I'm a work-at-home mom, trying to keep things simple in a world filled with chaos and clutter.

Cooking In The Summer Heat

To me, summer and barbecues go hand-in-hand. And I’m lucky to live in an area where the temperature rises quickly in the spring and the warmth lasts well into the fall. This gives me more time to enjoy my grill. However, I have young children who aren't always up for a burger or steak, and my favorite go-to meal has to be pigs in a blanket. But the thought of turning on my oven in the sweltering 100 degree heat, doesn't exactly bring a smile to my face.

I had searched the internet and some of my favorite cooking web sites for tips on how to make this kid-favorite on the grill, and sadly, I came up empty handed. So, I took it upon myself to try it out. I hope you have as much fun and success with this simple recipe as my daughter and I did.


Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 8 Pigs In A Blanket
All Wrapped Up!
All Wrapped Up!

Ingredients

  • 1 Package 8-Count Hotdogs
  • 1 Package Pillsbury refrigerated crescents
  • Cooking Spray of your choice
  • 9"x13" Cookie Sheet, light color works best

Instructions

  1. Light your grill. Mine is a propane grill with an after-market thermometer that we added last summer. Set your grill to the lowest setting, close the lid, and let it heat up while you prepare the food. My grill holds pretty steady around 380° during cooking
  2. Spray your cookie sheet with a thin layer of cooking spray
  3. Open the package of crescents and separate into the 8 pre-cut triangles
  4. Wrap one hotdog in one of the crescents, rolling from the largest end to the smallest
  5. Place the hotdogs on the cookie sheet
  6. Place your cookie sheet on the top rack of the grill, placing them on the lower rack provides too much heat and will burn the bottom of your crescents
  7. Close the lid and let cook (opening the lid too frequently will let the heat out and add more time to the cooking process)
  8. Let cook for 18-25 minutes, depending on your grill temperature. You want the crescents to be a golden brown, but don’t let them get too dark, waiting too long will burn the bottom. Check every 2-3 minutes after the 18 minute mark, but do it quickly!
  9. Remove from heat and let cool.

Voila! You have a wonderful kid-favorite, and you didn't have to add extra heat to your house!

Here’s something interesting. You know how hotdogs come in packages of 8, but hotdog buns come in packages of 10? Well, there’s no waste here! The Pillsbury crescents are a package of 8 also. It’s like they were made for each other!
