Homemade Pigs in a Blanket

on April 10, 2010

Yet another party snack that nobody can resist. Pigs in a Blanket are a staple at all  our parties and there are never any leftover. I started making my own once I saw how expensive they were to buy already pre-made. It was insane to say the least. So I started making them myself. They are so simple to make and you can make them the morning of your party and keep in the fridge till you’re ready to bake them. I now use the lower fat crescent rolls as the blanket. I have tried the store brands and they are fine, but Pillsbury still tops them all. I sometimes even get the garlic ones. They are delish! Now Pillsbury has the ‘sheets’ of crescent roll dough without the lines also. But as with anything that makes life easier they cost more. So I stick with the regular crescent roll shapes.

Pigs in a Blanket

INGREDIENTS:

1 package of mini beef hot dogs (Nathans or Hebrew National are the best)

1 tube of Pillsbury Crescent rolls

mustard

non-stick cookie sheets

DIRECTIONS:

1. Open the hot dog package and drain the liquid away from the dogs. It’s better if they are dry for this.

2. Open the crescent rolls and separate the dough into four rectangles. Keep two of the triangles together and press the seams together so they form the rectangle. It’s easier to flip over too and press both sides so there are no gaps. Then slice the rectangle lengthwise in the middle and then make five slices the other way. You should have 10 small pieces of dough for each rectangle.

3. Take a mini hot dog and roll it in a piece of the dough. The dough stretches so don’t worry that it looks too small. It’s better if there isn’t too much dough anyway.

4. Place dogs on a cookie sheet and bake according to the directions on the package. You should check them and maybe cook a little longer till they get to the color you like. If you aren’t going to use them right away, cover with plastic wrap and store in fridge till later!

  2. I love pig-in-a-blanket. My mom and dad, who live with me and my family, make them about once a week for my kids. What fun to know that others still love them, too!
