Ingredients

  • 4 bun-length uncured turkey franks, such as JENNIE-O®
  • 4 hot dog buns, split
  • ½ Cup marinara sauce
  • ½ 8-ounce ball fresh mozzarella cheese, torn
  • ½ Cup roasted red bell pepper strips
  • ⅓ Cup basil pesto

Directions

Preheat the grill to medium heat. Grill the franks according to package directions. Grill the buns, cut-side down, until golden brown.

Spread the marinara sauce inside the buns. Add some mozzarella and bell peppers to each bun. Place on the grill, and close the lid. Grill until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove from the grill. Add the franks to the buns and top each with some pesto.

Mozzarella Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Mozzarella Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
