At age 8, our granddaughter Allison Perdue, loves to make these. She tells me that her 6-year old brother can make them too. She got the recipe from summer camp, but changed the main ingredient to Frank’s franks. If you can’t find Frank’s franks, use any chicken hot dog. It will have much less fat than regular franks. I’ve watched Ally make these, and sometimes the biscuits stay wrapped around the frank, and sometimes they open during cooking. Ally says they’re okay either way.
2 biscuits from a tube of buttermilk refrigerator biscuits, uncooked
1 chicken frank
1 tablespoon of grated cheddar cheese, or more, to taste
Lay the biscuits side by side with the sides touching. Pinch together the parts that are touching and then, using your palms or a rolling pin, press or roll the biscuits into a single rectangle that’s hot dog shaped, only wider. Lay a frank on the dough and then sprinkle the frank with the cheese. Pierce frank in several places with fork. Wrap the dough around the frank, pinch closed, and then bake according to the directions for cooking the biscuits.
