The reason why our chili cheese hot dog bake is so popular is because it can serve many people at once. It’s so quick and easy to roll a bunch of cheese and hot dogs in crescent rolls and bake them. In fact, during our taste test, we did two batches at once and it literally took just a few minutes. The problem was we had two huge platters that needed to be eaten!
The key is to bake the rolls covered in foil first, then continue baking them without the foil. This ensures that the dough cooks all the way through, leaving you with warm tender crescent dough filled with the best chili cheese dogs on Earth! They’re the perfect appetizer or full meal!

Perfect for Game Day parties! When it's time to add the chili, don't pour it over the crescent dogs because it will keep the crescent dough from cooking all the way. Just add the chili around the base of the crescent dogs for the 2nd part of the bake.
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Rinse hot dogs and pat dry.
- Open the can of crescent dough and roll out dough. Cut the dough into 8 equal squares.
- Roll 1 slice of cheese around 1 hot dog. Roll 1 square of crescent dough around the cheese/hot dog. Repeat for all 8 hot dogs. Gently press the seams of the crescent dough down.
Melt butter and then add minced garlic. Place hot dogs in pan, spaced apart to leave room for chili later. Brush top of dough with the garlic butter. Save remaining garlic butter.
Cover with foil and bake for about 35 minutes. Remove foil, add chili around the base of the hot dogs and continue baking un-covered for about 10 minutes OR until tops of dough are golden brown and chili is heated through.
Optional- For extra garlic butter goodness, brush remaining garlic butter on top of dough and top with parsley. Enjoy!
