Classic Pigs in a Blanket Recipe! This is one of the most popular appetizer recipes to make for holiday parties, football parties, or a snack.
Pigs in a Blanket
This is one of our go-to game-day appetizer foods. Quick and easy to make with small cocktail sausages wrapped in a warm crescent roll blanket.
If you are hosting a party we suggest doubling this recipe to make sure you have more than enough crescent dogs.
These mini handheld appetizers tend to go quickly. If you end up with leftovers they can be reheated easily.
This delicious appetizer is also called Mini Crescent Dogs, crescent roll pigs, pigs in a blanket, few other things.
- Crescent Rolls
- Little Smokies
Crescent Rolls - We love using crescent rolls for this recipe. They are easy to find at most grocery stores and super versatile. You can also use puff pastry or biscuit dough.
Little Smokies - You can use any flavor of lit's smokies. You can also use Vienna sausages if that is all you can find.
Toppings - To add a little extra to your pigs in a blanket you can top them with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, everything but the bagel seasoning
Cheese - You can add in a bit of cheese wrapped around the little smokie for cheesy goodness.
Parchment Paper - I love that I can use parchment paper to help make it easier to remove the pigs in a blanket. They also make clean-up a breeze. If you are not using parchment paper you will want to spray non-stick cooking spray on your baking sheet to help the cookies not stick.
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. You don't have to worry; you will remove the crescent mini weenies from the oven and have them slide right off.
How to make Pigs in a Blanket with Crescent Rolls
Preheat the oven.
Step 1 - Cut the crescent triangles into 3 pieces. I like to use a pizza cutter to get an even cut.
Spread the little smokies on a paper towel so the extra juices drip onto the paper towels. This step helps prevent soggy pigs in a blanket.
Step 2 - Wrap 1 strip of dough around each little smoke starting with the thick end of the dough slice.
Step 3 - Bake until golden brown.
Serve with ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce, comeback sauce, bloomin onion sauce, cheese sauce, or Big Mac Sauce,
How to reheat pigs in a blanket
Heat the oven to 350 degrees and warm them for 4-5 minutes until heated through.
This recipe can be adapted to wrapping full-size hot dogs in a triangle of crescent dough.
For Christmas, you can make a double batch of these and formed them into a wreath on a large circular platter. Add a dipping sauce in the middle and some greens to make this appetizer festive.
