Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Healthier Pigs in a Blanket



Healthier “Pigs in a Blanket”

Makes 32
Serving size: 1Pig in a blanket
Weight Watchers Points: 2 pp+ plus hotdog and cheese, mine came out to be 3 pp+ each
I love the original recipe from Heavenly Homemakers. However, the Weight Watchers point value and total fat was WAY too much. I decided to adapt it. I like my adaption even better! The dough recipe can even be made into pizza pockets and pop tarts! YUMMM!!!

I made these with cheese this time, next time I probably won't. 

These warm up great as leftovers and can be frozen. (I’d bake them first before freezing, then pull them out and rewarm them in the oven for a few minutes.)
