I think that my 5 year old (almost 6 – wow) son could live off of hot dogs. And I think he’d be perfectly ok with it too. When his daddy was still with us, he’d tell him all the time ‘You’re gonna turn into a hot dog, boy!’. I seriously think he’d choose a hot dog over cake or candy any day.

So, undoubtedly, any meal that I can make & tell him that hot dogs are in it is a winner as far as he’s concerned. Hot dogs – in his mind – are like pieces of magical fairy dust that can be layed atop of cardboard itself & still taste good.

Or something like that…

Anyhoo.

We’re hear to talk about this new recipe I’m posting… yup, I posted a new recipe! I feel like there should be an orchestra playing or something…. or 3 cheers even. I know, I’m a bit dramatic. Good thing y’all love me – and if you don’t, well, this recipe will make you love me.

Unroll one can of crescent roll dough. Slice each crescent triangle into 3 strips, as so in the below picture. Wrap each strip around each cocktail weenie – making enough to fill the outer rim of the dish you’re using to bake in.

Place the pigs in the blanket in a round dish such as a skillet or baking dish (I used a cast iron skillet).  Lightly brush with olive oil.
