Chili Cheese Dog Bake Ingredients

chili cheese dog bake raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 (8-count) can original crescent rolls
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans of chili
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt (or garlic powder)
  • Fresh parsley (for garnish)

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHEESE: You could add grated cheese over the top of the hot dog casserole bake also. Wait until the top of the crescent dogs has browned, and then cover with grated cheese and bake until cheese is melted making sure the crescents have cooked on the bottom of the dish.

CHILI: Use canned chili or your own chili recipe instead for this hot dog bake.

HOT DOGS: You can use whichever your favorite hot dogs brand is in this recipe.

How to Make This Chili Cheese Dog Bake Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 375°F.

STEP TWO: Remove the crescent rolls from the packaging, roll them out, and separate them into individual triangles.

PRO TIP:

A pizza cutter is a great tool to cut the crescent roll dough rather than a knife. Give it a quick spray with nonstick spray so that none of the sticky dough gets stuck.

STEP THREE: Place one slice of cheese followed by one hot dog onto the widest end of the crescent roll.

STEP FOUR: Roll the cheese and hot dog into the crescent roll and set aside.

STEP FIVE: Arrange wrapped crescent dogs in a 9×13 glass baking dish. You may only be able to fit 7 dogs if you wish to keep them in one line as we did. Leave ½-inch or so between each dog to allow room for the dough to puff.

STEP SIX: Spread the chili in the available space around the crescent dogs. You may not use both full cans of chili and can heat any leftovers and serve alongside the baked chili cheese dogs.

PRO TIP:

Place the chili around the wrapped crescent dogs instead of under the crescent dogs for the best results on cooking everything through completely.

STEP SEVEN: Melt butter in a small dish and stir in the garlic salt/powder. Use a pastry brush to brush the melted butter mixture over the tops of the exposed crescent rolls.

PRO TIP:

The garlic butter gives the tops of the crescents some flavor and a bit of sheen. You could also brush the butter sauce on after the casserole has finished baking OR omit the butter sauce.

STEP EIGHT: Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until crescents appear golden brown on both the top and the bottom.

PRO TIP:

The crescent rolls take a bit longer to bake on the bottom than it takes to heat the chili through and brown the top of the crescent rolls. If you use a clear glass baking dish, you can check the bottom of the dish to make sure that the crescent rolls have browned on the bottom. If needed, place a sheet of aluminum foil over the top of the casserole dish if the crescents are becoming too brown and the bottoms are not yet done.
