Pig In A Blanket

One of my favorite "Daddy's Away" meal as a child was my momma's version of Pig in Blankets. She would take the Lykes hot dogs and wrap them in a slice of American cheese and then fold a slice of "light" bread over both in a triangle shape. Then, she would fasten the Pig in Blanket securely while baking with a toothpick. These little delicacies would bake in a preheated moderate oven - 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes until the dogs were good and sweaty, the cheese melted, and the bread nice and toasted. You will need to check at 5 minute intervals, as you do not want the bread to get too dark.
This was the version of Pig in Blankets that I made for my children and their friends. It was a tradition to serve them after trick or treating on Halloween, often with chili. We would also enjoy them at slumber parties and after Friday night high school football games.
Try these little treats. Your children and grandchildren will love them.
