Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 10 Minutes
4 hot dog buns
2 tbsp. butter, softened
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. onion powder
4 hot dogs, split lengthwise (be careful not to cut all the way through)
600g grated cheddar
4 Spring onions, chopped
Flatten hot dog buns with a rolling pin. In a small bowl, stir together butter, garlic powder, and onion powder. Spread all over outsides of buns.
In a large skillet over medium heat, sear hot dogs (working in batches if necessary) until charred, 2 minutes per side. Set aside.
Place a bun buttered-side down in skillet and top with ¼ of the cheddar cheese, a hot dog, a little more cheddar cheese, and ¼ of spring onions.
Cover and cook over medium heat until cheese melts, then use a spatula to close the bun. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 4 cheese dogs total.
MAKE THEM FANCIER with Gruyère and caramelized onions or provolone cheese and peppers.
