Campfire – Chili Cheese Crescent Hot Dog Bake

Posted in : Appetizers, Camping, Recipe on by : Nicole

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!

  1. Pop the can of chili and put it on the campfire grate. (stir occasionally)
  2. Place foil in a frying pan
  3. Spray with pam
  4. Open the can of crescent dough and roll out dough. Use the cuts to determine 4 dough areas.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Cover with foil and bake on fire for about 15 minutes.
  8. Flip hotdogs, re-cover and cook for 15 minutes or until tops of dough are golden brown and cooked.
  9. Place hotdog on plate and pour chili over top - eat and enjoy!
  1. Can expand to the 8 hotdogs and use less dough for each dog.
  2. Chili on the campfire is delicious!
  3. The butter and garlic really make it!
  4. I melted my butter and garlic at home and reheated on the campfire when we go there.
  5. Careful with the fire, crescent rolls can burn quickly

Verdict – this is a pretty quick and easy camping dinner!
