Cheese-Stuffed Brown Sugar Bacon-wrapped BBQ Dogs

Susan Bickta


There's no need for extra condiments or garnish with these tasty hot dogs, but, if desired, serve with minced onion, relish and mustard. For a Polynesian flair, add some crushed pineapple to the bbq sauce or for extra "heat" use pepperjack cheese instead of string cheese.
