Mini Crescent Dogs

Mini Crescent Dogs. Mini Crescent Dogs. Mini sausages are all wrapped up in flaky crescents in an all-time favorite appetizer.

Here is another finger food favorite. When we were younger my Mom made these as a treat for us. She used the regular sized hotdogs. We did not have little cocktail weinies available.

I loved them … picking them up, dipping them into gulden’s spicy, brown mustard … sometimes hellman’s mayonaise.Yummy! Now with the availability of the little smoked beef cocktail weinies… I can make these and freeze them. These are now a new year’s staple for me… whether I’m bringing the new year in with a party or alone… I make these!
