WFMW-Hot Dog Roll-Ups

When I need a kid-pleasing kind of meal, and leftovers that warm up well in the microwave for lunches, I turn to my old stand-by, Hot Dog Roll-Ups.

8 hot dogs of your choice (We love Oscar Mayer.)
1 can crescent rolls
2 slices American Cheese

Step One: I start with slightly frozen hot dogs and cut a slit in each dog. Do not go all the way through the hot dog.

Step Two: Next, I take each slice of cheese and cut it into four strips. I then fold each strip.

Step 3: Insert the cheese into each hot dog's opening.

Step 4: Open the can of crescent rolls and separate into triangles. Starting at the wide end of the triangle, roll each hot dog up in the crescent.

Last Step: Layer on baking stone and bake at 450° for 20 minutes.

Some people call these pigs in a blanket. You can also substitue regular biscuits instead of the crescent rolls. You have to stretch each biscuit out and form around the hot dog. I usually do 16 hot dogs and double the recipe, because we like them warmed up so well, and it works for us!

I don't really care for hotdogs. However, when I make them this way(and I do make them just like you!) I can eat several. We love these piggies in a blanket!

These look so good! I like hot dogs, and I LOVE crescent rolls. Thanks for the great idea, I know a certain 5-year-old who would love them!
