Chili Cheese Dogs in a Blanket

    Do you have football food leftovers? It seems as though there is always just a little of this-and-that remaining from game day. With an extra roll of crescent dough, a bit of chili and some of those little smokies, I came up with an idea of how to make 4 simple ingredients into a whole new dish. 
   This idea takes a little chili cheese dog and puts that piggy into a blanket. What fun. It's a hand-held, two-bite snack that would make a nice side for a bowl of soup on a chilly night.

Chili Cheese Dogs in a Blanket
1/2 cup coney sauce, thin without beans
16 little smokies
1/3 cup shredded cheese
Dogs ready to roll.
1 pkg. crescent dough sheet

Preheat oven to 350. Spray cookie sheet.

Roll crescent dough onto cookie sheet. Cut to form 8 rectangles.
Place 1 smoky on each square, top with 1 tsp. coney sauce and a sprinkle of shredded cheese. 

(Note: resist the urge to overfill or the filling will leak out.)

Carefully roll dough around smokies pinching edges together. 

Bake for 15-17 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. 

Makes 16.

Ready for oven.
