  • 1 package mini hot dogs
  • 1 package crescent dough
  • 7 slices Swiss cheese


  • Lay the dough flat out on a cutting board and cut it into strips that are slightly smaller than the length of a mini hot dog. Cut the cheese into thirds.
  • Set a piece of cheese on the dough, followed by a little wienie, roll the dough over and cut it off where the two ends of the dough touch. Repeat the process until all the dough or hot dogs are used up.
  • Set each pig in a blanket on a baking sheet lined with a silicon pad. Bake in a 375ºF oven for 12 to 14 minutes. The dogs are ready when the dough has turned a nice golden brown.
  • Serve with a good German mustard.
