Bacon. Cheese. Hot Dogs. Crescent Rolls. You pretty much can’t go wrong with these Mini Bacon Crescent Dogs!
Did you love pigs in a blanket as a child? Well if so, you should totally give this fun “mini” version a try! Made with crescent roll dough, these little dogs are quite the tasty treat to serve at a party.
But there’s an extra fun surprise hidden in these
mini dogs. Can you spy it in the picture?? Ok ok, maybe the title gave it away. It’s….BACON!
Here’s the how to:
Start with a can of Pillsbury crescent roll dough. Cut each triangle in half to make about 16 long skinny triangles.
Then prep your hot dogs, cutting each into thirds.
And cook up some yummy bacon. Although be sure to cook it “soft”, and not crispy. Otherwise, it won’t wrap around the dogs.
Slice each hot dog down the center to form a little pocket for some cheese. Then stuff a small slice of cheese into the middle of the slit.
Wrap a piece of bacon around the hot dog and cheese.
Then wrap the long skinny crescent roll dough around.
Repeat with the remaining ingredients, and pop them all on a greased baking sheet. Then bake for about 30 minutes, or until the crescent rolls are golden and the cheese is all nice and melty.
Remove mini dogs from the oven and serve immediately while that cheese is still warm!
