Yummy and fast. The only real tip I can offer is about cutting the dough. I found using a pizza cutter was much much easier than using a knife.

My girlfriend served these recently and they were a big hit. She made them the week before, cooled then froze them in a plastic baggie then just popped in the oven to warm up. I love things I can make ahead

Family staple. Great for church cover dish and easy. I usually boil the hot dogs first unless I use chicken franks. It cuts down on the salty taste. Also, I put the crescents in the freezer for no more than 10 minutes to get them easier to work with. Drain the franks very well before rolling them.

These flew off the platter like they had money wrapped up in them! I used 1 bag of Regular Lil Smokies and 1 bag of Cheddar ones, which took 3 cans of crescent rolls. Served with Honey Mustard Sauce from this site, bbq sauce, and ketchup. Will definitely make these again... very easy for something people seem to love so much!

I brought these to a bar potluck so tried them boiled in beer to remove grease. Everyone raved how much they liked them. Baked them only 12 minutes so they weren't too dark.

I made these as an appetizer one night and I cooked them as long as the recipe said and they were kind of burned on the bottoms. Next time will not leave them in as long. Overall, very good still.

Have to give this 5 stars for ease of prep and number of compliments received. I used Lil Smokies and served with a spicy mustard. Honestly I was surprised by the popularity-it just seemed too simple and easy!. Will defintely add to my appetizer arsenal!
