Nacho Crusted Crescent Dog

This is one of those recipes that reminds me of sitting around the table and having a family game night. You want something that is portable, but yet not something that will make you leave the intense board game that is going on. Well this recipe, found here, quick and easy and that you think you'll eat a ton of, but it is surprisingly filling. My husband picked up two and was struggling to finish the second and that guy can eat! The cheese is ooey and gooey on the inside and the chips provide a nice crunch on the outside. I think it is wonderful as is, but you can serve it with a dipping sauce if you would prefer. It is perfect for all ages, but I think the kids will especially love this one! In under 30 minutes your dinner will be hot and ready and you can focus on winning your family game night! It's a win-win for you! Enjoy! 

Nacho Crusted Crescent Dog

1 8 count can crescent rolls
4 slices cheese (I used Velveeta)
4 hot dogs (I used Nathan's all beef hot dogs)
Approximately 1 cup Nacho cheese chips, crushed
Approximately 1/2 cup Milk or water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees (or as directed on your crescent can). Prepare baking sheet with foil or Silpat.

Unroll your crescents, dividing into 4 rectangles. Place one slice of cheese on top followed by one hot dog. Fold the ends of the crescent rectangles over the hot dogs. Fold one of the longer ends over the hot dog and roll, sealing the edges. Roll the crescents in milk or water then dip into the crushed nachos, pressing slightly. Place on baking sheet seam side down.

Bake as directed on can (I had to let mine bake about 7 minutes more) and let sit 5 minutes before serving.
