4gourmet hot dogs
2logs (3 1/2 in. long x 1 1/2 in. thick logs) extra sharp cheddar cheese, cut in half
18 ounce can Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
In medium saucepan, boil hot dogs in boiling water for 2-4 minutes.
Remove hot dogs from water and set aside.
When hot dogs are cool enough to handle, wipe off with paper towels.
Slit hot dogs to within 1/2 inch of ends to form a pocket. Insert 1 cheese log into each slit.
*Use two crescent rolls per hot dog. Do not separate dough into triangles. Instead, form dough into 4 rectangles, pressing together at perforations to form into 4 rectangles. Wrap dough around each cheese filled hot dog. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, cheese side up.
Bake 12-15 mins or until rolls are golden brown and cheese has melted.
Serve with your choice of mustard, ketchup or barbecue sauce.
