Hot Dog Nuggets

Hot Dog Nuggets - it's the family's new favorite recipe! It's simple, delicious and is perfect for lunch, dinner or even a party!

I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys today! It’s a recipe that is SO simple to make and one the kids absolutely loved. In fact, we’ve already made it twice this month. 😉 It’s for Hot Dog Nuggets! I had spotted a similar recipe in one of my many Paula Deen magazines and knew I had to give it a try. Hers seemed a little more complicated, so I wanted to make it more simple. Fortunately, we loved how it turned out and are excited to have a new recipe everyone in the family loves. 😉

You see, we’re not super fancy around these parts and tend to have hot dogs or corn dogs each month. Because we have them each month, I feel like it gets a little boring so I wanted to be able to try a “new version” of this classic meal and was pleased at how simple and delicious they were. In fact,  they are so simple even the kids can help make them. All you really have to do is slice up the hot dogs, wrap them in small pieces of crescent dough and you’re done. Easy, right?

  1. I bought some similar to these but wrapped in puff pastry, and they were expensive. These look just as tasty! Try dipping them in honey mustard dressing. Yum.

  2. I bet you could even make a bunch and freeze them after baking! Then, when hungry, just pop a few in the microwave? Would be so convenient on those crazy days…..

  3. This must be the first time ever, that a pin I found and made actually looks like the photo! Thank you for this neat recipe and the very good instructions 🙂

  4. I made these tonight. They came out great and the kids loved them. They’re bite size, which was great for my kiddos hands. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Where’s the cornbread? these are pigs in a blanket.maybe if you dip them in corn muffin mix would work.you still have a great idea here. Thank you.

  6. Couldn you cut the strips big enough to wrap the entire hot dog and then cut the wrapped hot dog into bite sized pieces either before or even after cooking?

      1. she loved them, thought they were so cute 🙂 I’m gonna try other recipes from here as well. You really have some good one’s and great ideas for other things as well, I’ve bookmarked your site for future reference. Its so hard to come up with ideas on my own.

  7. I’m not sure why these are corn dogs, since there is no cornbread involved, but they seem like a quick handy snack for after school!

  8. Hi! So i’M going to attempt these but live in the UK.
    While searching for the uk equivAlant of ‘Crescent Dough’ its shown me croissant pastry, do these neeD a sweet puff pastry or a normal puff pastry?
    Thanks!!
