Fire-Roasted Weenie Wraps

In the midst of kitchen goings-on during the weekends, the kids still think they need to eat three meals a day.  Funny how that works.  It would be super easy to make a drive-thru run for lunch, but number one, that gets expensive, and number two, I don't think we need to eat that crap when we don't have to.

Okay, maybe this isn't the most healthy alternative to fast food, but at least it's homemade, sort of, and the kids had a blast cooking them.  And I was able to sneak in some fruit to go alongside.  Can't pull that one off with nuggets and fries.

All you need is hotdogs (we used the cheese filled ones), and tube biscuits.  I bought the small ones, that come ten to a tube, and used two on each dog.  You could use just one if you have the bigger biscuits.

Wrap the biscuits around the hotdogs and use your fingers to pinch them closed tight.

Get your roastin' stick out, spear those puppies, and roast them over the fire until the biscuit is puffed up and cooked through.
Should only take about 5 minutes if your fire is nice and hot.

Let 'em cool enough to pull them off the roaster, then doctor them up the way you like 'em.
I'm a mustard girl.

Toast the fact that you have a yard you can hide out in while your kitchen is in shambles, and dig in.

Yes, I'm aware that the length of my fingernails, or lack-there-of, is a freak of nature.

If you're not a hotdog eater, roasting biscuits over the fire, just by themselves, is beyond delicious.
Wrap them around your roaster, then cook over the fire until they're puffed up and brown.
Slather on some butter and homemade jam.
Amazingly delicious.

Have a good weekend!

Please see my sidebar for the parties I link up to.


  1. We call them pigs in a blanket... how fun to roast them!!

    Have you ever tried out taco del mar?? That is my go to place to take the kids out to eat and it is pretty healthy compared to the other options out there. And good too.

  2. It's just plain old mustard for me, too, Mindy...AND not too much either. What a fun thing-I have never done them outside but I have baked them in the oven. This would be fun for the kids- xo Diana

  3. You're magical to make hot dogs look so tasty. And what a nice experience for the kids - a cookout is always fun.


I love and appreciate all your comments. So don't be shy, just say it!
