Tim Love’s Cheeseburger Dogs

20 oz. 80/20 lean ground beef
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. paprika
4 whole-wheat hot dog buns
4 white cheddar cheese slices

1. Preheat grill to high (450° to 500°). Place ground beef, mayonnaise, shallot, salt, pepper and paprika in a large bowl; gently mix with hands to combine. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions. Form each portion into the shape of a hot dog.

2. Place buns, cut side down, on unoiled grates; grill, uncovered, about 1 minute. Set aside. Place burger dogs on oiled grates; grill, covered, 4 minutes. Flip and cook, covered, until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of meat registers 160°, 5 to 6 minutes more. During final minute of grilling, top each burger dog with 1 cheese slice.

3. Place burger dogs inside grilled buns. Serve with your favorite condiments and toppings, like lettuce, tomato, onions and/or pickles.
