Hot Dogs – Choose your dogs, even larger Polish sausages or bratwurst work as long as the crescent roll fits around them. Make breakfast crescent roll dogs using cooked sausage links! Minis can be made by cutting the crescent roll dough in half for wrapping around cocktail smokies!

Crescent Rolls – Crescent roll dough bakes up into a light breading around the hot dogs, a store brand is okay if Pillsbury isn’t available. Strips of puff pastry and ready-made pizza dough also work!

Cheese – American cheese is made for melting! Other cheeses to try are cheddar, Swiss, mozzarella, or a Mexican blend.

Variations – Tuck some bacon bits, chopped jalapenos, or green chilis into the cheese before wrapping the hot dogs. Before baking, brush the tops of the assembled dogs with egg wash and sprinkle the tops with everything bagel seasoning.
