Twin Cities Dogs
We love our hometown so much we created the Twin Cities Dog: Two hot dogs with
double cheese (two kinds, of course), wrapped in Crescents and served on (yep, you
guessed it) two sticks.
- 8 large hot dogs
- 1 stick (1 ounce) mozzarella string cheese, cut lengthwise into 8 strips
- 1 stick (1 ounce) Cheddar string cheese, cut lengthwise into 8 strips
- 1 can (8 ounces) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 ounces) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
- 1 egg, beaten
- 8 wooden corn dog or wooden craft sticks
- Ketchup and mustard, if desired
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Slit hot dogs to within 1/2 inch of ends; insert
1 strip of mozzarella and 1 strip of Cheddar cheese into each slit.
- Separate or cut dough into 4 rectangles (if using crescent rolls, press perforations
- Place 2 hot dogs crosswise down center of each rectangle.
- Cut 1-inch-wide
strips in dough on each side of hot dogs to within 1/4 inch of hot dogs.
- Fold strips
at an angle across hot dogs, alternating from side to side.
- Place on ungreased cookie
sheet, cheese side up.
- Brush top of crescent with beaten egg.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Insert 1 stick into each hot dog.
- Garnish with ketchup and mustard.
