Please, no laughing

Oh yes, I am. I am really posting a recipe that consists of 2 ingredients. One of which is...um...hotdogs. It is official. I have no shame. I can't help it. My lunch ladies used to serve me something like this as a child. I blame them.

Now, this isn't your typical dinner party fare. No, as you can see by the Tigger plate (courtesy of my friend Emily who left it at my house with brownies adorning it) this is more appealing to the little people. Really. My 3 year old ate 3 of these babies for lunch today.

Okay. Here is the recipe. Stop laughing at me.

8 hot dogs (I never buy the cheap hot dogs. I just don't trust what is in them)
1 tube of Crescent Rolls, refrigerated section (I use reduced-fat. No one can tell the difference around here)

Preheat oven to 375*. Split roll sections apart. Roll each section around a hot dog- larger end to smaller end. Place on baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until crescent rolls are golden brown.

My kids like to eat these with ketchup. So do I.


  1. Now, this speaks to me. ;p

    We also do these with pepperoni and cheese instead of the hot dogs. Mmmm...

  2. Yum. That sounds really good. Then do you dip them in pizza sauce? That would be so yummy.

  3. Isaac saw this and wants to try them.

  4. My kids love those too!

    Note to self.... get plate next time I am at your house! :o)

  5. I make this all of the time for lunch. Sometimes I make a slit in the hotdog (not all the way through) and stuff cheese in it.

    Wanted you to know I have a giveaway on my site going until Friday night. theprovidentwoman.com click on the giveaway in the far right side bar.

  6. I make them the way Provident Woman described. My sister just made these for lunch yesterday. We call them Pigs in a Blanket.
