Mini Crescent Dogs

It’s been a while since we last did a super easy food idea where you only needed 5 or less ingredients. I figured today feels like a good day to go back to the basics, and what could possibly be an easier recipe than mini crescent dogs?

mini crescent dogs

It’s so easy that we shouldn’t even call it a recipe. All you need is crescent rolls, min hot dogs and cheese. And in 3 steps, a fun, bite-sized, crowd-pleasing snack is served!

And yes, okay, there’s some cheese spillage here… but that’s part of the fun! So consider yourselves warned, cheese explosion is to be expected!

You Will Need:

  • 1 can Immaculate Baking Co.™ refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 24 mini hot dogs
  • 24 thin slices of your choice of cheese if desired (we used pepper jack)

Here’s How to Get the Dough Rolling:

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Unroll the dough; separate into 8 triangles. Cut each triangle lengthwise into 3 narrow triangles.
  2. Wrap each mini hot dog in a slice of cheese and place on shortest side of each triangle. Roll up each, starting at shortest side of triangle and rolling to opposite point; place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown, switching position of cookie sheets halfway through baking. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm.

Buenos Cheesy Días Egg Bake

Somehow, two weeks have already past since I came back from vacation. I’m not quite sure where the time went, and I honestly have to say that I’m surprised that the biggest challenge to overcome coming back from a long break overseas is NOT jetlag. It’s your focus, and your rhythm, and willingness to let this truth set in: It’s time to get bakin’!

Okay. I must admit that I’m having the most trouble with the very last one. I’m still putting my baking on hiatus, just cuz. But I did go back, way, way back, about a year back, to look at other recipes that I did but never got around to sharing them via this blog, and I think they deserve to get dusted off and re-see the light of the day. Starting with this Buenos Cheesy Días Egg Bake!

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Here’s How to Get the Dough Rolling:

Avocado Bacon Rolls

I’m on a bacon roll. Looking into all sorts of recipes that would include bacon. Because, well, why not? I continued to be amazed at how bacon has found its way into all sorts of recipes, from sweet to savory and everything in between! So why not roll up a little California Club sandwich in a crescent roll? Bacon is a sure win, and how can you go wrong with some lime-drizzled avocado over melted pepper jack cheese?
