Pigs in a Blanket


Here I am again with another recipe from my kitchen!  This one is good for the kiddos and adults!  Because, seriously, who doesn't like little hot dogs wrapped in melted cheese and a lovely croissant?


I made these for L and I one day for a fun lunch.  In need of a change from our lunch meat/PBJ/Chicken Fingers rut, I started scouring the fridge.

Hmm...Turkey dogs....sliced cheese....a can of croissants...PIGS IN A BLANKET!

I quickly got to work creating the coolest pigs in a blanket I had ever created.



Here's what you will need:
4 hot dogs
4 slices of American cheese
A can of croissants
(This recipe makes 8.  Adjust for your needs.)

Here's what you need to do:
***Follow the directions on the croissant can for pre-heating and cooking times.***
Spray your cookie sheet with a good non-stick spray.
Cut the hot dogs and the cheese slices in half.
Un-roll the croissants so they make their cute little triangles and place them directly on the cookie sheet (or a cutting board, counter top, etc.)
Place a piece of cheese down on the little triangle, then the hot dog, and roll 'em up!
Continue this until they are all rolled and bake as directed. 



Let them cool down and serve!

    1. I didn't even think of that, but YES! We use turkey dogs and turkey bacon, so that works out great! Thanks for stopping by Lindsay!

    1. They were SO good! I just love them! My mom used to use just plain biscuits from a can instead of the croissants-those are good too!

  5. Great idea! I like to make them for breakfast using sausage. I don't think I've ever made them for my kids. They'd love them. Pinning.

  6. I've heard brie and pesto inside a crescent roll is to die for. I haven't yet tried it, though!

    But in my opinion, you can go wrong with crescent rolls and melted cheese!

    1. I am a carb FREAK! (It shows, too, but that is beside the point...) I may have to try the brie and pesto. That sounds delicious!

  8. We just made these last week- one of the kids' favorites! They love it with cheese, and I love the idea of adding bacon (someone mentioned bacon, right?!)

    1. Yes! Someone did mention bacon! I never thought of it, but I think that would be a great addition.
