Ingredient Notes

  • Crescent Rolls Dough: Crescent rolls are one of the biggest crowd-pleasers. Perfectly light, fluffy, and buttery, the dough works wonderfully for this recipe.
  • Cheese: Whether on a burger or melted into these delicious rolls, American cheese slices are a timeless dairy staple that can add vibrancy and flavor to any dish. They’re popular not just in America but around the world, too. These airy slices of comforting goodness bring a long-loved creamy taste that livens up every snack.
  • Hot Dogs: I used chicken hot dogs because they are a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional beef or pork hot dogs. They’re lower in fat than other types of hot dogs and also contain higher levels of protein.

Are crescent roll hot dogs the same as pigs in a blanket?

Some call them crescent roll hot dogs, and others pigs in a blanket or mummy dogs. The concept is pretty much the same, just the type of dough may be different.

Can these crescent roll hot dogs be made ahead of time?

It’s best to serve the crescent rolls when they’re fresh out of the oven. But you can also prepare them one or two days in advance, keep them in the fridge, and bake them just before you’re ready to serve them.
