Try this simple, quick and easy version. Toasting the bun makes all the difference.
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 hot dogs
- 4 hot dog buns, sliced almost through
- 4 slices cheese (optional)
- Thin strips of red and yellow peppers
- Onion rings
- Mustard and ketchup
Toss the peppers ,onion rings and hotdogs in light olive oil.
Slice the hot dog length-wise about 3/4 of the way through; place onto the grill with the cut-side down along with the hot dog bun. Turn frequently with tongs to prevent burning.
Meanwhile grill the peppers and onion until lightly browned.
Cook the bun and hot dog until golden brown; flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
Remove the bun from the pan and spread the mustard and /or ketchup over the inside of the bun and set aside.
Meanwhile, top the hot dog with the slice of cheese. Place a lid over the hot dog and continue cooking until the cheese has melted, about 1 minute.
Place the hot dog in the bun to serve.
Garnish with peppers and onions.
