Membrillo is a quince paste that is served in Spanish cuisine usually with cheese and crackers. Manchego is a Mexican cheese that is smooth and creamy. If you can't find Membrillo in your local markets it is available on Amazon. The sweetness of the membrillo and the creamiest of the Manchego cheese along with the smoky sausage elevates the classic pigs in a blanket to a whole other level.
