“That’s some Pig!” in a Blanket

by Shanna Snider on April 24th, 2012

That’s right folks, it’s Pigs In A Blanket Day!  And isn’t that wrapped up little piggie as cute as can be?!  This popular bite-sized finger food is a cinch to make and perfect for a quick after school snack, easy appetizer, game day goodies or my personal favorite, Mummy Dogs on Halloween!

All you need is  1 package of crescent rolls and 1 pack of cocktail sausages or hot dogs cut in half.

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Next, roll out and separate the crescent dough triangles, then cut them into two triangles.  Place a cocktail sausage at the wide end of the triangle and roll it up.  Put the rolled up little piggies on a greased baking sheet with the tip of the crescent underneath (this keeps the pig snuggly tucked inside).  Pop the pan into the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and crispy on top.

The best part of eating Pigs in a Blanket is the dipping sauces!  I love honey mustard with mine, but cheese sauce works, too!  What’s your favorite way to eat these tasty treats?

 

PS – Who knows the book referenced in the title??

    Is it “Charlotte’s Web”?

      It sure is! And it’s been a long time since I’ve read it even though I loved it (way back in the day!). Eating pigs in the blanket while reading this classic sounds like a good evening to me.
