Crescent Roll Hot Dogs with a twist for a fun appetizer everyone will love, kids included! Served with your favorite dipping sauce, these crescent dogs are fabulous for parties, game days, and birthdays. You only need 3 ingredients: hot dogs, crescent rolls, and egg wash.
- 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.
