    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Using a knife, make a slit along the entire length of the frankfurter that's about 3/4 of the way through it. Break the cheese slice into 2 pieces and stuff each piece into the slit in the frankfurter. Wrap the bacon slice around the frankfurter in a spiral fashion, then secure all with a skewer. Place on a baking tray.
    3. Bake at 200 C / Gas 6 for 11 to 15 minutes, or until bacon is crisp.

    Great recipe! Brought back old memories for me, also. I am the chef & Aunt in a busy household with my brother, his wife and their 5 kids. I mention that because my sister-in-law wasn't too fond of the "Mad Dog" idea because of the high fat content. So, we compromised: Regular hotdogs, reduced fat cheese and (preheated) turkey bacon. They cooked up nicely with a lot less grease. **Here's my twist on it though: I wrapped them in cresent rolls before baking, as my mother used to do. We then used our condiments as a dipping sauce rather then a topping. (I wrapped mine with chopped onions inside) :-) The kids definatly loved to help make & eat these (as did my brother) & we'll make them again!  -  25 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    i like this recipe so did my neice, the only thing was that the bacon didn't get cripsy like i thought. It could be because i used thicker bacon, maybe next will use regular bacon. I did put it under the broiler for a few minutes and that did help but not to my moms liking but she likes her bacon really crispy. Diffinitely will do this again. thanks  -  22 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made these for a 4th of July cookout and they were a huge hit! I used beef hot dogs and american cheese. I also used pre-cooked bacon. Instead of wrapping and securing the bacon, I just placed a strip on top of each dog while baking. Served with catsup, mustard and finely chopped onions. Yum yum - I'm a convert now - it'll be hard doing back to eating plain old hot dogs now.  -  06 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
