Crunchy Nacho Crescent Dogs

Considering nine out of ten recipes that I post are pretty healthy, I feel like it's okay to sprinkle in something totally gross and bad for you once in a while.  This was dinner one night and it was gobbled up instantly.  I could only imagine if you're a household with kids, fighting over who gets the last one.  These are nuts.

Crunchy Nacho Crescent Dogs
adapted from Bev Cooks

1 tube of crescent rolls
4 slices American or cheddar cheese (I used cheddar)
4 hot dogs
1 tbsp milk
2 cups crushed tortilla chips

Preheat oven to 375F.  Prepare a baking sheet with parchment or foil and spray with cooking spray.  Unroll crescents onto a floured surface and form 4 rectangles.  Pinch all the perforated edges together.  Lay the cheese in the center of the rectangle and lay the hot dog on top of the cheese.  Fold the short edges over the ends of the hot dog.  Then roll them up, pinching the dough together to cover the cheese.  Lightly brush each roll with milk, then roll in the crushed tortilla chips.  Place on the baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and dough is cooked through.
