Print Coupons for this Cost Cutting Crescent Dogs Recipe!

A new printable coupon just came out for Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies, and it occurred to me that this ingredient would pair very nicely with another ingredient I have a coupon for. Can you guess which one?

Pillsbury Crescents! 

I decided to make Crescent Dogs today. This winning appetizer is not only inexpensive. It’s super quick and easy to create, and soooo delicious! When I say it’s easy, believe me. It’s so easy a 5 year old can do it. My 5 year old enjoyed helping me make these almost as much as she enjoyed eating them! 🙂

I went with the Cheddar version of the Lit’l Smokies, but there is a coupon available right now for $1 off Merkt’s Beer Cheese Spread that I believe would be incredible in these Crescent Dogs or Pigs in a Blanket (whatever you’d like to call these). I went to Walmart for my ingredients today, and no Merkt’s Beer Cheese Spread. But I did find out they carry it at some Targets. So you may want to consider that or some other kind of cheese if you can’t find the cheddar Lit’l Smokies. But it’s not necessary.

What you will need:

  • I grabbed two 8 oz. cans of Pillsbury Crescents and used a $1/2 printable coupon
  • I grabbed one 13 oz. package of Hillshire Farm Cheddar Lit’l Smokies (or whatever other version of Lit’l Smokies you’d prefer) and used a $.55/1 printable coupon
  • I also grabbed some green onions (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Open and unfold your dough. You will start out with 8 triangle pieces to work with per can.

2. Take a pizza cutter and cut each triangle into 3 or 4 pieces (depending on how much dough you want to use for each dog). When you cut, you want the pieces to be wider on one end and come to a point and get smaller on the other. Then you can stretch and flatten the dough pieces out a bit before you roll your Lit’l Smokies. I would also smear on the beer cheese spread at this point if you were fortunate enough to get your hands on some.

Note: There will more than likely be crescent dough left over so you don’t need to cut your dough sparingly.

3. Roll the Lit’l Smokies (dogs or piggies) up starting at the wider end.

Add a little green onion as you’re rolling if you’d like.

4. Put your rolled up dogs on a cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve as is or with a dipping sauce of your choice.
