Packed with soy protein from the veggie sausage, these little piglets are a reduced-fat version of the classic crescent-dough wrapped pigs-in-a-blanket. Whether for breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon snack, you only need two ingredients to make the piglets and 2 more ingredients for the dipping sauce. If you prefer traditional sausage, choose low-fat pork or turkey links to keep the calories and saturated fat to a minimum. Try barbeque sauce, ketchup, or low-fat Ranch dressing as an alternative to the homemade honey mustard.
Parents, give your kids confidence in the kitchen by inviting them to help prepare this simple dish. If your children are young, let them cut the dough with safety scissors then wrap the dough around the sausage links.
