    Regarding Number 7, this is wrong. (lol) You first slice the hot dog halfway through lengthwise, push a piece of cheese in there, then wrap the cheese-filled hot dog in bacon, then broil at 450 for 15-20 minutes, or grill, until your bacon is done. These are called Texas Tommies. It’s a Philly thing.
