Have you ever made hot dog wraps?

Crescent Wrapped Hot Dogs - hot dogs
United States
December 12, 2006 6:14pm CST
I grew up as a child eating these for dinner and loving them. It's simple, take a hot dog, wrap a refrigerator crescent roll around it and bake according to crescent roll directions. I make a whole pack for dinner, using 2 cans of crescent rolls (I prefer to use 2 rolls for each dog) and 1 pack of hot dogs (8) for the 4 of us. Bake and dip in ketchup or whatever you want! They're easy,cheap and yummy! Some people put cheese in theirs, I prefer mine plain. Have you ever made these before?What quick and easy recipe can you share for a fast and inexpensive dinner?

I used to make these all the time! Unlike you I prefer mine with cheese. I still make them all the time because they are cheap and easy to make. They are also quite filling. I also make the Kraft macaroni dinner but I fry up some smoked sausage in a pan and slice it up and put it right in with the macaroni and cheese. It adds a different flavor to the mac and cheese. The flavors mix very well together.

That's a good idea with the macaroni and cheese! I've done that before too! Or added broccoli to the white cheddar version of mac n cheese!

I have eaten hot dogs wrapped but what I do is take those pilsbury biscuts and stretch them out and the roll them around the hot dog. I do not eat as many hot dogs as I use to in my "younger years" though;)+

I've seen them before, but never had one. They sound so good! I think I will try those next time I pick up stuff at the grocery store. I think I'll put cheese on mine.

Oh these are SO good. I Love these. Makes me want one when I read this. I do not have the ingredients for these though. Maybe I will have to buy all the stuff and do it again soon. I prefer mine with cheese usually, or use the Cheese hotdogs are even better.

Yes still make them today. We call them pigs in a blanket. Sometimes we use the cheese hot dogs. We also sometimes spread mustard on the cresent rolls for a different twist. They are inexpensive and yummy. We have another trick we do with cheap hot dogs (they have to be the cheapest you can get but not the red ones or turkey dogs). Take two packages of dogs and cut them into bite sized pieces and put them in the crock pot. Add a jar of chili sauce, a small jar of grape jelly and a teaspoon of mustard, and a teaspoon of worcestershire sauce ( I know it sounds gross but trust me they are yummy). Cook it on low for 3-4 hours or half that time on high. They are delicious.

I used to make pigs in a blanket for my children all the time until I started doing daycare. It became a real chore to make 25 of those things for lunch! I found a way to do something similar but far less time consuming. I dice the hot dogs and add them to cornmeal muffin mix. I add a handfull of cheddar cheese and pour the batter into muffin tins for baking. The kids love these corndog muffins and it is far less time consuming to prepare. The added bonus is that the hot dogs are diced so I don't need to worry about the little ones choking on a big bite of hot dog.

Mmm. This is a comfort food for me, since my mom used to make them. But, before she would roll the crescent around the hotdog, she would slice it lengthwise partway through and put a little bit of cheddar cheese in it. Also, she would just use one roll and half a hotdog. I'm no longer a child and I still love these things. My daughter is not as big a fan yet. :)

I use the cocktail smokies and cut each crescent in half--uses one pack of sausages, and three of rolls. Cut roll in half, and do as you do, baking. Serve these with ketchups or assorted mustards as a meaty appetizer. I have a friend who cuts crescents in thirds, uses two cans or rolls instead.

Yeah, my mom made 'em, she called them pigs in blankets. Though usually she made them with those short little Vienna sausages that come in the can (do they even make those anymore?). One of my favorite meals growing up!

yes vienna sausages are still around you can even get them in flavors like bbq now. My dad used to love them before he had to be on a restiricted diet for his heart he loved brunshwieger too and it is a no no on his diet also.

so easy... buy refrigerated crescent rolls, wrap them around hot dogs, 1 or 2 rolls per hot dog (I prefer 2 per dog because I love the bread) and bake according to the directions for baking just the crescent rolls on the package!

Try this and you wont ever regret roll a hot dog with 1/2 slice cheese into a tortilla. place however many of these as desired in a pan. top with cheese, hot sauce, then chili, then more cheese. bake in oven on 350 until warm (20-30 min)
