using a corkscrew method. Bake for 30 minutes on a cookie cooling pan with a cookie sheet underneath to catch the grease. Drain well with paper towel and serve hot.
