If you're of Eastern European descent, pigs in a blanket often means stuffed cabbage rolls, which at least adds a vegetable serving.
Typically, pigs in a blanket are served as appetizers at parties or social gatherings and often accompanied with a mustard-based dipping sauce. But, let's be honest, you really can't go wrong with sausage in dough.
