This is not just a meal kids enjoy, but it’s one they can help make, too! It’s super duper simple. Grab your ingredients, show them how it’s done, and let them have a go at it. You’ll find yourself making this hot dog recipe a few times a month and perfect for gatherings like game night.

I’m all about easy meals that my kids will eat. Aren’t we all? The quicker I can get in and out of the kitchen and have my kiddos fed, the better. If you love hot dogs as much as we do, you’ll also have to try our Homemade Corn Dog Recipe.

There are several hot dog varieties ranging from pork, beef, turkey and tofu! So anyone can enjoy this recipe. Our chili cheese hot dog bake is so popular for parties because it’s super quick and a crowd pleaser.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Chili. We used canned chili for this because it’s quick and easy and has good flavor. Feel free to make our easy homemade chili recipe.
  • Pizza Dough. The pre-made, refrigerated can.
  • Hot Dogs. We like the all-beef best, but use whatever you’ve got.
  • Cheese Sticks. Cheddar Cheese sticks that are individually packaged. You know, like the kind you put in the kiddos lunch boxes.
  • Butter. For the top of the dough.
  • Garlic Powder. Optional but adds good flavor.
  • Parsley. Also optional. If you don’t have any it’s OK, you can still make this.

How To Make Chili Cheese Hot Dog Bake

  1. Prep. Preheat your oven and pour the whole can of chili in a dish.
  2. Wrap. Roll out your pizza dough and cut into four pieces. Place a hot dog in the center of each piece of dough with half a cheese stick (cut lengthwise) on either side. Wrap the dough around the center.
  3. Bake. Place the hot dogs over the chili and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the dough starts to brown.
  4. Finish. When they come out, spread some melted butter with garlic and parsley on top for flavor.

How Long Do These Last?

This is definitely a recipe that you don’t want to save for later. It tastes best, fresh. If you save this for left-overs, they become quite soggy.

What to Serve with Chili Cheese Dog Casserole

We typically serve this casserole with french fries or potato chips. Try a quick and easy salad ,pineapple coleslaw or some nachos.

For a warm vegetable, we’ll make steamed broccoli or our baked zucchini spears.
