Hot dog rolls have become very popular around the world. Many countries like Britain, Irish, and the USA have admitted that these best appetizers are their staple food. If you will try to make them once, you will see how easy and quick they turn out to be one of your best-baked dishes. 

Crescent hot dog recipeMy daughter is fond of these great hot dog rolls. She sees fun rolling them up and topping them with sea salt and some herbs. Many times when I am in a hurry, I use store-bought puff pastry. It saves a lot of time and effort. However, when I want to nicely surprise my whole family I try to make the best homemade dough. These best appetizers are full of flavor with dog filling carefully wrapped in puff pastry. Sometimes, I add some slices of mozzarella next to the dogs as it makes them more lingering.      

This is our family-favorite recipe I have owed from my grandma. I am not too perfect at wrapping ideally, but trust me they have one of the best tastes. These hot dog rolls will make a nice appearance on your table or weekend getaway. Also, they are yummy appetizers tasting great even cold, and great snacks for picnics or Sunday potlucks. This dish has become one of our quintessential side dishes when we party or go out with friends. My mom uses to make homemade sausages mixing pork and beef meat, however, I always try to buy the best market sausages.

How to make the pastry?

For the best tasting hot dog bread rolls, I always try to make homemade Italian dough. This dough is made of integral flour which is both healthy and puffy. There are many types of Italian dough available on the internet, however, this easy but worth the time and patience recipe, is the one I want to share with you.

How to make sausage rolls?

Well, when the dough is ready to be used I pour some flour on the working surface and cut it into 4 medium pieces. Take one 1 piece of dough and start stretching it finely with the rolling pin.

I take my hot dogs, in some of the rolls I add finely sliced mozzarella for a better taste. I cut the dough 10mm horizontally. Lay a sheet of pastry on the baking tray, while the oven is already preheated at 180C.

I place hot dog rolls with some space between them and brush the egg wash over each roll. Top some sesame seeds and sea salt for a nice aspect and a crunchy taste. I adore the granulated sea salt over the pastry. I usually bake 2 baking trays for about 25 minutes or until golden and cooked through.  Watch the video below

These classic and tasty hot dog bread rolls are quick and easy to make. It is one of those simple, but flavorful snacks you want to serve hot or cold. Both versions are okay if you have a fluffy and soft pastry.  

What kind of sausages to use?

I usually buy market sausages made of both pork and beef. Rarely, do I buy smoked sausages with fat? My mum is mixing the meat by herself and makes them 100% homemade sausage rolls. However, it takes time, so for me, the best option is to buy good quality ones. If you want to make mini appetizers, just cut halves and roll them up in smaller dough sheets.

Can you make hot dog rolls in advance?

Easily! You can make the dough in advance and freeze it for up to several days. When you want to bake the rolls, just take them out and leave them at room temperature to defrost. When the pastry has defrosted easily roll it up around the hot dog. Also, you can prepare hot dog rolls ahead and freeze them in an airtight ziplock bag. Do not cook them before freezing. Pull out when you want to serve them and bake evenly. It will save you a lot of time. 

 Recipe tips:

  • You can use any kind of hot dog you like. 
  • Also, you can use store-bought puff pastry or a homemade one.
  • Sometimes I garnish the rolls with oregano spices as I like the combination of sea salt, dried oregano, and sausages. 
  • One more great tip I have taught is to avoid opening the oven door while baking. Try to look through the glass and in case you see them burning, only then open it and took off the oven.
  • Serve these best appetizers with ketchup or mustard. 

Easy and a satisfying process, these decadent hot dog rolls are truly flavorful, tasty, and crunchy. One of the best snacks on the table or weekend getaways. These flaky pastries stuffed with hot dogs should have a nice golden color. I think that my recipe easily described step-by-step will be an inspiration for you.
