Chili Cheese Hot Dog Bake


Today I was thinking about hot dogs……not just any hot dogs. I was thinking about Chili dogs.  With cheese!  But I didn’t have any hot dog buns.  You can’t have chili dogs without a hot dog bun.  Or can you?   Sure you can….how about a Chili Hot Dog bake!  You get the chili, the dog, the cheese and a big puffy bun all in one simple to make casserole!  And it’s soooooo good!   

Chili Cheese Hot Dog Bake

4 hot dogs 
8 Sargento String Cheese (cheddar or Colby Jack) 
1 can Pillsbury pizza dough
1 (15 oz.) can chili (or 2 cups of your own leftover Chili)
1/4 cup butter, melted 
1 teaspoon garlic powder 
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a 10 x 10 inch square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Heat your chili in a saucepan until hot and then pour into your prepared baking dish. Spread evenly.

Remove the cheese from the wrappers and set aside. 

Open the can of pizza dough and lay it out on a cutting board. Stretch the dough out to a flat rectangle and cut into 4 equal sections. Lay a hot dog on each section at the upper end. Lay cheese on each side of the hot dog.

Starting at one end of the dough, roll up the hot dog and the cheese keeping the cheese on each side of the hot dog.  

Place the wrapped hot dog on top of the chili, seam side down.

Mix butter, garlic powder and parsley in a small bowl. Brush the dough lightly with some the butter mixture.  You will use the butter again later.

Bake hot dogs and chili in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the chili is bubbling, cheese is melted, and dough is golden brown. 

Remove from oven and brush the tops of the dough with remaining butter mixture.  Enjoy!
