    • 8 hot dogs
    • Ketchup and mustard, as desired
  • Directions:
    • Place a hot dog on the edge of the crescent roll dough and begin rolling the dog with the dough so the crescent roll dough covers the majority of the hot dog. Note that if the dough doesn’t overlap at the end of the hot dog, the dough can fall apart.
    • Skewer your crescent dog on a stick and roast it over the fire until golden brown.
    • Serve immediately with ketchup and mustard as desired.
