Healthier Pigs in a Blanket

Today for lunch I decided I was going to make a Hungry Girl recipe because with all the damn sweets I've made this weekend it's time for something healthier! I whipped out my Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200 and went straight for the recipe I had been looking forward to: Smothered Pig in a Blanket!!!

One of my favorite foods is hot dogs! In fact my very favorite Birthday meal is a burnt hot dog and my Grammy's potato salad. Now hot dogs are not healthy by any means and even Turkey dogs aren't that much better for you. But leave it to Hungry Girl to keep me happy!

I of course had all the ingredients: Fat-Free (or nearly fat-free) hot dog, low-fat veggie chili, 1 serving (or in my case 2) Reduced-Fat Crescent Rolls, and 1/2 (or in my case 1) slice of fat free cheddar cheese (I used fat free American Cheese, since my cheddar cheese was already shredded).

Take your crescent roll and stretch/roll it out to make it a little larger. Place your 1/2 slice of cheese at the base of the crescent roll, then top it with your hot dog.

And then just roll it like you would a normal crescent roll. Pop them onto a greased baking sheet and then slide the sheet into the preheated 375 degree oven.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.

And voila!! You've got yourselfs a couple pigs in the it's time to smother them....

some amazing veggie chili!!!!!!!!! Which you will have heated up on the stove or in the microwave. In my case the microwave cause I was being lazy!

Just slather that chili on top of your pig and enjoy!

And enjoy you will...I devoured them both! I usually only eat one hot dog but these babies were so delicious!
Hot dog lovers you must try Hungry Girl's Smothered Pig in a Blanket!

you know I used to love hotdogs until I saw how they were made. I haven't had one in years. But these look really good.

Until the past few months, I couldn't stand hot dogs. Hated them. But now, I crave them all the time and I don't know why! These look sooooooooo good.
