Boil or grill the hot dogs. Arrange hot dog buns on a baking sheet.
Cut hot dogs in half lengthwise, cutting almost through but leaving them intact along the bottom.
Lay each hot dog open-faced in a bun. Evenly divide chopped bacon and shredded cheese among the hot dogs.
Broil at 450°F for about 2 minutes, until cheese is melted, and bun is toasted.
Serve with ketchup, mustard and pickle relish, if desired.
Hot dog buns are made from a an all-purpose flour with an average protein content. This type of flour is normally enriched and made from a blend of hard and soft wheats. When a flour is enriched, it means millers add nutrients back in that were lost during production. These nutrients include folic acid (a key vitamin that can help curb neural tube defects in unborn children), vitamin B and iron. Learn more about Wheat Nutrition.
