Smothered Pigs in a Blanket

You remember Pigs in a Blanket, right?  Those doughy-bread-covered hot dogs that we got in our school cafeterias growing up.  For some reason, I have always preferred that my baked goods be ever-so-slightly undercooked and doughy and I was always delighted when these were on the menu at school because I knew that the cafeteria ladies must have pulled them out the second that the timer went off because they were always just a tiny bit doughy in the center, but they were so good. 

Well, this is my modified version of that school cafeteria favorite.  For these, I used 40 calorie hot dogs from Hebrew National.  They also happen to be 97% fat free in addition to being only 40 calories each (double bonus) and they don’t taste like cardboard.  I used Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls as the blanket, baked them according to the directions on the side of the Crescent Roll package.  After they were baked, I warmed a can of Hormel Turkey Chili and "smothered" the pigs in a blanket.  

They definitely weren’t like the cafeteria pigs, but for someone on a diet, they’ll do.
