Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll both cans of the dough; separate into 16 triangles. Cut each triangle lengthwise into 3 narrow triangles.
  • 2
    Place sausage on shortest side of each triangle. Roll up each, starting at shortest side of triangle and rolling to opposite point; place point side down on 2 ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown, switching position of cookie sheets halfway through baking. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • Refrigerated dough likes to stay chilled, so work in batches, making the first 2 dozen crescent dogs (from one can of dough) before taking the second can out of the fridge.
  • Line flat baking sheets with parchment for easier clean up (reuse the parchment from batch to batch).
  • Flat baking sheets are better for baking doughs—the hot oven air will circulate more evenly around the crescent-wrapped dogs, activating their rise and making them an even golden brown.
  • Give each dough-wrapped dog enough room to rise without bumping into each other.
  • Create a little condiment bar for serving: set out small bowls of ketchup, chili sauce, your favorite mustard, even a creamy horseradish sauce. They all will complement the smokiness of the mini sausages or hot dogs.

More About This Recipe

  • While these bite-sized snacks are best served as an appetizer, we’ve got an entrée you can to try too! Another name used for mini crescent dogs is “pigs in a blanket.” In the United States, “pigs in a blanket” often refers to hot dogs or sausages wrapped in biscuit or croissant dough and baked. (Fun fact: National Pigs in a Blanket Day is celebrated worldwide on April 24.) In the United Kingdom, pigs in a blanket are small sausages, or chipolatas, wrapped up in bacon. The first written record of pigs in a blanket is in Betty Crocker’s Cook Book for Boys and Girls in 1957. Looking to wrap up more appetizers in crescent dough?
