Can I use other flavors of the little Smokies?

Yes, I’ve made these with the turkey little Smokies and the classic beef little Smokies; another great option is to use the little cheddar Smokies for an extra burst of flavor.

Can I make these with an average size hotdog?

Of course, you can. Instead of cutting the crescent roll into thirds, leave it whole and wrap the entire hotdog. Keep an eye on it. You might need to add another minute or two to the cooking time.
