Pigs in Blankets with Sriracha Honey Mustard Sauce

The football is known as the "pig skin".... so pigs in blankets have got to make a play at my Super Bowl table. These pigs in blankets are easily made at home using store-bought crescent dough (the stuff in a tube) and hot dogs.  I also made a sweet and spicy mustard dipping sauce to make it extra yummy.  They are easy and definitely a touch down for my family.

1 tube crescent dough in a tube
1 packet favorite style hot dogs ( you can even make these veggie friendly by using tofu dogs)
sesame seeds (optional)

1/2 cup Dijon mustard
2-3 Tbs sriracha sauce (to taste)
2 Tbs mayonnaise
1-2 Tbs honey (to taste)

Note: Always use the lower amounts suggest in the recipe.  Then adjust with more sauces or ingredients as needed to your taste.   

Note 2:  You can also melt some cheese for a dipping sauce (but it will have to be kept warm so it's easy to dip)

Note3 :  You can go old school and serve with simple yellow mustard.

Separate the crescent rolls per package instructions.  Then cut each crescent triangle into half.  Cut hot dogs in half for regular length hot dogs and into three for bun length hot dogs. Roll with crescent dough from wide end to the tip. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. 
Bake according to package temperature recommendation.  Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 15-20 minutes or until gold brown.   Mix dipping sauce and adjust to taste or serve simply with yellow mustard.  Enjoy.
