In Dinner/Meals, Food, Kids, Recipes on February 28, 2010 at 9:22 pm

Obviously, I love to cook and bake treats. I have always enjoyed cooking and have, many times since the beginning of my relationship with my husband created elaborate and delicious meals for him to eat. While he certainly enjoyed them, I often wonder if he would enjoy a microwaved frozen chimichanga just as much. He’s definitely into the ‘quick fix’ type foods and most things that you might normally feed your elementary-age child. So, just for fun, I decided to do a little Halloween spin on the classic kids’ finger food, pigs in a blanket.

They were super easy – you will need the following:

Hot dogs

Pillsbury crescent roll dough

Kraft American Singles

Mustard (and ketchup if you so desire)

Pre-heat your oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with foil. Cut the Kraft Singles (or a cheese of your choice) into 1/4 pieces. I actually used sharp cheddar for mine (I have a weird thing about American cheese), and they were still good. The only thing was that the cheddar was thicker and more stiff than the American singles, and was therefore more difficult to wrap and would break apart.

Flour a clean surface and roll out your package of crescent rolls. Smoosh the perforated edges together and give the dough a quick roll out with your rolling pin, just to make it a little bigger. Use a pizza cutter to make 1/4 inch strips, by 4 (ish) inch strips.

Stick your cheese on your hot dog, and then wrap him with the strips. Bake for approx 15min at 375, or until your mummy’s wrap is golden brown.

Garnish with a little mustard to make his face.

*You can add a little more grown up taste to it by adding a nice hearty bowl of chili to dip him in*

It’s a fun treat for the kids and of course, the kid in you…or your husband.
