Wisconsin Badger Cheesy Hot Dog

A few years ago the Big 10 basketball tournament was held here in Indianapolis. As part of the event, the Levy restaurant group in Chicago produced unique hot dogs that highlight each of the Big 10 teams. I came across a copy of the list of the dogs recently, and just had to make each of them. The Wisconsin Badger cheesy hot dog packs on the cheese and… Cheetos on a hot dog?! Brilliant! All topped with delicious pepper relish. Crunchy yumminess!
