*****************************

INGREDIENTS
1 teaspoon ketchup
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
4 large hot dogs, knockwurst, or kielbasa

METHOD
1 Prepare your grill for direct medium high heat.
2 Mix together the ketchup and mustard in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the sauerkraut with the chopped onion, set aside. Slice open the hot dogs, down the center, lengthwise, forming a deep pocket in each, but not cutting all the way through. Coat the inside of each hot dog with the mustard ketchup mixture.
3 Place a strip of cheese deep within the pocket of each hot dog. Top with sauerkraut and onions. Encapsulate the cheese at the ends with the sauerkraut mixture as well, so that no cheese is exposed (otherwise it will drip out when cooking).

4 Wrap a strip of bacon around each stuffed hot dog, securing with toothpicks at each end. Make sure you wrap tight enough so that the stuffing stays in, but not so tight so that when the hot dog expands will cooking the bacon would tear.

5 Coat your grill surface with vegetable oil so that the hot dogs don’t stick. If you have a grill screen (a screen with smaller holes so that small pieces of whatever you’re cooking don’t fall through the grill), you can use it, just coat it with vegetable oil first and pre-heat for a couple of minutes. Place the stuffed hot dogs on the grill, stuffing side down. Grill for 2 minutes, until the bacon on that side is cooked, turn the hot dogs a quarter turn and grill for a couple more minutes. Continue to grill for a few minutes each on all sides until the bacon is cooked. Cover the grill in between turnings to help with the cooking.
6 During the last minute of cooking, open up the hot dog buns and place them open-side down on the grill to lightly toast.
7 Remove the hot dogs and buns from the grill. Remove the toothpicks fro the hot dogs, place them in the buns and serve.

Makes 4 stuffed hot dogs.

    I want to express my thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from this issue. Right after surfing around through the world wide web and getting techniques that were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was well over. Living without the presence of strategies to the problems you’ve solved by way of your entire site is a crucial case, as well as the ones that might have adversely affected my career if I had not come across the blog. The expertise and kindness in maneuvering every part was valuable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a step like this. I can also at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the skilled and results-oriented guide. I will not think twice to refer the blog to any individual who will need direction on this topic.
