"What screams summer more than grilled hot dogs?" asks Maria Regakis of Somerville, Massachusetts. She places hot dogs in buns before topping them with a zesty cheese sauce and grilling them in a double layer of foil.


  • 1-1/2 cups shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup chopped seeded tomato
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 8 hot dog buns


  1. In a small bowl, combine the cheese, tomato, onion and relish. Place hot dogs in buns; top with cheese mixture.
  2. Wrap each hot dog in a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12x10 in.). Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 8-10 minutes or until heated through. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
