Who doesn’t love these? Well, I guess vegetarians don’t. But other then vegans and vegetarians, people love these! And they are so easy, so really, what’s not to love? Okay, maybe all the processed pig product and the partially hydrogenated oil in the dough. But, occasionally, what the heck. Oh, and for my white trash party, I HAD to make these.
You can make them look fancier by making some interesting dipping sauces. Or you can stick with the standard BBQ sauce, Ketchup and Mustard.
makes 16 pigs in a blanket (16 pieces)
1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls (I use the store brand reduced fat kind)
4 hot dogs, cut into 4 pieces each
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Unwrap the crescent rolls. There will be 8 triangle pieces in each tube. 2 triangle pieces connect together to form an odd looking rectangle. Pinch together the seem that connects the 2 triangles together.
Cut each rectangle into 4 strips.
*You will get 16 strips out of one tube of dough.
Wrap a strip of dough around a little piece of hot dog. Put it onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for about 15 minutes, until they are golden brown.
They should come off of the baking sheet easily, and if not, just use a spatula to scoop them off.
Serve them while their hot!!
