Crescent Dogs

Crescent DogsCrescent Dogs are a fun lunch or a quick & easy dinner. This recipe is a tasty way to “jazz” up hot dogs.

Plus, kids love eating them! Since they are so simple to make, kids will enjoy helping you make them. Megan and I enjoyed doing them up and getting in mommy-daughter time!

Try serving them with my Homemade Crispy Fries for a complete kid-friendly meal.

I tried making the Crescent Dog with prepackaged “Cheese Dogs” (Oscar Mayer and Ballpark both make these). They were alright but they tasted better following the original recipe. I don’t think kids will care though.
