I used Oscar Mayer Bun Length hot dogs. I'm really not sure why all hot dogs aren't bun length. Doesn't make sense. #deepthoughts Anyway, I stuffed each hot dog with American cheese and wrapped each dog in two slices of precooked bacon. You can use any cheese you like. I used American cheese because it melts so much better than other cheeses. I also highly suggest using the precooked bacon (or cook it yourself) so the bacon gets nice and crispy. I am not a fan of chewy bacon! The dogs can be prepared ahead of time and baked when you are ready for them. They would be a great addition to your 4th of July celebration next week or just a quick Summer lunch!

Slit hot dogs lengthwise down the middle, but not all the way through. Stuff cheese strips into slit. Wrap 2 slices of bacon around each hot dog, securing with toothpicks.
