How To Make Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Hot Dogs

These grilled stuffed hot dogs are the ultimate comfort food! Savory hot dogs are filled with cheese and sauerkraut then wrapped with bacon.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 11 minutes
Total: 21 minutes



  • 1tspketchup
  • 1tspdijon mustard
  • 4large hot dogs,knockwurst or kielbasa
  • ½ozcheddar cheese,cut into long sticks
  • 2tbsponions,chopped
  • 1cupprepared sauerkraut,drained, roughly chopped
  • 4slicesbacon
  • vegetable oil
  • 4long hot dog buns


  1. Prepare 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Brush the grates of your grill with vegetable oil so that the hot dogs don’t stick. Place the stuffed hot dogs on the grill, stuffing side down.

  7. 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.

  8. During the last minute of cooking, open up the hot dog buns and place them open-side down on the grill to lightly toast.

  9. Remove the hot dogs and buns from the grill. Remove the toothpicks from the hot dogs. Place the hot dogs in the buns and serve. Enjoy!
