Do you love camping? If you do, what’s your favorite meal? When I was a child, I really love crescent roll hot dog. My family usually goes camping at least once or twice a year. That’s why, when I got married, I have applied what I have experienced to my kids. Surprisingly, they love it too. But since they are still young, we only have our camping in the backyard. Somehow, that gives them thrill too. Below are the various crescent roll hot do recipes which I have researched. I have not tried some of them.
Crescent hotdog over the campfire
This is my favorite. My mom has thought me how to prepare it. You just need your crescent rolls; you can buy them from the market. If it is your first time to do this, you should read the labels of the crescent rolls as you may find the instructions of how you can do it. Of course, prepare your hotdogs. Cover the hotdogs with the crescent rolls. Make sure that they are attached tightly so that they won’t fall apart. After that, put each of them on the stick. Then cook it over the fire. This is not delicious; but it is also fun to do. You can choose to dip it in a ketchup or cheese. I love to dip it in a cheese.
If you don’t want to cook it over the fire, you can cook it in the oven. You need hot dogs, crescent rolls, and cheese. Heat the oven while you are preparing. The cheese should cut into 6 slices. Insert the cheese to each of the hotdogs. Then, cover them with the crescent roll and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. That’s so easy to do. This is a perfect snack for your kids. They will surely love it.
Snake crescent hotdog
Another great recipe is to make a snake crescent hotdog. This will surely become your kids’ favorite. It is just the same process with the other recipes above. However, you need to cut the crescent roll into long strips. Roll them in the hotdog until everything is covered. Put it in a bamboo skewers and bake for at least 20 minutes.
Tips when making crescent hotdog recipe
- Make sure that your hands are clean.
This may be obvious; but not all people are practicing this. This is important, especially if you are going to work with your kids. Cleaning your hands will give a peace of mind that your family will be safe when they eat what have baked.
- Do not over bake it
You just need to make sure that it is already golden brown before you serve. Over baking will prevent you and your family from enjoying the food. You can be creative. Try to use sauces or dips to enhance the flavor.
- Choose the right ingredients.
I am not paid by Pillsbury Company, but their crescent roll is different from the others. That’s why I recommend using it. When it comes to hotdogs, you can choose from the different types of meat. In fact, there are hotdogs which are made of vegetables which is great if you are a health conscious person.
