Making mini hot dogs and fried mozzarella served with mixed fruit. Using store bought crescent roll sheets or puff pastry sheets and you can make your own pigs in a blanket, and they taste so much better than the frozen kind! You can also assemble and freeze your pigs in a blanket to save and bake when you are ready. If you can’t find the crescent rolls in sheets just buy the regular roll dough and press the perforations together.
- 8 Hot Dogs
- 1 Canister Crescent Roll Dough (In Sheets)
Preheat oven to 400.
Cut each hot dog into four pieces.
Using a sharp knife, cut pastry into squares to wrap around each piece. (Don’t make the pastry too thick, it will puff up when baked.)
Set all hot dogs on a baking sheet an inch apart.
(If freezing, place in freezer on the baking sheet. When frozen transfer to a freezer zip lock bag.)
Bake in middle of the oven for 10-12 minutes (15-20 if frozen).
Recipe Mozzarella Bites
- 8 Ounces Fresh Mozzarella Bocconcini or a Ball of Fresh Mozzarella cut into 1/2-1 Inch Chunks
- 2 TBSP Flour
- Egg White from 1 Egg Mixed with 2 TBSP Water
- 1/2 Cup Dried Bread Crumbs
- 3/4 Cup Canola Oil (for frying)
Set up three dipping bowls: one with flour, one with egg white wash, one with bread crumbs.
Dip each piece of mozzarella first in flour, followed by egg and finally bread crumbs.
Set on a baking sheet. When all cheese pieces are coated, place baking sheet in freezer for 20 minutes.
(You can place them in a freezer bag and save for later).
Heat canola oil over medium high heat until sizzling.
Carefully add mozzarella pieces, flipping over with a slotted spoon when browned.
Only do a couple at a time, moving quickly. Its easy to let them get too hot, then they start to melt and fall apart.
Serve immediately with Marinara Sauce for dipping.
