Pigs in a Blanket

This is one of my grandma’s favorite things to eat. My mom and I went over to her house to make them for her and she decided to be part of the process and help. It was a challenge having all three of us in the kitchen, but we made it work.

When making pigs in a blanket, most people think to use beef for the meat. We decided to use Turkey. When we were at the store we were looking at both beef and turkey, and in comparison, the beef had 14g of fat and the turkey only had 4g of fat. Based on that information, it was easy to make a choice. This is a great recipe to use for finger food at a party its simple and quick to make.
