Pigs in a Blanket

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

I have been making these for years and usually have them with Baked Beans on a Saturday night. They have a little cheese stuffing and are wraped up in a crescent roll. Then I put mustard and relish on them when they are on my plate. The others just eat them with a little mustard. They are so good.

I'm a vegetarian so I cannot speak for my own taste buds, but I made these for my son's Toy Story Birthday party...I made an appetizer for each character and these corresponded with Slinky Dog...and they were eaten very quickly by all guests so based on that and the ease of making them, I will give them 5 stars.
