Chili Dog Bake

Chili Dog Bake

I saw a recipe on Pillsbury’s website that sounded like the perfect way to use up the pizza dough I had in the refrigerator. Luckily, I also happened to have hot dogs, cheese, and chili. I adapted the recipe a bit by using two cans of chili and I used the dough for five hot dogs instead of four. I also heated up the chili before placing the wrapped hot dogs on top so the hot chili would start cooking the bottom of the dough. Brushing the top with garlic butter made them extra decadent but make sure to use unsalted butter since the other ingredients are already salty. The boys said this chili dog bake was delicious and most definitely blog-worthy.

Cut the refrigerator dough into four or five equal pieces, depending on the size of the baking dish you are using. Place two slices of cheese down on the dough along with a hot dog. Roll up. Repeat with the remaining dough, cheese, and hot dogs.

  1. It’s nice when a plan comes together and you have everything on hand. Looks good and has the components for a good hot dog. I can see the kids especially liking it.

  2. Looks like fun food, especially for kids (or kids at heart)!

  3. 5 stars
    As a Kid my favorite meal was pigs in a blanket. This recipe is definitely the adult version and would fill not only the kids but the hungry husband too.

  4. i have NEVER seen hot dogs in a casserole-type thing like this but it looks crazy good!!
