Bacon-Wrapped Chili Cheese Dogs

We're celebrating National Chili Dog Day, the last Thursday of July each year.  My family loves this recipe when I use Johnsonville Stadium Brats.  But, of course, they would eat nearly anything that is wrapped in crispy bacon!

8 hot dogs or brats, fully cooked
8 strips center-cut bacon
Your favorite turkey or beef chili, warmed
Hoagie buns, toasted
Shredded sharp cheddar

Wrap dogs with bacon and grill over medium high heat until bacon is crisped all around and dogs are heated throughout.  Place dogs into buns, then smother with warm chili.  Top with shredded cheddar and serve.
