Pigs in a Blanket


  • 4 bun-length hot dogs (cut in half)
  • 1 package of refrigerated crescent dough
  • 4 slices of cheddar or American cheese (individually wrapped)

Materials Needed

  • Rolling pin
  • Baking sheet
  • Knife
  • Hot pad
  • Spatula to remove food from baking sheet


  1. Wrap each piece of hot dog with a half slice of cheese.
  2. Separate the crescent dough sections and roll out the sections with the rolling pin.
  3. Wrap the dough around the hot dog and cheese.
  4. Place them on a baking sheet and cook in the oven as directed on the crescent roll package. (An adult should remove the baking sheet from the oven and also place the hot dogs on to the plate.)
