pigs in a poke

This is an old time kids favorite, it works wonderful for on the road.

2 packs of hot dogs
4 packs of the small value busuits
6 slices of cheddar or american cheese.


Cut each hot dog in half. Put a long slit in the middle of the hot dog- do NOT make slit past the edges, or penetrating the other side of the hot dog.

Cut cheese into long pieces, stuff the cheese inside of the slit on the hot dog.

Then take the raw biscuit dough, place the cheese filled side down in the middle of the biscuit, so that the cheese filled side is pressed against the inside of the biscuit.

wrap the rest of the biscuit around the hot dog, and pinch the ends (the ends of the hot dog do not need to be wrapped. Just the middle of it.

Place on cookie sheet, and bake at 425 degree's or until golden brown

Allow to completely cool, wrap in foil, and freeze for 48 hours.

Cost (very cheap)

Hot dogs 6.00 (If you buy the most expensive, and all beef or chicken, or turkey)

Cheese 1.50

Biscuits 2.00

Total 9.50

4 hot dog pieces per serving- .45 cents per serving.

I was listening to NPR radio and they were talking about a pig in a poke today.

At first I couldn't think of where I had read about a pig in a poke until I came today.

Needless to say, this way the first time I had heard it called pig in a poke, LOL.

We call it pig in a blanket!

It's been a very long time since I had one.

Thanks for sharing
