Hot dogs topped with cheese

Grilled cheese or hot dogs? It can be hard to choose when your stomach starts growling. Instead of going with one or the other, whip up some grilled cheese dogs. These cheese dogs offer the best of both worlds, so your taste buds are sure to be satisfied.

Ingredients for Grilled Cheese Dogs

You only need a handful of ingredients to make grilled cheese dogs. Gather the following:

  • 6 hot dog buns
  • 6 hot dogs
  • 3 cups of shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheese, mixed
  • 6 tablespoons of soft butter

Instructions for Making Grilled Cheese Dogs

This recipe is a breeze to make, so you’ll have the hot dogs on the table in no time. Start by putting a non-stick skillet on the stove and heating it on medium heat. While your skillet is heating up, take out the hot dog buns and flatten them with a rolling pin. Then, spread a tablespoon of butter on the outside of each bun.

Your skillet should be warm after you finish spreading the butter. Put the buns in the skillet, making sure that the butter side is down. Then, put one-third of a cup of cheese on the top of each bun. Make sure you sprinkle it evenly, so you can enjoy some cheese with every bite.

Next, you need to slice the hot dogs lengthwise. Don’t cut the hot dogs all the way through, but slice them deep enough that they can lay flat. Then, put the hot dogs in the skillet with the open side facing down. Let that side cook for two minutes and then flip the dogs. The hot dogs need to grill for an additional minute. Then, pair the hotdogs with the buns. Put each hotdog on the left or right side of the bun. After, add another three tablespoons of cheese to each one and then close the buns up. Keep cooking until all the cheese melts.

Then, take the grilled cheese dogs out of the skillet. They’ll be ready to eat!

Additional Tips

While you can make all the grilled cheese dogs at once, it’s much easier to make them one at a time. They are so fast to prepare that you can make them back to back without worrying about any of them getting cold.

Also, these grilled cheese dogs taste great on their own, but they are even better if you add ketchup and mustard. Don’t include condiments when cooking, though. Instead, serve it on the side so people can dip it if they want.

These grilled cheese dogs are mouth-wateringly delicious. Whether you are cooking for kids or adults, you can expect this dish to be a hit. After all, it is like two comfort foods in one. That’s a reason to grab your skillet and start cooking.
