Mini Pigs in a Blanket

This recipe needs no introduction. Its simple, its easy and its a crowd pleaser! This is a great appetizer to make for any get together. So if you like contributing yummy treats for gatherings but don’t have a lot of time to prep, chop, saute… then these little guys are for you!!

*Also these are so cute for a Halloween get-together. You can wrap the dough like a mummy, leaving some space to dot with mustard for eyes and your Mini Pigs in a Blanket become Mini Mummies in Wrappings 🙂

INGREDIENTS:

SERVINGS: Makes 32

1 pkg. Lit’l Smokies (flavor and style of choice)(I use regular and sometimes cheese filled smokies)

1 can of Crescent Rolls

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. un-roll the dough, pressing the perforated edges of two triangles together make a total of 4 rectangles. Then cut 8 lengthwise strips of dough from each rectangle. (Pizza cutter works great!) You should have roughly 32 strips when finished.
  3. Take a smoky and start rolling in one of the strips. Continue until all the dough is used.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown. p1

Serve with dipping sauces. I just do mustard, but ketchup, BBQ sauce, maybe even cheese, ranch. Sky’s the limit when it comes to dipping sauces for these guys.

Thats it!! It’s that simple and quick!!

Enjoy ❤
