Cheese inside a hot dog?

Nothing beats a good grilled hot dog. This isn't much of a recipe but as to how you can create so many variations into topping a hot dog. You can top it with so many things or you can have them plain in the bun.


But first to answer that the question that is the title of this post. Yes, Cheese inside a hot dog. Not wrapped or strategically placed. I mean literally inside the casing embedded with the meat. There's this product from the Philippines that has hot dogs with cheese inside them. I don't know how they do it, but there's cheddar within the meat when you bite into it. Take a bite and you can see the cheese slightly ooze out. Crazy huh? I haven't seen this anywhere else, but I may be wrong.

I grilled mine with good ol' Georgie. I topped it with some of the usual mustard and relish. It's a must for me no question about it. When I was a child I was all about the ketchup. I still like it. But my tastes have changed the older I get. Then I remembered I still had just little bit left of the tomato red sauce from my spaghetti. So that would be the "chili" portion. I'm glad to say I don't have any more left of that. I was beginning to wonder when I'd finish it off.  Finally to top it off, I cooked up some balsamic caramelized onion. Beats going out to Pink's (though, this wouldn't stop me from going to Pink's for one of their famed hot dogs).  Cheese is optional.

Can you see the melted cheese within the hot dog lightly oozing out in that last picture?It's not much, but it's definitely there.

I'm still on the fence about cheese-stuffed hot dog but I love the look of those caramelized onions!

Sometimes hot dogs are the only way to go. I'm not sure if I'd like cheese inside my hot dog, but your hot dogs look delicious!

By the way, I forgot to add something on Ruhlman's ratio for pancake batter. You should think of the ratio in terms of ounces. 1 large egg = 2 ounces. 1 cup = 8 fluid ounces.

Holy crap, I haven't seen those since I was a kid. We used to be able to get them in Boston. I need to scour the local stores and see if I can find them again, they're awesome.

Love the caramelized onion on there, I didn't do that when I was a kid. Heh.

I love a good dog now and again - I have seen these in the store here in NY, not this brand though.

I haven't had a cheese dog in so long! I have such a craving. Oscar Mayer makes a cheese dog with a tunnel of cheese inside. It was the only hot dog I would ever eat. Now I MUST have one!

When I was a kid, my cousins introduced me to these things. I'm not so sure they are a good idea, but they do look tasty.

tavolini said...

Oh! My mom used to get these!! I honestly think Oscar Meyer makes a version of them. Wow, blast from the past, there :)

That would work for me. I put a slit down mine and then throw the cheese in the slit.
