I made these last night Doggy, man O man are these things GREAT!
I used the new Hebrew National large sized dogs (4 to a pack), a can of Hormel Hot Chili w/beans, and Sargento Mexican mix cheese.
They are addicting!!! This recipe is a keeper!
I remember them as sausages (usually small links) wrapped in some kinda biscuit or something, sometimes with cheese on top in a savory spread and other times with syrup for a sweeter taste.
My god those chimidoggies look darn good…
There you go Mark…looks good! (triple the cheese please!)
I’m not quite sure what’s in these particular cabbage rolls. The pic is one I "borrowed" from a Google search. The stuffing in Babcia’s halupkies was a mixture of ground pork and ground beef. I guess the pork is where the "pig" came from. pb
"Wiener Wrap your dog,
Make it roll over
Teach an old dog
A new trick"
I convinced my Mom to try those once. 
I am eating that this weekend
Growing up Pigs in a blanket was an order of sausages wrapped in pancakes at the IHOP. I did make them for after school snacks, hot dogs wrapped in defrosted cresent rolls and baked.
My husband would love those Rebeltruce…!
Growing up, my nan would make ‘Pig’s In a Blanket’….but they were closer to Porkbeak’s friends mothers.
They were what most folks call ‘Stuffed Cabbage’ and they weren’t stuffed with a wiener they were your typical ground beef with rice meat balls stuffed into a cabbage leaf and baked in a nice tomato sauce.
Now I did grow eating ‘Wiener Wings’, which were what folks here are calling ‘Pigs In a Blanket’, could be a hot dog wrapped in cresent dough, or more times then not a precooked dog laid diagonally across a piece of American cheese, laid diagonally across a piece of Wonder Bread, folded into a triangle secured, with toothe picks, and baked until the cheese and bread are toasty. These go great with tomato soup….
Porkbeaks,is that a link of sausage,a hot dog or the standard ground meat mixture in those cabbage leaves ?
To Larry and all burrito dog fans, I present my chimidoggy as I remember from my high school cafeteria
Start with the commercial grade chili. $1.00 a can at Stop and Shop.
The dogs must be inexpensive and pre-coooked.
Place chili, dog and some cheese inside. Roll it up.
Fry to a golden brown
Nicely browned and crispy.
Check ’em out. They are delicious in the best of a junk food kind off way.[:p]
Uncle Vic will back me up on this one.
So far I haven’t seen any mention of this style of a "Pig-In-A-Blanket" so may I contribute to this discussion.
Here in West Michigan Pigs-In-A-Blankets are a traditional Dutch Breakfast treat called "Worstebroodjes" are actually a beef/pork sausage mix and are rolled into the shape of a link sausage but
have no casing and are then wrapped in a pie crust or a layered
flaky pastry wrap and baked till golden brown.
Locally made by Stehouwer Frozen Foods in Grand Rapids.
These commercially prepared frozen pigs are available in most
Michigan grocery stores (Meijer & Spartan Stores) and can also be found at all Gordon Food Service Marketplace stores nationwide.
Fresh made daily Pigs-N-Blankets are also served on the breakfast
menu of the local Russ’ restaurant chain every morning until they

When I was a kid and stayed for dinner at my friends house, his babcia made pigs in a blanket and they looked like this. [:p] pb
I am a big fan of pig’s in a blanket..(Breakfast style)
I like link sausage inside pancakes.. I very rarely eat eggs, so that is a mainstay for me if I go out to breakfast.. If its not on the menu, I just order them seperate and make my own.
BTW….the U. S., National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day is celebrated on April 24 ….[:D]
I started making tortilla wraps for the grandzillas about 15 years ago. I thought I invented them. Well, maybe I did but was probably not the first. And, the first time I saw one for sale was at the State Fair of Texas maybe ??? 8 years ago. My zillas come up w/ all kinds of tortilla wrap variations. Johnsonville Brats, tha ones made w/ cheese inside, is their current trend.
About those pigies, my mom made them w/ the crecent dough, and a dog slit and stuffed w/ cheese. And yes, a gourmet treat as a kid. Hmmm, I’m wantin one now!
