I am about to show you two of my go-to holiday appetizers and they couldn’t be simpler. I’m using Immaculate Baking Company’s Organic Crescent Rolls to create both of them. This company makes a whole bunch of certified organic, gluten free, and non-gmo products and they have a great story to boot!

The first recipe are these Mini Crescent Dogs topped with a sprinkling of white sesame seeds. I also made a dipping sauce which is just vegan sour cream and Dijon mustard whisked together and warmed. You could also use straight yellow mustard if you prefer.
When you unroll the Immaculate Baking Organic Crescent Rolls, you’ll have two squares, each scored into triangles. You’ll take each triangle and cut it into thirds. Each triangular strip gets wrapped around slices of veggies dogs. I cut my veggie dogs into thirds as well.
If you want to get fancy, you could also put cheese inside prior to rolling. I would use slices I think to make rolling a bit simpler.
While we’re doing this, heat a non-stick skillet over medium high heat with the tiniest bit of oil. Dice up one veggie dog and pan fry until a bit crisp. This will be for our next recipe…
And these, my friends, are Cheesy Ranch Crescent Pinwheels. These are MY personal favorite. Be sure to have some extra ranch dressing around for dipping!
I simply unroll two rectangles from the container (so that’s four triangles of the dough) and press the seams together securely.
A layer of ranch dressing topped with shredded cheese, our crispy diced veggie dog and finally, green onions.
Just take the short end of the dough and roll. With a sharp knife, create slices and place onto a lined baking sheet with the Mini Crescent Dogs. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15-17 minutes or until golden.
Allow to cool on the baking sheet before transferring to a serving plate. I create a bunch of these little individual glass bowls of dipping sauces so guests can help themselves.
