> 8 hot dog buns, toasted on grill if desired

Preheat grill over medium-high. On a paper towel-lined large plate, arrange 4 slices bacon. Cover with another layer of paper towels. Microwave 3–4 min., until crispy. Repeat with remaining 4 slices bacon. Cool slightly, then chop or crumble bacon into small pieces.
Meanwhile, place the hog dogs on grill and cook 6–8 min., until browned, turning occasionally. Microwave the mac and cheese according to package directions. Place 1 hot dog in each bun. Divide macaroni and cheese, bacon, and extra toppings, if using, among hot dogs.
