Quick Fix

My son is a picky eater.  Here is one of my quick fix lunches that I know most kids would enjoy.  Today's lunch consists of the ever so fun pigs in a blanket!

As much as I would love to make my own pastry for these...it is Pilsbury to the rescue!!  I simply wrapped some chicken hot dogs with crescent roll dough and baked them off at 350 until golden.  They are perfect for dunking into tomato soup (which is in the thermos) and a welcomed change to your average soup and sandwich combo lunch. 

In the Goodbyn lunch today:  Two pigs in a blanket with ketchup on the side, strawberries, dill pickles, Crush yogurt, Baby Bel cheese, tomato soup (thermos), a few small chocolates and a container of water. 

There are plenty of alternatives to just the plain pigs in a blanket as well.  You can use sausage instead of hot dogs.  You can add cheese and make cheesy dogs.  You can even do chili cheese wrapped crescent dough...these you have to make sure you seal REALLY well so you don't get oozage.  The possibilities are endless when you have some ready made dough at hand.  Let's hear some of your favourite ways to use your crescent roll dough!


  1. We also mold our bread in cupcake tins and stuff them with sloppy joe mix or tuna or a dry chicken pot pie stuffing, the kids eat them up! Love pre-made dough, comes in handy!

  2. Oooh i like the sound of both of your ideas!! =)
