    These were really fast and easy to make. Very tasty, but nothing to write home about.

    5 stars for easy and terrific, but 2-3 stars for they're-probably-not-the-healthiest-thing-on-the-planet. My mom used to make these when I was a kid (she used plain old biscuit dough, but the pop-open type or Bisquick also works.) She also used Vienna sausages, although you can use anything, from tiny red-hot links to vegan sausages of some type, regular hot dogs, or polish dogs... just about anything.) With the Vienna sausage pigs-in-a-blanket, try them with grape jam instead of mustard. We loved it as kids, and once in a while I treat myself even now. I make a reasonable facsimile using Vienna sausages or regular hot dogs and either Bisquick or corn muffin mix, and these can be baked, or easiest yet, thrown in the GT Express (which I love, but got mine for $1 at a yard sale. I don't recommend buying one otherwise.) These are way faster than any fast food burger place.
