Cheesy Crescent Dogs

We usually eat leftovers or some type of sandwich for lunch. My kids are old enough to fix their own lunches, but still usually ask what their choices are. I told them to have sandwiches today, because I want enough leftovers for a Leftover Buffet on Thursday night.

They happened upon a package of hot dogs in their sandwich meat drawer that we had overlooked for the last couple of weeks. We're not real big hot dog eaters, but I do occasionally buy a package or two if they are on sale. Ball Park Franks were on sale for $0.99 a few weeks back, and I had picked up a package. A quick check of the expiration date showed they were going out-of-date today!

We went ahead with our sandwiches for lunch, and I made an adjust to our supper plans. We will probably have the pizza tomorrow night, since I haven't bought the fish planned for Wednesday night yet. Having my ground meats and boiled chicken pre-cooked and in the freezer really helps me be able to change our meal plans on the spur of the moment.

I made Cheesy Crescent Dogs for supper. Since we each had two of these, I didn't make any sides. The kids really like these! They are kind of fun!!

Cheesy Crescent Dogs

8 hot dogs
Block cheddar cheese cut into hot dog-length slices
crescent rolls (I used reduced fat)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Split each hot dog down the middle lengthwise, cutting almost all the way through.
Place a long thick cheese slice down the middle.
Separate the crescent dough into triangles.
Lay each hot dog lengthwise down a crescent roll. Wrap dough stretching it a bit to completely cover the hot dog.
Place crescent-covered dogs on a foil lined cookie sheet. (This will make for quick cleanup of any cheese the oozes out!)
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with ketchup and mustard, if you like.
