Ingredients

FOR THE PIMENTO CHEESE, PURÉE:

FOR THE HOT DOGS, WRAP:

Use regular, center-cut bacon here — thick slices won’t cook through on the grill.

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium. Brush grill grate with oil.

For the pimento cheese, purée Cheddar, mayonnaise, and cream cheese in a food processor; add pimentos and pulse to combine. Season pimento cheese with Tabasco.

For the hot dogs, wrap bacon around hot dogs and secure each end with toothpicks. Grill hot dogs until bacon is crisp; remove toothpicks before serving. Grill buns until lightly toasted, 1 minute.

Serve hot dogs in buns with romaine and pimento cheese.
