Never had pigs in a blanket before but thought my boys would like them. Tried this recipe and the boys thought they were great. They want me to make them more often. I liked the idea of cheese in the middle and that they are quick and easy for those busy nights.

Easy & delish! I used low-fat crescent roll dough, light hot dogs, and 2% cheese slices. A kid pleaser {as well as a picky DH pleaser!} for sure! Served with Recipe #31679 and veggie chips from Central Market for a little balance in the meal. Thanks for sharing!

You can't go wrong with pigs in a blanket! I like to make these as a treat once in awhile for DH. I'll definitely be making them again. Thanks for posting!
