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!
Pigs in a Blanket is a great breakfast entree for any occasion!
Don’t Pigs in a Blanket look scrumptious?
These are quick and easy to roll up – great for holiday breakfasts.
Here’s what I did.
You only use two ingredients: Lit’l Smokies and crescent rolls.
Unwrap crescent roll dough and separate into triangles. Cut each triangle in thirds. Roll the sausage beginning at the small end.
Roll sausage in crescent roll dough.
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.
Serve Pigs in a Blanket with your favorite breakfast or appetizer items.
Each one is succulent and mouthwatering!
Yeah, it’s really hard to eat just one! We love serving this at tailgating parties and potlucks!
