    Hot Dogs are a Memorial Day staple but if you are looking for a way to spice up the dog, Friday's Meal in a Minute is a great idea.

    What you need:

    • All Beef Hot Dog
    • Swiss Cheese
    • 2 strips of thick cut bacon
    • 3-4 toothpicks
    The first step is to cut a slit in the hot dog.  Cut the slit about 3/4 of the way through the hot dog.  Next stuff as much Swiss cheese as you can into the slit. Finally wrap the hot dog with the bacon.  Start at one end, anchor the bacon with a toothpick, and then start wrapping.  When the bacon starts to run out, add another piece of bacon and use a single toothpick to hold both pieces in place.  Then continue until the end and use another toothpick to hold the other end in place.  Having less toothpicks will make it easier to rotate the hot dog. Then place the hot dogs over indirect heat and grill. Rotate the dogs every 4-5 minutes. The whole process is going to take about 20 minutes. By doing it over indirect heat and constantly turning you get a crispy piece of bacon that is not raw on the inside.  Cooking over direct heat would cook the outside of the bacon and leave the inside raw. Serve with your favorite topping!
