Vegan Pigs in a Blanket

Vegan Pigs in a Blanket -- Epicurean Vegan

I can’t say I recall having pigs in a blanket much when I was a kid, although I’m sure many of you grew up on snacking on these. Even vegan, they’re  probably not the healthiest, but that’s ok–there’s nothing wrong with some Pillbury Crescent Rolls once in a great while. The Seventh-Grader really wanted to try these, so after a tiny bit of prep, we had a quick snack. I added a little Daiya cheese to one, just to see how it tasted and it was pretty darn good!

1 pkg Pillbury Crescent Rolls (8)
4 Smart Dogs (or other veggie dog of your choice), cut in half
Daiya cheese, optional

Preheat oven to 350. Unroll the dough and separate each piece. Roll up one of the dogs, starting at the wide end.

    I loooooved pigs in a blanket when I ate meat. I never thought about making them with Smart Dogs; I bet they’re even better! Love the addition of Daiya. Perfect with a side of tater tots!

    I just had my first bite into these and they are so delicious! So simple and tasty and I can feel like a kid again! Thank you :)

    These are great but use the Pillsbury Pizza crust instead of Crescents. The Pizza crust dough does not have Palm Oil in it, but the crescent variety does. Palm Oil kills Orangutans ( Check it out…check your peanut butter labels too, as most PB have palm oil… Adams does not :) Enjoy!
