We never use hot dog rolls anymore. These are sooo good and easy to make. My grandkids and kids love these. We all love them. Your kids will love you forever. The egg wash gives them that nice golden look. I hope you enjoy them. See the cheese dripping out... mmm.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These crescent wrapped hot dogs are a tasty alternative to a plain hot dog. Kids will love these. We love the idea of slicing the hot dog and stuffing it with American cheese. It makes the inside gooey and cheesy. Brushing the crescent dough with an egg wash browns the dough when baked. You can dip these in your favorite sauce (like ketchup or mustard), chili, or even nacho cheese. Yum!

    Slice cheese in strips. Slice hot dog down middle and stuff cheese down in middle. I make them with cheese and without cheese... it depends if you are in a hurry.

    I stretch them out as far as you can width and length without ripping.
  • Hot dog on crescent roll dough.
    Then with the wide end, lay the hot dog down.
  • Rolling the stuffed hot dogs in crescent dough.
    Wrap around all dog moving it up and down. Seal seams as you go.
  • Brushing crescent dough with an egg wash.
    Then mix egg and water. Brush over the crescent dough on hot dogs.
  • Hot dogs baking in the oven.
    Bake in an oven preheated to 375 following the time on package directions.
