How to Make Pigs in a Blanket
These are my little guys favorite and most requested food. They are simple and quick to make when hunger strikes. The little smokies are one of the few things I buy at the bulk food store (unless I can find on sale) Pigs in a blanket are wrapped in crescent dough and cooked to a nice crunch.
These make a great snack and are perfect for taking to parties or having as an appetizer. We event use them as an after school snack to curb hunger before dinner. And yes, sometimes they even become dinner.
These are perfect to make in the toaster oven if you have one in the summer to keep your house chill. And since my son likes them so much, he’s learned how to cook them for himself.
Easy Pigs In a Blanket
- oven/toaster oven
- package of little smokies
- package of crescent rolls
- Preheat oven 350.
- Roll out the crescent rolls and then press the divided sections together.
- Cut into stripes. (you'll want to cut them so they are shorter, rather than longer or you'll have to much to wrap around the smokey)
- Take the stripe and wrap it around the smokies and place them on a cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes.
- Note I used a toaster oven on this batch at 350 and they burned quicker than they cooked, so keep an eye on them so they only get golden brown or turn down the heat in the toaster oven to 300 or 325F.
- You can buy the crescent rolls in a full sheet and cut, versus buying the triangles.
- Buy your favorite flavor of crescent rolls.
