If you’re looking for a super quick, satisfying and tasty snack that won’t break the carb bank, this is it.
I’ve seen this recipe floating around Instagram and decided to give it a try and I wasn’t disappointed. Though they did take some getting used, timing is key here, once I understood what I needed to do, everything was a breeze.
Now, learn from my mistake and let the cheese brown a little before rolling. I got a little too anxious and my roll-ups were just cheesy globs. Pictures to come when I do them right next time!
- Hot dogs
- Cheese (of your choice)
Heat a medium sized skillet and once hot, place either two grab-fuls of shredded cheese to the pan or two slices of cheese long-ways so your hotdog will be fully covered tip to tip.
While the cheese is melting, insert the skewers into your hot dogs. Once the bottom side of the cheese begins to brown, about two minutes on medium heat, grab your hot dog and use the edge of a spatula to lift the corner of the cheese and start rolling the hot dog in the cheese from one side of the pan to the other.
I roll the hot dogs a little slow so the cheese will stay in place once removed from the heat but the cheese should be rolled up fairly neatly to the hot dog. If your cheese is a little runny try letting it cook a little longer or try using less cheese on the next hot dog. In any case, if it’s not perfect it doesn’t matter because it’s still going to taste good!
Once your hot dog roll-ups are cooled, dip in your favorite sauce and enjoy! Sriracha-ketchup is really good on these as is a little dip in some ranch.
This recipe is as easy as it sounds so give it a try and let me know what you think!
