  4. Pierce hot dogs with a fork several times. Wrap each hot dog with a single slice of bacon. Heat a sauté pan over medium-high. Place bacon wrapped hot dog in pan and cook, turning often, until bacon is crispy and has rendered most of its fat. Place bacon wrapped hot dog into bun. Top each with 1 ounce of gruyere cheese. Place these hot dogs on an oven proof pan and place in broiler quickly to melt cheese. Remove from broiler and top each with one ounce of celery relish. Serve immediately.
