Bacon Jalapeño Cheese Dog

Bacon Jalapeño Cheese Dog

If you are like me, the thought of anything with Jalapeños or Habaneros in it just makes your mouth water.  That is why I had to try out the Bacon Jalapeño Cheese Dog.  Made with thick cut premium bacon, Nathans hot dogs, and premium cheddar cheese, this is sure to be a unique eat you will come back to over and over.  Now, what is so special about this Bacon Jalapeño Cheese Dog?  Well, let’s take a look.



For this recipe, I am going to be starting off with the best hot dogs on the market, Nathans.  If you disagree, you are just plain wrong and I feel sorry for you.  Nathans is an American staple and worth our praise.
