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 Broiled Pineapple 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!

These were so good! I haven't had pigs in the blanket since I was young, and these really were a special treat. I was hesitant about using cheese, but was pleasantly surprised. The taste wasn't overbearing, and just added a nice creamy contrast to the crispy croissant. Extremely easy to make and very tasty, this is a lovely recipe!

This recipe is a classic. I served it on a lazy night with homemade mac and cheese and a salad. Of course, there was ketchup and mustard on the side for dipping.

Always a hit with the kids! I liked the idea of cutting the hot dogs and putting the cheese down the middle. I used American cheese, reduced-fat crescent rolls and reduced-fat hot-dogs. The kids enjoyed dipping them in mustard and ketchup. Thanx!

I really like these things. They took me back to my childhood when my mom used to make them for me. My kids said to add this to our family cookbook (for when they grow up and start cooking). I served these with baked asparagus and applesauce, as you suggested. It was a wonderful dinner!

We had a pool party this summer and while we grilled out for the adults, we made these for the kids. The adults were actually complaining because they didn't get any of these. A real hit with the kids too. My husband is asking for these for lunch today! Thanks for posting.
