Football Pups – EASY Hot Dog Football Party Snacks

There’s this little football game on TV later today.  Maybe you’ve heard of it?  Begins with an S – Super something…

Oh, yeah – the Superbowl!

We are going to a friend’s house later and I was playing around with snacks for our contribution.   I’m going to bring my Orzo with Feta and Pine Nuts but wanted something the kids – not just mine – will be sure to like too.  So the kids and I came up with these super cute, super easy, Superbowl snacks.

  • Hot Dogs – I suggest a high quality, all beef hot dog for best flavor.
  • Uncooked Crescent Rolls

  • Preheat oven to 375 deg F (or temperature on the crescent roll directions if different).
  • Cut each hot dog into quarters ~ about 1″ to 1.5″ segments.
  • Cut each crescent triangle in half and use each to wrap around a hot dog piece.
  • After all sight of hot dog is covered, pinch the ends to get more football shaped oval.
  • Score top with a knife -long line across length of dog, then 3 short perpendicular lines.  If you cut all the way through the dough, the hot dog will show through when it’s baked.  If not, just the lines are in the dough – pick your favorite.
  • Bake for 11 to 12 minutes (time shown on crescent package) or until light brown.
  • Remove and serve.
