1/2 cup sauerkraut, drained and roughly chopped

3 tablespoons pickle relish

1 8-ounce tube crescent roll dough

2 ounces Swiss cheese, shredded (about 1/2 cup)

24 beef cocktail franks

1 large egg, lightly beaten

Caraway seeds, for topping

Thousand Island dressing and/or spicy brown mustard, for dipping (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine the sauerkraut and relish in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Unroll the crescent dough and pinch the seams together with your fingers. Cut the dough in half lengthwise, then slice each half crosswise into 12 strips. Spread about 1 teaspoon of the sauerkraut-relish mixture on each strip of dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border on one short end. Sprinkle with the cheese. Place 1 frank on each strip of dough and roll the dough around the frank, pressing lightly to seal.
  3. Transfer to the baking sheet seam-side down; brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle with caraway seeds. Bake until the dough is golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve with Thousand Island dressing and/or mustard.
