To celebrate this National Holiday I decided to reach back into my childhood and my children's childhood and make up some Cheesie Wienies. I am sure that you have a version that you remember from your childhood as well and I would bet money that the recipe was developed by Pillsbury to help market their crescent rolls. This is my version. I hope you enjoy it.
Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Lay out the crescent triangles.
Lay a piece of bacon across each.
Cut a slit in your hot dogs.
Stuff em with cheese.
Lay em on the crescent roll that is topped with bacon.
Roll em up.
Bake em for 12 minutes.
Dinner is served.
Happy National Hot Dog Day.
adapted from Pillsbury
1 pkg. of your favorite hot dogs
1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls
8 slices bacon, cooked completely but still soft
8 slices of your favorite cheese (I used Colby Jack)
Preheat your oven to 375*. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Separate the crescent rolls and lay them on the baking sheet. Lay a slice of bacon along the center of each crescent triangle, lengthwise. Cut a slit in each hot dog and stuff the slit with a slice of cheese. Lay the hot dog on the bacon lined crescents and roll the dough up around them. Bake for 12 minutes. Print Recipe
