Appetizers for dinner

Last night was the season kick-off for NFL and the Giants were playing. With the husband being a huge Giants fan, I decided to try to make up for being the slacker wife in recent weeks. I prepared an all appetizer dinner consisting of: piglets-in-blankets, totino's pizza rolls, a plate of carrots, spinach dip, spicy hummus and homemade whole wheat pita chips, and tabbouleh. In all fairness, the pita chips, spinach dip and hummus were made over the weekend and I only baked the pizza rolls. The pigs in a blanket are super easy, fast, a crowd pleaser and actually really tasty.
Piglets in a blanket
Makes 32 piglets

Ingredients:
1 package of lil' smokies smoked sausages
1 package of refrigerated croissant dough (I used the pillsbury reduced fat)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 325. Unroll dough and lay one triangle out on cutting board. Cut the triangle into 4 narrow triangles. Take a little sausage and lay on short flat side of triangle. Roll it up so that the point of the triangle is left overlapping the dough. Place on a cookie sheet. Repeat this with the remaining three triangles. Repeat the entire process with dough and sausages. You'll probably have about 10 of those little sausages left over and if you sneak a couple, I won't tell. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve em with mustard, ketchup or barbeque sauce.
