Baked Chili Cheese Dogs

Summer is here and I have been busy being outdoors and entertaining my children.  I thought that I would make something fun for the kids and at the same time, easy for me.  Chili cheese dogs, stromboli style came to mind.  I made use of some frozen dough balls by defrosting them in the refrigerator the night before.  And I made these really fun and tasty treats.  My children were VERY impressed:)

Baked Chili Cheese Dogs

Frozen, uncooked dinner rolls (2 dough balls for each chili dog that you want to make)
American cheese slices (1 for each dog)
Your favorite brand of chili, or homemade if you have it
Hot dogs

The night before, put the desired amount of frozen dough balls in a plastic bag and defrost in the refrigerator. You will need two for every chili dog.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Squish two dough balls to make one larger one and briefly knead on a lightly floured board.  Set aside and let it rest for 20 minutes. 
Roll out into a rectangle
Spread about a tablespoon of chili in the center of the dough.  Cut a cheese slice in half and lay both halves over the chili.  Starting from the top, roll the dough over the hot dog.  The ends of the hot dogs should be peeking out of the sides. Pinch the end closed and lay them on a parchment paper or Silpat lined baking sheet, seam side down. 
Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until the tops of the bread are a golden brown. 
Cool briefly on a wire rack and serve.
