Super Bowl LV Snack Attack: Classics Vs. Healthy .
Slide Nr 7
Pigs In A Blanket – Yes, yes, we know that the UK has a different perspective on ‘pigs in blankets’, which are small sausages wrapped in delicious bacon, for the uninitiated. But hey, this is the Super Bowl, so we’re sticking with the US approach here. Typically, pigs in a blanket involve hot dog or cocktail wieners that are quartered, wrapped in pastry dough, baked to a buttery crisp, and served with mustard and ketchup. The best way to make this recipe healthier is to avoid it all together, but if you must indulge the craving, substitute mini turkey dogs – or even a vegetarian meat alternative – for beef or pork, and try giving them a ‘belt’ instead of a ‘blanket’. The amount of dough you use for each little ‘pig’ is ultimately up to you. [Photo: DSC_8861/Wikimedia Commons]
