I found this in an old cookbook and thought it looked interesting, especially for kids who love hot dogs. It seems to be a twist on the old Pigs in a Blanket standby, but with much more flavor! Some kids may not like the onion, so feel free to omit it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 10 ounces ready-to-bake refrigerated buttermilk flaky biscuits
  • 13 cup ketchup or 13 cup chili sauce
  • 10 hot dogs
  • 14 cup milk
  • 1 cup crushed potato chips or 1 cup corn chips


  1. Heat oven to 400*.
  2. Combine onion and cheese; set aside.
  3. Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Press or roll out each to 4 inch rectangle.
  4. Spread 1 teaspoonful of ketchup or chili sauce over each rectangle.
  5. Cut lengthwise slit in each wiener; place cut side up on each rectangle.
  6. Fill each slit with about 1 tablespoon of onion mixture.
  7. Wrap dough around wiener; press edges to seal.
  8. Brush lightly with milk; roll in crushed chips.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes, watching closely for level of "brown-ness" desired.

This was pretty good.. I always like the crescent roll recipe but I did not have any crescents on hand but I did have biscuits.. Loved the idea of putting onions in because I love fresh onions on my hot dogs and I also did not use the potato chips I thought that was an odd idea and would just make a mess

Sorry, I just didn't enjoy this recipe. I really didn't understand the idea of the potato chips on the outside. I made half with the crushed chips and half without, and preferred the ones without. I didn't use the onions, but I don't really think it would have changed my opinion. Once you leave the onions and potato chips out, they are just like a pig in a blanket, but with biscuit dough instead of crescent rolls. My daughter wouldn't eat them, and I just didn't care for them. But, that is just my opinion. Obviously some others felt it was a good recipe.

These were really good. I made them to freeze for lunches. They froze well. I loved the onions in them. I left the ketchup out of some of them and then dipped them in ketchup. This made them easier to wrap. I may leave the potato chips off next time, just because I think they would be equally good without them. Thanks!
