Bob made a shopping run for me and he came home with these great Angus dogs, four in a package. Perfect! I just happened to have a roll of 4 crescents in the fridge. And here's the funny thing; I rarely buy crescent rolls. Not because I don't like them, but because they usually end up on my thighs! But for the holidays I thought I might need them.
I took a dog, made a slit almost but not through, and stuffed it with shredded cheddar cheese. I started with the wide end of the crescent dough and wound it around the dog. Put those puppies into a 375 degree oven and cooked them for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, I thought "why not go all retro?". I took out those leftover mashed potatoes and made four perfectly crusted potato cakes. Next I opened up a can of green beans, tossed in a few cloves of roasted garlic, and a smidgen of bacon grease and cooked those up.
Bob and I got a big kick out of our dinner. And, I might add that my dear husband ate two pigs! A little ketchup on the potato cakes and we were good to go!
Did I mention there were cookies and milk for dessert?
