Lately, it seems as if we've just been too busy to sit and enjoy a full meal, so meals been pretty hit or miss. Today has been overcast and suddenly cool, so we wanted something warm and fulling and we wanted it now!
A short while back I saw that our local grocery store had refrigerated crescent roll dough on sale; it's a product I rarely ever buy, but I couldn't resist the price. The minute I saw them I was reminded of these little rolls that my mother used to make when my brothers and I were growing up and so, for a quick dinner tonight, they were just handy and delicious. Warmed up a can of tomato soup in that famous red can, and in under 30 minutes we were eating a nice, satisfying little meal. We agree this is one that we look forward to enjoying again.
Pigs In a Blanket
Not a recipe really, more of a how to.
One roll of refrigerated crescent dough (such as Pillsbury Poppin' Fresh) (makes 6 crescents)
4-6 six slices cheese, your choice
6 hot dogs or slices of ham
Mustard, if desired
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
Open up on the can of crescent dough and separate the crescents into individual crescents. You may want to slightly flatten them, though it's not really necessary.
Lay pieces of cheese on top edge (widest part) of the dough, leaving a small margin of dough all around as the cheese will melt out of the edges. Lay your hot dog or sliced, crosswise, ham over that. Add your mustard if you are using it.
Holding the dough at the two outer edges, roll the dough towards you, catching up the cheese as you roll. The short pointed end of the crescent should be the last part that is rolled up.
Place filled crescent, pointed side down, on the cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
