1 (8 ounce) can

2 1/2 slices
American cheese slices, quartered
large hot dogs

Great idea. These were made the night before I needed them, cooled on a wire rack so not to get soggy and heated great the next day. I patted dry the hot dogs, this way the dough sticks easily. Also froze the left overs and will heat as needed. Freezes great, reheats great. Thank you for the neat idea.
These were fun to make, but choose the hot dogs carefully.(I bought an expensive brand) Ours were so oily that when we were done eating we all felt gross and almost sick. Yuck. If I ever do these agian, it will be with Turky dogs.
Cute! Used bun length hotdogs. For my taste, I should have used more dough (because of the size) but the kids prefer less bread so it was perfect for them. Cooked 80%, then popped back in with oven fries to reheat. Perfect. Omitted cheese but used some cheesedogs for variety. Found that if you stretch the dough and let it twist as you wrap, it turns out more bandage-like when it cooks. Leave a few ends sticking out to make it look raggedy - they brown up really cute this way. 20 dogs fed 6 10-12year olds and 2 adults with 3 for lunch the next day. (They would have been gone but they had to get out the door to trick-or-treat ASAP!) Reheats perfectly in oven, not micro.
Oh! And I actually called Pilsbury. They say not to leave dough out unbaked (in fridge) more than 2 hours or it may not rise. Whew. I'm done now!
These were fun to make but very time consuming. I did add a little extra work as I cut hotdogs in half to make it more of a hors d’oeuvre. Then cut a “V”ish shaped notched near the cut end, on the top/face side to represent feet. This made it a little harder to wrap but for my event, it was worth it. The only problem I had was I must have cut the cloth (crescent roll strips) too narrow as some of them crumbled a little after they were put into the serving dish. I only put 2 mustard dots for eyes and skipped the mouth. It made them a little more scary but still cute. For a special occasion, I would make these again.
I took the advice of one of the raters, and I dried the dogs off with paper towels so the dough would stick better, my daughter loved them!
Wrap some crispy bacon up in these with the cheese and hot dog and they are great!
These are even better if you use the cornbread stick dough.
We love these. I like to use "wurst" dogs--especially the cheddarwurst dogs. I like mine with sauteed onions and sauerkraut, my husband likes his covered in chili and the kids like to dip theirs in ketchup to make them all "bloody". GREAT for those last minute quick dinners after a long day.
