Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese? I know I do! My children do too. So does KB. He’s really into this grilled cheese restaurant that opened a location near us. The other location is about 30 minutes away but this one is about 7 minutes, which may prove to be dangerous. I mean it’s bread and cheese and it tastes so good…yet utterly sinful!
I went on a grilled cheese bender at home (I should probably make a grilled cheese category for the blog that’s how much of a bender I went on). And I can’t really claim this recipe, I happened to see a video on the internet for a hot dog grilled cheese (except they used a hot dog bun). So one day, when KB and I were going out and I needed something for the kids to eat, I knew I had hot dogs, bread and cheese so I threw this together. I think the only thing I would do differently is either have a ketchup dipping sauce next time or spread ketchup on the inside before I add the cheese. *I did have a bite of the sandwich…you know…for quality control…
Start by placing buttered bread butter side down in a skillet over medium heat. Add shredded cheese and sliced green onions (optional).
Meanwhile heat hot dogs. Slice into 3 slices. Lay on top of the bread.
Add more shredded cheese.
Top with more buttered bread, butter side up. Cook over medium heat for about 5-6 minutes.
Flip over. Cook for another 5-6 minutes until outside is crispy and inside the cheese is melty and gooey.
Serve and enjoy! *Ketchup dipping sauce would be good.
4 slices bread
sliced green onions
2 hot dogs
In a medium frying pan over medium heat, lay two slices of bread butter side down. Add shredded cheese and sliced green onions. Meanwhile, heat 2 hot dogs in microwave. Slice in 3 slices. Add hot dogs to bread, top with more shredded cheese and another slice of buttered bread, butter side up. Cook for about 5-6 minutes over medium heat and then flip. Cook for another 5-6 minutes until the outside is golden brown and crispy and the inside is melted and gooey. Serve with ketchup.
