Wittenberg splits recipe details
This is the way Tanya Nueske and her family grew up eating hot dogs. They’re not hard to make and they really are darned good. To restate the by-now familiar: the better the buns and hot dogs, the better these are going to taste. Take note that in Wisconsin “cheddar” always means orange cheese, never white. It won’t taste any different, but if you want to accurately replicate Tanya Nueske’s early life experience, white cheese just really won’t do.
Ready in: 25 mins
- 12 thick slices Nueske’s applewood-smoked bacon
- 6 jumbo hot dogs, split lengthwise
- 6 ounces sharp cheddar (the older the better), sliced
- 1 large dill pickle, sliced thinly lengthwise
- 6 hot dog buns, toasted
Preparation methodPrep: 10 mins | Cook: 15 mins
1. Preheat oven to broil at 375°F.
2. With a sharp paring knife, cut a line lengthwise along each hot dog, leaving a thin strip at the bottom so that the dog stays in one piece. Lay the sliced cheddar inside the split, then place a long slice of pickle atop the cheese. Wrap each hot dog in 2 slices of bacon and secure the ends of each strip with a toothpick.
3. Place on a foil-topped baking sheet and broil for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the bacon is nicely browned.
4. You can put your buns under the broiler for the last 2 minutes to toast them, too. Take out the toothpicks, put the dogs in the buns and eat ’em while they’re hot.
