Pigs in a Blanket

Wow, are Pigs in a Blanket ever scrumptious! We love this tasty, savory and amazing recipe. Crescent rolls and Li’l Smokies are the only ingredients, yet it tastes so wonderfully. This delicious recipe has been around for a long time. It is SO easy to make too. Just roll out the crescent dough, cut the triangles in thirds, and wrap the Li’l Smokies in each miniature triangle. Bake and enjoy!

Pigs in a Blanket is a fabulously satisfying snack and a wonderfully tasty treat for breakfast or brunch. They’re also great for tailgating parties or as an appetizer with finger foods and other party foods. We used to make these all the time when we (or someone in our class) brought breakfast each Sunday to our Sunday school class. While Pillsbury is the creator of this recipe, I actually got this recipe verbally from friends who used to bring it in all the time for breakfast in our Sunday school classes each week.

I originally posted this recipe in July of 2012. I’ve recently remade it and updated the pictures which are a lot clearer than the original batch. This time I made three batches of Pigs in a Blanket, one with turkey sausage, one with beef, and one with pork and cheese. All of them turned out excellently. If you’re looking for a great recipe for holiday breakfasts, office parties, as finger foods to take along to potlucks or family gatherings, or just for your own country breakfasts, then consider this amazingly easy recipe. Pigs in a Blanket are finger-lickin’ good!

Place each sausage on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray or place on parchment paper.

Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes or until done. Don’t overbake or the crescent rolls will get too brown.
