  • 8 hot dogs
  • 4 slices American cheese, each cut into 6 strips
  • 1 can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls


Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking over medium heat.

Slit hot dogs to within 1/2 inch of ends.

Insert 3 strips of cheese into each slit.

Separate dough into 8 triangles. Wrap 1 dough triangle around each hot dog.

Place crescent dogs on double thickness of heavy-duty foil sprayed with cooking spray, about 2 inches apart. Place foil on grill over indirect heat; cover.

Cook 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
