Pigs in a Blanket

Our last night in Pinehurst, we decided to watch the UNC-Duke game, which mean tailgate food. (Even though we were inside the house the whole time).

I was kinda lazy, so I used the crescent rolls in a tube. So cheap, they're vegan.

Wrapped up some smart dogs in the crescent rolls, then stuck them in the oven at 350 for about 16 minutes. 

I actually prefer the rolls a little bit on the undercooked side, because it leaves the part touching the dog all gooey and delicious (There's a reason I like them this way: my grandmother used to make these for us with cheese wrapped around the dog. The mouthfeel of the melted cheese is just like the mouthfeel of the slightly undercooked crescent roll dough...) Most people probably want to do these 20 minutes.


  1. Does vegan cheese not work well in this or was that just not available in Pinehurst?

  2. I haven't found any vegan cheeses in Pinehurst. They only had one 'nondairy' cheese, and it had casein in it.

  3. My mom always made these when I was a kid. I miss them! Except I didn't like the dough mushy, I like when the dough is golden and flaky! And then dip it in ketchup and mustard!
