Pigs in a blanket

Have fun with this easy recipe for kids and for adults. A great appetizer to serve at parties. 


8 sheets phyllo dough or puff pastry, defrosted
Nonstick cooking spray
4 turkey or tofu hot dogs, cut into 3 pieces
2 tablespoons skim milk
5 slices low-fat cheddar singles, cut into small trianges (folded in quarters from the corner and torn)
Low-sugar or no corn syrup ketchup


1Preheat oven to 450˚F. Use parchment paper on a large baking sheet.
2Lay 1 sheet of phyllo on a work surface (cover the remaining phyllo with a slightly damp kitchen towel to keep it from drying out). Spray the phyllo sheet generously with cooking spray. Top with another sheet of phyllo. Spray the second sheet of phyllo with cooking spray. Cut the phyllo stack lengthwise into 3 strips (each strip should measure about 3x9 inches).
