Pilgrim Hats

These Pilgrim Hats are a spin on pigs in a blanket. My kids love to cook and anytime they can help me in the kitchen I let them. They had so much fun making these Pilgrim Hats, plus its something that kids can contribute to the Thanksgiving table.


Start by chopping a couple of hot dogs into fourths.

Stand them up on a parchment covered cookie sheet.


Break open a can of crescent rolls and separate into triangles.


Drap the triangles over each piece of hot dog.


Use a small cookie cutter or glass dipped in flour to cut off the excess dough. I have a ton of these tall glasses from The Old Spaghetti Factory floating around my house.  Any one else have that problem?


Get some cute assistants to help you with the rest.


I don’t think my 18 month old was that into it :)


Once all of the hot dogs are covered, bake them off.


While the pilgrim hats are baking, slice up some lunch meat into strips and cut some cheddar cheese into little squares.


Then just wrap the lunch meat around the hat like a belt and place the cheddar cheese square over the ends where it meets.


So fun for all ages!
