I rarely cook on a Friday evening. It's our night to eat out, to get out of the house for awhile. But we've been gone so much this week that eating out just didn't even sound good. So I made something quick, easy, and very kid-friendly.
You start with a package of hot dogs (mine were all-beef - I really won't touch any other kind, even though everyone else in my house doesn't seem to mind). Cut a slit down the middle of each one, almost all the way through and almost all the way to the end.

8 hot dogs
Grated cheddar cheese (or sliced American cheese)
1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
Heat oven to 375°. Slit hot dogs to within 1/2" of ends; stuff cheese into each slit. Separate dough into triangles. Wrap dough triangle around each hot dog. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, cheese side up. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
