Post-Skateboarding Scarfing Material Recipe

Undercover Cops (aka - Pigs In A Blanket)

Scarfing material recipe: Undercover Cops

Popularly known as Pigs In A Blanket, Undercover Cops is the age-old hotdogs wrapped in a biscuit... with some added flair. This appetizer is spiced up by adding a few ingredients not often associated with plain old hotdogs. this recipe can be expanded for more people - we are listing ingredients for feeding 4 people.

Ingredients:

  • 4 hotdogs (yeah, I know. You might have some left over)
  • 2 packages of refrigerated croissant dough.
  • 1 jar of Trader Joe's Eggplant Garlic Spread (you can substitute almost anything that will add a good kick).

Other Stuff You'll Need

  • 1 baking pan.
  • 1 pot (not weed - something to boil water in).

Preparation

This recipe is similar to hotdogs, but not identical. If you didn't know how to make hotdogs, we'd just slap you silly and go about our merry way. You'll be cutting each hotdog into a few parts - we recommend 3 or 4. This is how you will determine how many raw hotdogs and croissants you'll need.

Each cut-up piece of hotdog will go into 1 hunk of croissant dough and rolled up. As an appetizer, most folks will eat 4 of these things. If you cut up each hotdog in quarters (4 pieces, jerk), each un-cut hotdog will be enough for one person. The croissant dough comes in rolls of 8. See how nicely the numbers work out? If you're feeding 4 people, you'll need to cook 4 hotdogs and and have 2 packages of refrigerated croissant dough.

  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a full boil.
  2. Add 4 hotdogs (whole - not cut up) and bring to a boil again and let boil for 3 minutes.
  3. Remove hotdogs from water, cut them into quarters and set aside.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 350°.
  5. Open the rolls (tubes) of croissant dough.
  6. Apply Trader Joe's Eggplant Garlic Spread to each raw triangle of dough.
  7. Plop hotdog piece to each triangle and roll up.
  8. Pinch edges to seal and place on baking pan - spaced 1 inch from each other.

Cooking

I suppose we could have put the hotdog cooking instructions here, but who the Hell doesn't know how to boil water?

  • Gently shove the baking pan into the oven and cook for 12 minutes.
  • Check periodically and remove when tops of croissants are browning.
  • Serve
