Recipe adapted from Cooking Light.
Cheesy pigs in a blanket
- 1 package crescent dinner rolls sheet pastry (it should come out as one large piece of dough)
- 5 low-sodium, low-fat turkey hot dogs, precooked and sliced in half
- 2 slices low-sodium American cheese
- Ketchup for dipping
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet liberally with cooking spray.
- Cut dough vertically into 4 rectangles. Then cut those rectangles in half (horizontally) and then cut those rectangles diagonally (into triangles).
- Cut cheese into 6 bite size chunks. Place cheese on the wider inside of the dough. Place a sliced hot dog on top of the cheese and roll dough up so it forms a crescent. Repeat until all ingredients have been used.
- Bake for at least 10 minutes, or until crescents are golden brown. Serve with ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
