My daughter does not care for cheese. So for her hot dog I just skip the cheese and do everything else the same..I also make them on the stove top..

Since finding this recipe, I have tried them in various combinations. The bacon adds a wonderful extra flavor to these dogs. Thanks for sharing Myra!
