Chili Dog Ring

 Chili Dog Ring

Want a crowd Pleasing game day recipe that people can’t resist?  How about some comfort food on a cold winter day?  Who doesn’t love pigs in a blanket?  And everyone loves Chili. Why not mix the two and come up with a dish that will work for any occasion? 

Chili Dog Ring

12 hot dogs
2-3 packages crescent roll dough
1 small onion, diced
1 pound ground beef
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ cup tomato sauce
½ cup ketchup
½ teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon sugar
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
¼ cup finely sliced green onion (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut hot dogs into thirds. 

Open your cans of dough and lay out the triangles. Cut the triangles in half lengthwise so you have roughly 1-inch by 5-inch triangle slices.  A pizza cutter is good for this.

Roll crescent dough around hot dog thirds, starting with the wider end of the dough.  Arrange wrapped hot dogs standing up on end around a 10-inch skillet or baking dish in two tight circles, leaving a hole in the center of the skillet for your chili and cheese later.

Bake 15-20 minutes, until dough puffs up and becomes golden brown. Remove skillet from oven and set aside.  

In another large skillet, sauté onions until translucent.  Add the ground beef to the onions, then season with salt and pepper. Continue stirring ground beef until no longer pink.  Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, cumin, chili powder, and sugar to the ground beef and onions. Stir until everything is well mixed. Simmer 10 minutes. 

Spoon the chili to fill the hole in center of the skillet with hot dogs surrounding it.  

Top with shredded cheddar cheese and bake another 5 minutes or until cheese is well melted.  Top with diced green onion before serving.
