Expert Tips

  • What kid or "grown-up kid" doesn't love Crescent Dogs? Heat oven to 375ºF. Cut 4 slices American cheese into 6 strips each. Cut lengthwise slits in 8 hot dogs to within 1/2 inch of ends. Insert 3 strips of cheese into each slit. Separate a 8-oz. can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls into 8 triangles. Place a hot dog on each wide end of triangle; roll as directed on can. Place on ungreased cookie sheet with cheese side up. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
