When our kids were small, one of our favorite suppers was Pigs in Blankets. This tasty concoction is made by wrapping biscuit dough around frankfurters and baking them. Tonight my husband and I enjoyed them without the kids, who are now grown, just because it’s cold outside. Here is my recipe.
Cheesy Herb Pigs in Blankets
Combine 2 cups of unbleached flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, 3/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup grated cheese (I used sharp cheddar), and a handful of fresh parsley, minced.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board and knead about 10 times. Roll or pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Cut this into 16 pieces long enough to wrap around a frank. Prepare 8 skinless beef franks (I used extra long) by cutting each in half.
