Happy Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you! Today I wanted to share with you yet another child friendly Star Wars dinner. Basically this is pigs in a blanket all wrapped up and then painted with a colored egg wash. My boys were very excited to eat this and yes, I had to tell them more than once to not play with their dinner. (as they were trying to fight with their "lightsabers" at the table.)
4 hot dogs
cheese slices, optional
1 egg, beaten
black, red, and blue food coloring
*each tube will make 4 hot dogs, so multiply this as needed. For every tube you use, beat another egg so you have enough egg wash
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Unroll the crescent rolls into 4 rectangles. You will need to pinch together the perforations.
Place cheese slices, if desired in the middle, and then place a whole hot dog in the middle.
Roll up the ends over the ends of the hot dog, and then roll it lengthwise to entirely cover the hot dog. gently squeeze one top to look more pointy to be the tip of your lightsaber.
Place hot dogs on a parchment lined baking pan. Make sure everything is pinched together tightly or else cheese will ooze out of your lightsabers. (or solve that problem by not using cheese!)
