Campfire – Chili Cheese Crescent Hot Dog Bake
Saw this amazingly bad for you recipe on facebook and knew this was something I wanted to try.
We decided to modify it for the campfire, and it mostly went ok! Definitely a learning curve and lucky for you, I’ve done all the mistakes for your benefit!
Basics – package of crescent rolls, hotdogs, slices of cheese, butter with grated garlic and a can of hormel chili – hot!
Garlic and butter melting on the campfire with the can of chili
4 hotdog version of the rolls!
Meal in process! Next time remember to cover with foil!
Final result! This time a bit charred – next time will be perfect!
Thoughts – don’t need the cheese, chili on the camp fire is amazing!
- 4 hot dogs
- 4 slices American cheese or 3/4 cup shredded cheese (optional)
- 1 can refrigerated crescent dough sheet
- 1-2 cans (15.5 oz ea) chili , depending on how much chili you like
- 3 tablespoons Butter (approximately), melted
- 1-2 cloves garlic , minced
- Pop the can of chili and put it on the campfire grate. (stir occasionally)
- Place foil in a frying pan
- Spray with pam
- Open the can of crescent dough and roll out dough. Use the cuts to determine 4 dough areas.
- Roll 1 slice of cheese (if using) around 1 hot dog. Roll 1 square of crescent dough around the cheese/hot dog. Repeat for all 4 hot dogs. Gently press the seams of the crescent dough down.
- Melt butter and then add minced garlic. (ramekin on the camp fire is a delightful way to do it!) Place hot dogs in prepared pan. Brush top of dough with the garlic butter. Save remaining garlic butter.
- Cover with foil and bake on fire for about 15 minutes.
- Flip hotdogs, re-cover and cook for 15 minutes or until tops of dough are golden brown and cooked.
- Place hotdog on plate and pour chili over top - eat and enjoy!
- Can expand to the 8 hotdogs and use less dough for each dog.
- Chili on the campfire is delicious!
- The butter and garlic really make it!
- I melted my butter and garlic at home and reheated on the campfire when we go there.
- Careful with the fire, crescent rolls can burn quickly
Next up – try it in the crockpot! (remember, just pop a chop stick in the cover to make the crescent roll not gooie!
