Pigs in a Blanket are one of the easiest comfort and party foods to make using a variety of cheese, refrigerated crescent rolls and everything bagel spice. You can whip up a batch of these delicious lunch and snack party dogs in a matter of minutes. I love to serve the mini dogs at my parties with Hot Shrimp Dip, Easy Taco Dip, and Potato Skins. They are so easy that even the kids can help with rolling them.
