New Years Eve Throw-down! Appetizer II: “Pigs in a Blanket”
Who even came up with the “pigs in a blanket” name? Either way, New Years is never NYE without these guys present at the appetizer table. I feel like people never say no to them also, and so that’s why they’re always a hit for parties, large or small.
Franks in blankets are basically small cocktail franks rolled up in crescent roll dough from the container. I cannot express how simple this recipe is, that I won’t be including a recipe at the bottom *GASP*
The reason I chose to make these on my own is because I have honestly always wanted to see if I can make them just as good as the store-bought kind. Survey says, YES!
Alright, here’s the breakdown of ingredients:
- One 8oz can of crescent rolls
- One package cocktail franks
- Melted butter
- Coarse sea salt
To make these babies is totally simple:
- Open canister of crescent rolls and pull apart at the perforated seams.
- Sprinkle some flour on a clean surface and lay out the crescent roll dough
- Cut the dough into smaller portions
- Take a cocktail frank and start at the thinner end of one of the crescent rolls and roll from one end to the other, pinching at the end. Repeat
- Spray a nonstick pan with olive or coconut oil, layer the piggies on the pan, spread the melted butter on top, then sprinkle with salt.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes at 375* (adjust heat as needed).
These will easily become a staple at any event, in fact, I’m planning these for a Superbowl party along with another showstopper: spinach dip! Nomaste 🙂
