Vegetarian pigs in blankets are fun to make and to eat

See also

Love pigs in blankets but not the idea of eating actual pigs? You are going to love meatless pigs in blankets (would that make these faux pigs in blankets? Imposter pigs in blankets?). They are just as quick and easy to make as can be, and with a good quality meatless frank (the author likes SmartDogs from Trader Joe) these are going to disappear quickly. These are great hot or cold, with or without salsa or other dipping sauces. Perfect for a quick lunch or for tucking into lunch boxes! Hulls’ Trace cheddar from Blue Jacket Dairy at 2nd Street Market would be an especially fine choice.
