If you are looking for the pancake-wrapped sausage links for your pigs in a blanket I am sorry. This is the lunch version, not the breakfast version. If you don’t know what I am referencing there, you need to take a trip to the midwest!

This recipe takes bread in its greatest form, the crescent roll, and wraps it around the hot dog prior to cooking. When it is done, you have your bun and dog melded together ready for dipping into your favorite hot dog condiments!

The soft, warm crescent roll is a million times better than the room temp buns you normally put your hot dog on!

Plus, these are easy enough for the kids to make all by themselves!
