“I saw a similar dish as an actual hot dog meal recipe at a local diner recently. The idea inspired me to create a Tailgate Party friendly finger food.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 hot dogs, your favorite variety cut in half
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crescent rolls, the refrigerated variety
  • 8 tablespoons Cheese Whiz
  • 8 large potato chips, crumbled
  • 1 cup chili, use your favorite
  • 1 large pickle, sliced into thin slices
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt


  1. Unroll the 8 crescent rolls. Place a TBS of Cheese Whiz lengthwise down the center of each roll. Sprinkle potato chips along center of crescent roll lengthwise.
  2. Add 1 piece of hot dog and 1 strip of pickle to the top of each piece of pastry and roll, like you would a regular crescent roll.
  3. Sprinkle the top of each roll with Garlic Salt.
