De-Pudged Pigs in a Blanket
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min


  • 8 fat-free or nearly fat-free franks about 45 calories each (like Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Beef Franks or Hoffy Extra Lean Beef Franks or your favorite hot dog brand)
  • 1 package Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent refrigerated dough
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    Cut each hot dog into 4 even pieces. Set aside.

    Take one of the eight triangle-shaped portions of the dough and stretch or roll it out slightly, making it into a larger triangle.

    Then, cut this piece of dough into four long, narrow triangles.

    Beginning at the base of each of these triangles, roll one hot dog piece up in each until the point of the triangle wraps around the center. Place your blanketed pigs on a large, ungreased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients, so that you have 32 pigs in a blanket. Be sure to evenly space them, as the dough will expand while baking.

    Place sheet in the oven, and cook for about 12 minutes, until dough appears slightly browned and crispy. Enjoy!
