Piggy in a blanket

To use up the last 3 hot dogs leftover from this summer and my amazing auntie anne’s pretzel dog experiments, I made pigs in a (homemade) blanket. I used the Pigs in a Blanket (from scratch) recipe, and cut it in half. Followed the recipe exactly, and they turned out very yummy. Kind of a biscuit texture. Next time, I’d roll the dough thinner, so it’s as thin as crescents you get from the package. I’d also try to mix the dough less, to see if that makes any difference in the texture. After looking online, most crescent roll recipes have yeast. I wonder how much of a difference it makes? None of those recipes have cheese in them though. =)

I served with frozen waffle fries (I’ve been having such a craving!) and salad and homemade ranch.
