  • 8 hot dogs
  • 8 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 1 jar of pickled jalapeño slices
  • 1 can of crescent roll dough (8 count)
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Optional: ketchup, mustard, and relish for serving


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Hot Dogs:
    • Lay out the hot dogs on a cutting board.
    • Place a slice of cheddar cheese and a few pickled jalapeño slices on each hot dog.
  3. Wrap the Hot Dogs:
    • Open the can of crescent roll dough and separate it into 8 triangles.
    • Place a hot dog with cheese and jalapeños at the wide end of each triangle. Roll the dough around the hot dog, starting from the wide end and tucking the sides as you go to enclose the cheese and jalapeños.
  4. Egg Wash:
    • Brush the tops of the wrapped hot dogs with the beaten egg. This will give them a nice golden color when baked.
  5. Bake:
    • Place the wrapped hot dogs on the prepared baking sheet.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crescent roll dough is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  6. Serve:
    • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
    • Serve with ketchup, mustard, and relish on the side, if desired.
