I don’t even know if this is allowed to be considered a recipe… but, I don’t think there is any authority out there to decide recipe validity, so I’ll go out on a limb here.
Anyhow, I was watching Grey’s Anatomy the other day (I’ve finally caught up and finished the 7th season… it only took four months, thanks to Netflix) and someone was eating pigs in a blanket. You all know how crazy the mind is (especially mine), how you can think of one thing that makes you think of another thing that makes you think of something else. So… that happened, and I thought of crescent dogs (even though they’re pretty much the same thing). Needless to say, I had to have them.
Next day, I went to the store and bought all the ingredients. I used 98% fat free turkey hot dogs, reduced fat crescent rolls, and low fat (or fat free, I can’t remember) American cheese slices. Feel free to use full fat items. They’ll be delicious either way.
Makes 4 servings, 2 crescent dogs per person
1 can (8 total) crescent roll dough
4 slices American cheese
8 hot dogs
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Unroll crescent dough and separate into individual triangles on an ungreased baking sheet.
Cut each slice of cheese in half. Starting about ½-inch from the end and ending 1/2-inch from the opposite end, slice each hot dog. Only cut about halfway through. Do not cut completely in half.
Fold each half of a cheese slice in half lengthwise. Stuff inside the hot dog slice. It’s okay if it sticks out. Take the long end of one crescent triangle and place over cheese. Wrap around the hot dog and place back on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining hot dogs.
Bake for 11-13 minutes, until crescent dough is golden brown.
