(I have, > however, heard some people call little cocktail sausages wrapped in dough > Pigs in a Blanket.) > --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] to my family (upstate ny) pigs in blankets involve dough--not bread. (otherwise, it'd just be a hot dog.) we did the little cocktail ones when i was a kid, but the local restaurant also did big viennas in dough. that's what i always ordered--to a kid, this was haute cuisine. however, pancake chains now call breakfast sausages wrapped in pancakes "pigs in blankets" too (i know IHOP does, and i think perkins does too). by the way, i resent all the talk of mexican food. it makes me homesick. went to a mexican restaurant here and all the dishes had feta in them! i'm down to buying roti and pretending they're tortillas. lynne --------------------------------------------------------------------- M.
