Mini Cheesy Dogs
Welcome Back to Football Friday and the Game Day Recipe. Today’s recipe is for Mini Cheesy Dogs. The dogs are made with crescent rolls, cocktail wieners and cheese. Fast, easy and affordable. The perfect combination when serving a group of hungry football fans. Another plus, these mini cheesy dogs are delicious served with ketchup, mustard or barbecue sauce.
Kids Love Them Too
If your hosting a kids birthday party or it’s summer time and you don’t know what to make your off from school kiddies, why not whip them up a batch of the mini cheesy dogs! My grandkids are ages 7, 5, and 3 and they love these mini, kid finger friendly mini dogs. If you don’t have cocktail wieners, substitute regular size hot dogs and just cut them into thirds.
Have a “Mini” Party
Another good choice to serve is Mini Quiche Florentine You can easily have a “mini party” where only mini size appetizers, sliders, side dishes and desserts are served. Take a look through my Recipe Box to find many delicious “mini” recipe ideas.
