Jessica’s son Levi loves hot dogs, and recently, Jessica made a version of pigs in a blanket with tortillas.

She thought she’d try her hand at making traditional ones, but with a pie crust. Levi helped in the process and even got to make some yummy treats with the left over dough.

These pigs in a blanket are super easy to make, and you can even freeze them to eat as a snack later.

This segment aired on California Cooking with Jessica Holmes Episode 67.
