These Pigs in a Blanket are perfect for when I’m craving a hot dog!
I usually only have hot dogs a couple times a year. I love going to a baseball game and getting a hot dog!
Unfortunately it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to get one of those this year, so I made Pigs in a Blanket. 🙂
The Pigs in a Blanket I made are 7 points each. I used turkey hot dogs which were 4 points each and I wrapped them in reduced-fat crescent rolls which are 3 points each.
You can make these even lighter by using fat free turkey dogs. They are only 1 point each!
That would make each Pig in a Blanket only 4 points each.
Another great thing is that kids love these! I love healthier meal options that even my kids like.
Do you eat your hot dogs with ketchup of mustard? I like mustard! But my kids like ketchup.
Whichever you prefer you can serve it up with these Pigs in a Blanket. I like that mustard is 0 points. If you prefer ketchup make sure you add the points.
Yield: 8 (7 points per serving for blue, green and purple)
- 8 turkey hot dogs
- 1 8 oz. can Pillsbury reduced-fat crescent rolls
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Unroll the crescent rolls and tear along the perforated lines making 8 triangles.
Place one turkey dog onto the wide end of the triangle then roll it up. Repeat until all 8 are done.
In a small bowl combine the Italian seasoning, garlic powder and dried minced onion. Whisk the egg in a separate bowl with a little bit of water. Brush the egg wash over the crescent roll then add a pinch of the seasoning to the top.
Bake 11-15 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden brown.
