Pigs in a blanket (aka mini crescent dogs) are always a favorite appetizer or snack when there is a group of people getting together. This is what I like bringing whenever I know there are a bunch of kids coming. It has happened that the adults have eaten all of these before the kids get to them!!
What are Pigs in a Blanket?
They are a really easy snack/appetizer made with little hot dogs (I buy Lil Smokies) wrapped in Crescent Roll dough. These mini crescent dogs are very popular with kids because they are an easy snack to grab and most kids love hot dogs!
package of Lil Smokies (small hot dogs)
tube of Crescent Rolls
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Faherneight
Dry the lil Smokies with a paper towel. They tend to be in some liquid in the package.
Unroll the Crescent Roll dough
Cut long triangles
Wrap the little weiners, starting with the wide side of the triangle.
Repeat ... many times!
Using your non-stick liner (Silpat or similar) is a good idea for these!
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, watching carefully for when they are nicely browned.
Can you double the recipe?
Yes! And you should. I usually do. And, I never bring any back home. Normally I serve them in a big warm glass bowl. But lately, I've put them on a tray so it's easier for people to grab a couple without touching the others. You can also put toothpicks in each so people can serve themselves that way. Makes them look more fancy too!
A little tip. When you bring these to a gathering, be kind to the host and bring some ketchup and mustard too! Some kiddos really like their condiments with these. Other kids just like to grab a couple and are munching on them as they join their friends.
