Simple Home-Made Franks in a Blanket

In my opinion, it’s not even a party without homemade franks in a blanket. This recipe is quick and easy to make and even more fun to eat! I can’t get enough of them.  Only two ingredients!!!

My husband loves to make these simple franks in a blanket to snack on while watching football!

Franks in a Blanket Recipe

8 – 12 Servings 


1 (8-oz.) tube crescent rolls (I like Pillsbury™ brand)
12-oz. package mini cocktail franks
(Note: I prefer to use full-size all-beef hot dogs cut in 3 pieces because cocktail franks are not always all beef)


Preheat oven to 375º.
Coat medium size baking sheet lightly with non-stick baking spray.
Unroll crescent sheets on a  lightly floured surface and tear where perforated.
Cut each triangle into 3 smaller triangles.

Place one cocktail frank on the thick side of each triangle, then gently roll to thinner side. Transfer franks to medium baking sheet and bake until golden, 12-15 minutes.

Serve with mustard (yellow, dijon or grainy mustard – it’s all good) and enjoy!

Additional Tips:

I usually make these for a quick snack for the family using just the two ingredients – but you can make these franks in blankets a bit more special. Here are some ideas:

  1. Brush dough with melted butter and sprinkle with Kosher (course) salt (or everything bagel seasoning) before baking.
  2. Brush dough with garlic butter before baking
  3. Substitute pre-made biscuit dough or puff pastry for crescent roll dough – delicious if you want to get a little fancy
