3 Little Pigs in a House: 2 Ways (& Only 3 Ingredients)


This is a fun variation on Pigs in a Blanket I came up with for Fairy Tale Day (Feb. 26!). I decided to shape the dough like a house because it fits better with the Fairy Tale.


On Pinterest, I saw some "Pigs in a Blanket," but the sign next to the appetizers at a Fairy-Tale themed party was crossed out and said "Wolves in a Blanket". Haha. :)


Anyways, I came up with 2 ways:

- One has 2 pigs in a house and the other I suppose is more accurate to the fairy tale and has only 1 pig in a house.


They are both easy and the ingredients are the same for both. :)



Ingredients:

- Pillsbury pie crust

- Lit'l Smokies

- Sargento Cheddar cheese slices (or other cheese you prefer that will melt in the oven)

** Slices seem easier in this recipe rather than shredded cheese as you will see, but you could put a little shredded cheese if you want -- especially if you want to change up the cheeses to represent the different types of houses: straw, sticks, and brick.




Steps/Instructions:


Variation 1: 2 Piggies in a House

1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


2.) From a piece of Pie Crust, carve out an arrow as shown in the picture with a triangle shape for a roof and a long rectangle for the house part. You will put 1 Lit'l smokie on each side of the rectangle and roll the edges of the rectangular part towards the center, so it has to be long enough to fit a Lit'l Smokie and roll it towards the center.

** The rectangle has to be about 3 times the length of the triangle; it is about 6" x 2" (short edge has to be length of Lit'l Smokie).



3.) Put 1 Lit'l Smokie on one edge and roll towards the center.

4.) Repeat for the other side of the rectangle.




5.) Put them in the oven for ~15 min.

6.) While they are in the oven, cut the slices of cheeses into little triangles, which will fit on the roof.

7.) Take out the tarts and put 1 piece of cheese on the roof; put back in the oven for 1 or 2 min. to melt the cheese.




Variation 2: 1 Piggy in a House


This one is slightly easier.

1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2.) From a pie crust, carve out a house shape.

3.) Put 1 Lit'L Smokie on the house part.

4.) Bake for ~15 min.

5.) While they are in the oven, cut the slices of cheeses into little triangles, which will fit on the roof.

6.) Take out the tarts and put 1 piece of cheese on the roof; put back in the oven for 1 or 2 min. to melt the cheese.


** This photo shows Step 7 in Variation 1 / Step 6 in Variation 2. I put the cheese slices on & then put them back in the oven for 1-2 min. to melt the cheese.



Pigs in a House plus cheese!


If you would like, you could change up the cheeses on different ones to represent: straw, sticks and brick. For example, you could use shredded Parmesan for straw, cheddar for sticks, Blue cheese or Roquefort for bricks (Blue cheese/Roquefort kind of looks like stone -- it's a stretch. There aren't a lot of cheeses that look like bricks or have maroon in them. Haha. :) I found 1 at the bottom of the post: Cahill Porter, but I didn't think it would look like that when it melted anyways.)


Anyways, give it a try! We are good at this!
