Monday is Jeffrey’s day. When I made my repeating breakfast and lunch menu, he got to pick breakfast and lunch options for Monday. He picked oatmeal for breakfast. Lunch is pigs in a blanket, peas and applesauce.
I found a great pigs in a blanket recipe at Heavenly Homemaker. I use this recipe, but my procedure is a bit different–more conducive for little helping hands.
Once our dough is mixed, I simply grab out a small golf ball size chunk and put on a plate.
One of the kids smooshes it flat.
Another kid grabs a hot dog quarter and sticks on.
I roll them up…
And then we stick them on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes and dip in ketchup. Unless you don’t like ketchup. Then feel free to eat them plain. But Jeffrey loves ketchup!
Add steamed frozen peas and a scoop of applesauce. Yummy lunch!
The best part? I use 12 hot dogs for this recipe. By cutting each one into quarters we get 48 pigs rolled tightly in little blankets. Since most of my kids are young still, we don’t eat that many for one lunch. I cook 24, and freeze 24.
Next Monday I just pull them out, put them on a cookie sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes. Easy lunch!
