These are the ultimate late-night snack but they’re also great for game day or as a party appetizer. You could even make a teeny-tiny bite-size version with cocktail wieners! You’d just need to adjust baking time accordingly.

Nacho Crescent Dogs

30 minutes to prepare serves 4


  • 1 tube refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 2 cups crushed Doritos
  • 4 hot dogs
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll the tube of crescent dough and put two triangles together to create a rectangle. Pinch together the perforated edges to ensure there are no gaps in the dough.
  3. Place the cheese in the center of the rectangle, then place a hot dog on top. Fold in the short edges of the dough and then roll dough completely over the hot dog, pinching edges together to make a tight seal.
  4. Repeat with remaining hot dogs. Brush each rolled dog with milk and then roll in the crushed Doritos.
  5. Place hot dogs on prepared baking sheet and bake until dough is cooked through and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately with or without your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!
