    For the kids' pigs, take one triangle and place the wide end closest to you. Trim the American cheese into narrow strips and stuff into the opening in the hot dog. Place the hot dog at the base of the crescent roll, then roll it up and place on an ungreased sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining hot dogs.

    For the adults' pigs, take a triangle and place the wide end closest to you again. Place a brat at the base and fill the opening with sauerkraut. Drizzle mustard over the top of the sauerkraut before rolling up the crescent roll. (Add a strip of cheese too, if desired.) Roll the same way you did with the kids' pigs and place on same sheet pan.
