BBQ Worm Sandwich or Sand “witch” – how we like to call it!!

8 Turkey hot dogs, each cut lengthwise into 6 thin strips
1/2 Cup Homemade barbecue sauce ( see recipe below)
8 Slices (optional) Real cheddar cheese
8 Sandwich buns, split, toasted
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat hot dog strips over medium-high heat until strips begin to curl up. Gently stir in barbecue sauce until hot dog strips are coated. Heat until bubbly. Place slices of cheese on bottom halves of toasted buns. Top with curly turkey dog mixture, and cover with top halves of buns. This is really fun and really looks like worms!
