Little Pig, Little Pig Wrapped in a Blanket

I am always on the search for an appetizer, on the weekends, as a family, we are busy and a quick app is good to fill tummies without the work of a full meal. I especially love any kind of app that I can make, and freeze. I often will make several batches of something at a time, so that I can stick ready to go items in freezer bags and heat then serve when time is short.

Of course as a busy mom, I might have been known to bake off a couple apps, throw some raw veggies on the table and call it a meal. Maybe.

I watch food shows and one of the things I’ve heard a lot is that Pigs in a Blanket are still a pretty popular appetizer. I typically make them with hot dogs, and cut them into pieces, but I had an idea one day shopping to use these cute Lil’ Smokies and give it a go. They even come in cheese flavored if that sounds like a must. A little pig wrapped in a blanket.

Two ingredients are needed.

Cresent Rolls and Lil’ Smokies.

The first thing I do is get my dough out of the roll, then I pull one of the double sections apart. It will be the dough for 2 rolls. But I take my fingers and press that seam back together.

Now that I have a single rectangle again, I take a knife, and cut down the center to divide the dough into two pieces horizontally. I then cut a line down the center of the dough vertically, and each half of that line, cut again. Giving me 8 pieces.

I take a single piece of dough, and wrap that around my lil’smokie. I place them slightly apart on a parchment covered baking sheet.

When wrapping the single pieces, make sure to place your seam side down.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. I keep a sharp eye out because these tend to burn quickly on the bottoms, so once they are just brown, I pull them out.

Serve with ketchup or a BBQ sauce, and enjoy!
