Bacon and Cheese Frankfurters

Close up of two fully cooked frankfurters, each oozing melted cheese and wrapped in bacon secured by a toothpick.

These bacon-wrapped frankfurters were a childhood favorite weekend lunch, but also make a simple appetizer. Mini frankfurters are stuffed with cheddar cheese, then wrapped in bacon. They are fun for the kids, but adults will enjoy them too.

These days I like to make the bacon-wrapped frankfurter on the BBQ or smoker and use them as an appetizer or part of a bigger grazing meal.

Although they can be made with normal bacon, the smoked streaky bacon does produce a wonderful result. You can also experiment with different types of cheese, such as adding an extra kick by using a cheese made with chilis, garlic, or even wasabi.
