Twisty Pigs in a Blanket

Twisty Pigs in a Blanket
 2 bun length hot dogs (lengthwise cut into halves, then lengthwise halves again and then in half, making 16 pieces)
 3 slices of cheese (each slice cut into six strips) or you can use string cheese cut into fourths - you will need 16-18 pieces
 6 frozen rolls (thawed and cut into thirds) (you will only use 16 pieces - so you can double to twists on two of them or make just two with cheese)
Fry Sauce
 ¾ cup mayo
 ¾ cup ketchup
 1 tbsp mustard
Twisty Pigs in the Blanket


First, you will take the rolls (thawed) and cut them into thirds.

Then you will take two bun length hot dogs and cut them lengthwise into halves, then lengthwise halves again and then in half. Making 16 pieces.

Next, you will slice the cheese. Take a brick (we used a 2 lb one) and cut 4-5 slices. Or you can use cheese sticks and cut them into fourths. Now take these slices and cut them into about 5 pieces each (so you have about 16-20 pieces of cheese).

Once you have these ready, you will start making your Twisty Pigs in a Blanket. Take one of the pieces of dough and roll in between your hands (like you are making a snake) until you have a piece that is about 6-8" long.

Put a piece of cheese with a piece of hot dog together and wrap the dough around it in a twist pattern. Pinch the ends together so they don't come loose. Place them all on a baking sheet, slightly spaced.

Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10-14 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned. While the Twisty pigs in a blanket are cooking, you will make the fry sauce.

Serve by putting a couple of spoonfuls into the jar (cup or bowl) and then put the cooked Twisty Pigs in a Blank "head first". This is a great way to serve them, especially to kids.

Makes 16 servings (1 serving = 1 twisty pig in a blanket)
