Hot Dogs À La Bedroll

1 can (10 ounces/284 g) refrigerated biscuits

1 2/3 cups grated cheddar cheese

5 hot dogs

  1. Separate the dough into two biscuits for each hot dog. On a piece of wax paper, press and flatten two biscuits together until the dough is large enough to wrap around a hot dog.

  2. Sprinkle 1/3 cup grated cheese over the flattened dough. Put a hot dog on top, and wrap the dough around it. Seal the edges of the dough by pinching them together. Repeat for the remaining hot dogs.

  3. Insert a roasting stick or skewer into each hot dog, and cook it over coals.
