  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
  • Cut each hot dog in half width-wide into approx. 2-inch (5 cm) pieces).
  • Push a skewer through the center of each hot dog piece.
  • Slit each hot dog piece in a spiral pattern down the length of the skewer, spaced 3/4-inch (2 cm) apart.
  • Then gently pull the hot dog down to make the slit into a 3/4-inch (2 cm) gap (refer to video).
  • Break off some crescent roll dough and roll into a strip about 1/2-inch (1 cm) wide. Use it to fill the gaps on each skewer.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve with optional dipping sauce and enjoy!



  • Crescent roll hot dogs are easy to make ahead of time. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month. Then reheat in the oven at 375°F (190°C) until hot.
  • Keep the crescent roll dough refrigerated until use, as it will lose some of its puffiness at room temperature.
  • This recipe will work with smoked sausages instead of hot dogs if you prefer.
  • For a vegetarian option, simple substitute veggie dogs directly for hot dogs.
  • Pillsbury crescent roll dough is only available in North America. If you live elsewhere, use refrigerated or frozen croissant dough instead.
