“A lighter twist on two happy hour favorites. A grilled cheese wrapped turkey dog served with fresh jalapenos and a drizzle of sriracha and mustard. With inspiration from Ross Mathews.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (1 1/2 ounce) uncured turkey hot dogs
  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter, spread
  • 2 sharp cheddar cheese, deli slices
  • hot sauce (sriracha)
  • Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh jalapeno


  1. Cook turkey hot dogs on medium heat on a greased skillet moving periodically until brown on all sides and heated through the center. Spread buttery spread on one side of bread.
  2. Place bread, butter side down on a large skillet or griddle. Place a slice of cheese on each slice of bread. Heat until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Place hot dog in the center of each slice of bread bread. Garnish the hot dog with a drizzle of sriracha and mustard. Wrap bread around the hot dog and use a toothpick to secure the bread into place. Top with chopped jalapeno.
