Dogs in a cheese blanket

A cheesy twist to a classic dish, it is easy and fun as the kids can help make these.


8 sausage (Frankfurters or hot dog type)
8 sli cheese (American cheese)
1 pk dough (refrigerated crescent rolls)


Heat the oven to bake at 350° F and line a shallow pan with non-stick paper, or lightly spray with oil a cookie sheet, if you don´t have a non-stick one.

Wrap a slice of cheese around a hot dog. Wrap crescent dough around the hot dog and cheese. Place on the prepared pan or cookie sheet. Repeat with the rest.

Bake until golden brown, for 8-10 minutes or as recommended in the package.

Allow them to cool a little and serve just slightly warm.

Refer to crescent roll package to get a rough idea on cooking time.

Don´t serve hot dogs in a blanket straight from the oven or children will get burnt. Allow them to cool enough to be handled and eaten without accidents.

Serve with mustard and ketchup if you wish.
