Think Pigs-In-A-Blanket...on steroids.  If you are trying to obey a heart healthy diet then you should run far, far away from this recipe.  However, if you're up for some gluttony, read on.  One of our favorite restaurants in town makes these and they are delicious!  There is nothing better than sitting in a local dig downtown eating some good grub.  While I am sure that this doesn't come close to their recipe, it's still pretty damn good.  Now, have a pep talk with your heart...tell it that this meal isn't a regular thing and that it is not necessary to cough repeatedly.  I am still coming up with something you should tell your thighs though.
