Whether you’re tailgating, watching the big game at home or just planning a family movie night, this Texas Chili Dog is guaranteed to please. Delicious Ball Park Brand® Franks are even better when topped with hearty Texas chili, freshly grated cheese and chopped sweet onion. You can always add a few slices of jalapeno, if you like it hot. Tater Tots or Fritos make the best sides.
1 can (14 to 15 oz) chili, heated
1 can Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust
4 Cheddar cheese sticks
4 all-beef hot dogs
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 9-inch square or 11×7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Pour hot chili into dish; spread evenly.
Unroll dough; cut into 4 strips. Cut 1 cheese stick in half lengthwise; place 1 half on each side of 1 hot dog. Wrap pizza dough strip around cheese and hot dog, overlapping slightly in center. Repeat with remaining dough strips, cheese sticks, and hot dogs. Place wrapped hot dogs on top of hot chili. (Chili must be hot.)
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until dough is light golden brown.
Meanwhile, in a small microwavable cup, microwave butter on High until melted. Stir in garlic powder and parsley.
Remove baking dish from the oven. Brush on top of each cheese dog with butter mixture. Serve immediately.
