Cheesy Camping Hot Dogs


for 6 servings

6 hot dogs
3 sticks string cheese, cut or peeled into thin strips
1 can pizza dough, cut length wise into 6 1 in (2 1/2 cm) wide strips


½ cup ketchup (120 g)
½ cup mustard (120 g)
½ cup relish (50 g)
½ white onion, finely chopped

Special Equipment

6 wooden skewers, 12 in (30 cm)


Insert a skewer into a hot dog. Cut a spiral by holding your knife at a diagonal to the top of the hot dog and rolling it down along a cutting board until you reach the bottom.
Wind a strip of cheese into the spiral groove on the hot dog. You may need 2 strips of cheese to fill the entire spiral.
Lay a strip of pizza dough on a cutting board and place the end of the hot dog skewer on a diagonal. Gently roll the hot dog in the dough, ensuring that the dough overlaps so no cheese leaks through. Gently remove the skewer and loosely wrap the hot dog in a sheet of foil so the dough has room to expand as it cooks. Repeat with the remaining hot dogs and dough.
Place the hot dogs over low heat on a campfire or grill. Let them cook for 10 minutes, check to see that the dough has puffed, then flip over to cook through, about 10 minutes more.
Let the hot dogs cool for a few minutes before carefully unwrapping, then serve with ketchup, mustard, relish, and onion.
