Crescent Jalapeno and Cheese Dogs


Crescent Jalapeno and Cheese Dogs

There’s no shame in using readily available refrigerated dough. In fact, I like having few cans of Philsbury refrigerated dough for emergency cases.  I have busy and crazy days, and just because I don’t have time to make my All Around Bread Dough, that doesn’t mean I cannot have freshly bake bread in the morning. This is the closest that I could get, and although I did not make the dough, I still consider this homemade breakfast. Afterall, I was the one prepared the filling, I was the one who wrapped the hotdogs, and I was the one who baked it, and It was made at home! So, it was homemade, agree?  I am making it sound as if this was a difficult task, but believe me when I tell you, it can never get easier than this.

Wrap Around Cheese and Hotdog Crescent

Earlier I said that the dough is very versatile, just like any homemade dough. The dough is not the only thing versatile here, even the recipe. This is not a strict recipe, I would say kind of fool-proof because it’s really hard to mess up a recipe this easy. The dough is supposedly the tough and time-consuming part to make, but that was already done for  us, thanks to Philsbury. All that needs to be done in terms of the dough is to unroll it from the can, how hard could that be? Another thing, the ingredients are not engraved in the stone. You can mix, match and change the filling to suit your preference. Meat lovers or vegetarian, the choice is yours.

Hotdog could be replaced by ham, turkey, bacon, cooked chicken and pepperoni would be nice too. For vegetarian option, spinach with cheese is a nice variation too. I wouldn’t suggest using any tomato as it could make the inside of the bread soggy because of the juice from the tomato. But you can add thin slices of bell peppers, pineapple, onion and it would like a mini pizza roll. So many ways to make it, I am pretty sure you have your own version and preference to enjoy it. Let’s get started!


  • 2 hot dogs – cut into 8 strips
  • 6 strips of string cheese
  • 1 can (200 g)  Pillsbury Weiner wrap or Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (The crescent rolls are pre-cut in triangle, if you us this, it is not advisable to use cheese in the filling as it will flood the baking sheet when it melt).


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.  Cut hotdog, cheese stick and jalapeno into strips. Adjust the length and size depending on the size of your dough.
  2. Separate dough into triangles/rectangle. Wrap dough triangle/rectangle around each hot dog, jalapeno and cheese. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, cheese side up. Crescent Dog
  3. Bake at 375°F. for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
