Cheesy Sriracha Corn Dogs

(originally made 3/2013)

Snow day today, so scrambled to come up with a lunch we all could eat.  Hot dogs defrost real fast, so started peeking through my recipes and came up with this one from Pillsbury.  

Tim doesn't like cornmeal or heat, so he just got cheese stuffed dogs in crescents.   Jake likes cornmeal but no heat, so his I brushed with a little melted butter before I rolled it.  Mine got the full treatment, sriracha in with the cheese, then brushed over the wrapped dog before rolling it in cornmeal.    I did full dogs, not little bites due to time constraints.

Easy, delicious and sure to be repeated.    :)
