Piggies in a Blanket

Piggies & A Blip

If it was Halloween I would call these cute little piggies, "mummies," but being that today is a cold rainy day my 5 year old called, these yummy quick dinner bytes, piggies in a blanket. He said they looked real cozy in their blankets.

To make them extra cute we added eyes made of mustard and a mouth made of ketchup. They're the perfect, fun and fast energy food before an evening of baseball practice. I also served it with cut up apple for desert.



11-ounce can of Pillsbury Croissants or Breadsticks
12-pack of hot dogs - I buy the low fat Hebrew National Hot Dogs
Yellow mustard


1. For each piggy separate one Croissants from the roll.

2. Wrap one strip at a time snugly around the hot dog. Depending on the size of the hot dog. Leave about 1/2 inch of hot dog exposed for the face area and continue wrapping the top of the hot dog.

3. Bake the piggies on a cookie sheet at 350┬║ for 15 to 18 minutes or until the Croissants wrapping is golden brown.

4. Remove the piggies from the oven and cool them for 5 minutes. Add yellow mustard eyes and a mouth made of ketchup just before serving. Makes 12 piggies.
