National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day
Pigs-in-a-blanket are so simple to make – they almost don’t require a recipe! I made mine pretty basic, but they can always be modified by adding cheese or different kinds of sausages. Here is the basic premise around pigs-in-a-blanket:
1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (I used low-fat)
1/2 package Lit’l Smokies Cocktail Links (or other small, fully cooked sausage)
- If you are using Lit’l Smokies or other small sausage, roll out the crescent roll dough and cut each triangle in half. If you are using a sausage with a larger girth, do not cut the triangles in half. Place 1 sausage at the widest end of the dough and roll up.
- Place the pigs-in-a-blanket on a greased baking sheet. Cook in 375 degree oven for 11 minutes or until golden brown and sausages are heated through.
- Let cool slightly before serving. Serve with ketchup or experiment with other sauces that compliment the sausage you used.
