Bob's Pigs in Blankets

This is an old holiday favorite of my best friend's family. They make it every year. His family calls them pigs, but I think it is some variation of beef rouladen anyway, it's certainly delicious! I throw them in the slow cooker for about 5 hours instead of cooking them on the stove top for 3.
