  • 8 hot dogs
  • 4 slices (¾ oz. each) American cheese, cut into 6 strips each
  • 1 can (8 oz.) Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls


  • Heat oven to 375°F. Slice hot dogs down the middle to create a slit, leaving about ½” of space at either end and being careful not to pierce all the way. Insert 3 strips of cheese into each sliced hot dog.
