Jalapeno Popper Hot Dogs
Perfect game day hot dogs!

Ingredients

  • (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • (1 tablespoon or to taste) minced jalapeno
  • (3 tablespoons or to taste) Shoulder Bacon
  • (1 cup) sharp cheddar cheese
  • (to taste) salt and pepper
  • (2 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • (8) Hot Dogs (100% Beef) (Sugar Free)
  • (8) hot dog buns
  • (to garnish) cilantro (optional)

Directions

  1. In a skillet over mid-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter and place hot dogs in skillet. Allow them to cook for 2-3 minutes or until they are nicely browned. Roll the hot dogs over to brown the other side - another 2-3 minutes or until they are browned to your liking.
  2. While hot dogs are cooking, combine cream cheese, jalapeno, bacon, and 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese in a medium bowl. Mix well. Add a pinch of salt and give it a taste.
  3. Adjust the seasonings as needed, adding pepper if needed. Because jalapenos can vary widely in heat level, be sure to add more if needed.
  4. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture on each hot dog bun. Place a cooked hot dog in each bun and sprinkle on the remaining cheddar cheese, dividing equally among all hot dogs.
  5. Place the hot dogs on a foil lined baking sheet and place in the oven under the broiler. Remember to leave the oven door ajar when broiling and watch them closely. It will only take 30 seconds to a minute for the cheese to melt. When the cheese is melted to your liking, remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  6. Garnish the hot dogs with freshly chopped cilantro, serve, and enjoy!
