Crescent Hot Dogs

I was talking with a friend about stretching the food budget and she mentioned to me this wonderful idea about serving hot dogs. I had made crescent hot dogs before, but she told me that her children thought it was the greatest thing in the world.

Try out this favorite standby.

  • 8 hot dogs
  • 4 slices American cheese, each cut into 6 strips
  • 1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Slit hot dogs to within 1/2 inch of ends; insert 3 strips of cheese into each slit.
  2. Separate dough into triangles. Wrap dough triangle around each hot dog. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, cheese side up.
  3. Bake 12-15 min or until golden brown.               
  • Create a dipping sauce to go along with the crescent hot dogs. Several that come to mind are honey mustard, a chipotle ketchup or a wasabi mayo.
