A favorite grilled crescent dogs recipe from Pillsbury requires 8 hot dogs, 4 slices of American cheese cut into 6-inch strips and 1 can of Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls. The recipe takes a total of 25 minutes and yields eight servings.
To make the grilled crescent dogs, slit the hot dogs to within 1/2 inch of their ends, and insert 3 cheese strips into each slit. Separate the dough into 8 triangles, and wrap 1 around each hot dog. Put the hot dogs 2 inches apart on a thick piece of foil coated with cooking spray, cover them, and place the foil on a heat gas or charcoal grill over indirect heat. Cook them for 12 to 15 minutes or until they're golden.
Other Pillsbury crescent dogs recipes include crescent dogs with the works, which is made from pepper jack cheese, beans and bacon, and Cuban-style stuffed crescent dogs, which require Swiss cheese, ham and pickles. To make the stuffed crescent dogs, follow the beginning steps of the grilled crescent dogs recipe, and place one ham slice on each triangle of dough before wrapping it around the hot dog. Place the hot dogs on an ungreased cookie sheet with the cheese side facing up, and cook them for 14 to 17 minutes or until they're golden. Top with dill pickle slices skewered with toothpicks to hold them down.
