Pigs In A Blanket

This is a retro recipe, taking it back to the grade school cafeteria. Now I know that the school cafeteria is not known for good eats. It wasn't all bad though. They put out pretty good pizza, No Bake Cookies and Pigs In A Blanket.

Pigs In a Blanket may also be known as Cozy Dogs or Wiener Wraps. Basically, it is a hot dog encased in bread.

I use my recipe for Crescents to wrap the dogs. Simple roll the dough into a long oval. Tuck in the sides and pinch the seam together. Let rise, seam side down, on the baking sheet. It really couldn't be easier!

If you would like to include a slice of cheese with your dog, now is the time to do it. Just wrap your dog in cheese, before sealing in dough.

With school just around the corner, you can make a batch of these to freeze for school lunches.

1 Recipe (see Crescents)
10 Hot dogs
American cheese slices (optional)
Prepare dough. Portion dough into 4 ounce balls. Roll each dough ball on a well floured surface, large enough to cover the hot dog. Tuck the sides in. Bring up the sides and press together. Place seam side down on a baking sheet. Let rise while the oven is heated to 350. Bake until golden   brown. Makes 10 dogs.
