Grilled Bacon Wrapped stuffed hotdogs

I remarked to my brother that we had been doing a lot of salads and veggies lately and without missing a beat my brother said, "I want to make stuffed hot dogs," adding, "on the grill," pointing to a particularly appetizing recipe in our that a friend gave us and I just stuffed it awawy in our family  cookbook. Note that, in spite of gender stereotypes, my brother is the main baker in our family, and I am in charge of anything to do with the grill. So, when my brother says he wants to make a grilled recipe, he means that he wants me to do the cooking, while he'll do the prepping, which is more than fine by me.
Do you like hot dogs, mustard, ketchup, cheese, onions, sauerkraut and bacon? Then this is the stuffed hot dog recipe for you. It's all in there, held in place by a wrapping of bacon around the hot dog. You can easily exchange the toppings for others, though note that the sauerkraut does help keep the cheese inside the hot dog while cooking.

Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Hotdogs

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 large hot dogs, knockwurst, or kielbasa
  • 1/2 ounce cheddar cheese, cut into long sticks
  • 2 Tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 cup refrigerated sauerkraut, drained, roughly chopped
  • 4 slices bacon
  • Vegetable oil
  • 4 long hot dog buns

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.
