Pigs in a Blanket or Mini Quiches?
The Better Choice: Mini QuichesBoth are high in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

"The piggy option is a highly processed meat packed with additives," says registered dietitian Mary Ryan, "and the 'blanket' is a refined carbohydrate often made with trans fats."
But… Mini quiches can also have crusts that contain trans fats. Probably best to enjoy one, then go back quickly to the crudités.
Next: Roast Beef or Ham?
