Whimsical Cookery is a site for adults who prefer to eat like children, or perhaps just need to cook for some children. This site contains an aversion to vegetables, a love of fried food and cupcakes, lazy shortcuts, some disturbing creations, and an ignorance of proper culinary practices...

Turkeys In A Blanket (Also works with veggie hot dogs)

Turkeys In A Blanket is a modified recipe that comes from a cookbook I inherited, Betty Crocker's 1965 'Boys and Girls Cook Book'.

You will need:
10-12 Turkey Franks (although beef, pork, and vegetarian hot dogs work as well!)
4 cups bisquick
1 1/4 cup milk

1. Add half off the Bisquick (2 cups) and half of the milk to a large bowl and stir.  Add the second 2 cups of Bisquick and continue to add the rest of the milk until a dough mixture is formed. Stop adding milk at the point in which the dough can be formed into a ball (this should be about 1 1/4 cups milk).
Using your hands to mix dough together (as though you were making bread) speeds up this process but can be sticky!

2. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (approx 175 °C).

3. Place your turkey franks on a plate and microwave on high for 30 seconds.

4. Flour or lightly dust a surface with Bisquick and roll out 1/5 of the dough (this should cover at least 2 hot dogs).

5. Shape into a long rectangle, the width of 1 hot dog.  Dough should be about 1/4 of an inch thick.

6. Place a hot dog at the end of the rectangle and roll until it is covered.  Cut the dough here.  Then pinch the ends together.

7. Repeat steps 4-6 until all are covered and pop them in the oven for 10-12 minutes (flipping halfway through cooking time!)
