Pigs in a Blanket

July 25, 2012Teresa

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 Lit’l Smokies in each miniature triangle. Bake and enjoy!

Pigs in a Blanket is a fabulously satisfying snack or appetizer. It’s also a wonderfully tasty treat for breakfast or brunch. They’re terrific at 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. Pillsbury is the creator of this recipe. However, I actually got this recipe verbally from friends who used to bring it for Sunday breakfast each week.

I originally posted this recipe in July of 2012. I’ve recently remade it (March 2014) 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 had turkey sausage, one had beef, and one had pork and cheese. All of them turned out excellently.

This is a great recipe for holiday breakfasts and office parties. It’s a delicious finger food to take along to potlucks or family gatherings too. If you enjoy big country breakfasts, then consider this amazingly easy recipe. Pigs in a Blanket are finger-lickin’ good!
