How to make Chili Cheese Dog Bake Dinner
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.
Step 2: Grease with cooking spray a 9-inch square or 11 x 7-inch (2 quarts) glass baking dish.
Step 3: Pour and evenly spread the hot chili into the dish.
Step 4: Unroll and cut the dough into strips.
Step 5: Slice the cheese stick in half lengthwise and put 1 half of the cheese on each side of the hotdog.
Step 6: Wrap with pizza dough strip, slightly overlapping in the middle, the cheese and hotdog.
Step 7: Do this for the rest and when done, transfer the wrapped hotdogs over the hot chili. Make sure that chili must be hot.
Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the dough is light golden brown.
Step 9: In the meantime, place the butter in a small microwavable cup to melt in the microwave on high. Then, stir in the garlic powder and parsley.
Step 10: Once the chili dog bake is done, remove from the oven and brush the top with the melted butter mixture. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
