Dinner Shortcuts: Crescent dogs

Crescent dogs are a delicious treat that kids and adults will both love. We took buttery crescent rolls and wrapped them around all beef hot dogs that have been stuffed with sharp cheddar cheese. They are perfect for a dinner on the go or even an easy weekend lunch.

Cheesy crescent dogs

Yields 8 crescent dogs


  • 1 (8 count) refrigerator crescent rolls
  • 8 all-beef hot dogs
  • 4 slices cheese cut into long pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls and set aside.
  3. Cut a slit down the middle of each hot dog, making sure to leave the hot dog intact but making the slit wide enough to stuff with cheese.
  4. Insert cheese into each slit and place the hot dog at the large end of the crescent roll. Then tightly roll up the hot dog and place, cheese side up, on a rimmed baking sheet.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes until the crescent is fully cooked and browned.
