Pigs in a blanket

The quintessential party food: pigs in a blanket. It's meat and bread all wrapped up in a nice, two bite bundle. Sometimes there's cheese and sometimes there's a spicy mustard dip. I went for the latter this time. This is fairly easy to make and a great crowd pleaser. You can make a large batch in minimal time and work. In the most simplest of versions, there are only 2 ingredients: wieners and pastry dough. I like to used all beef wieners and Pilsbury Cresent Roll dough. Some people like to use puff pastry. Take the dough out of the can. Unroll until flat. There should be 8 large pieces. Cut each of those pieces into quarters. You should now have 32 pieces. Take each wiener and place it at the tip of a piece of dough. Then roll and place on a cookie sheet seam side down. Continue with each wiener until all of them are wrapped. Place into a 375 degree oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes until the dough is puffed and browned. Cool slightly and they should come off easily from the pan. Serve with spicy brown mustard. Best served when still warm.
