For now, I am without electronic eyes - I foolishly left my camera on the taxi and hope is fading that I will be able to recover it. I'll add a picture next time I make these little treats; feast your eyes on these meanwhile. Pigs in blankets are not much work if you have baking mix on hand, and not much more from scratch. The crescent roll approach is really popular but not really frugal. This recipe makes 20-24, which was a perfect sized batch for the toaster oven.
Take one and 1/4 cup of biscuit mix (or work together one cup of flour, five tablespoons of butter or shortening, and one tsp of baking powder) and mix in a bowl with enough milk to make a rollable dough. Start with 1/3 cup of milk and add more if dough is too stiff. Knead dough about four times and let sit for an hour, then roll out on a floured surfact to a thickness of about 1/6 inch. Open a package of 24 cocktail franks or weiners cut in half and wrap them in blankets of biscuit dough about two inches by one inch. Arrange seam side down on oiled baking sheet (you can make ahead to this point, then cover well and chill up to one day). Cook at 375 deg F for about 15 minutes til pigs are warmed through and blankets are toasty. Try to make them shortly before eating, since they are amazing warm. Serve with mustard.
