Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket / Pigs in a Blanket Day


Pigs in a Blanket are a fav appetizer around here! This version only has 3 ingredients, but it's really tasty!


These were inspired by #PigsinaBlanketDay

Here's a link to what I made last year.

What I used:

- Nathan's Hot Dogs (cut lengthwise and then into 4 pieces; 8 pieces per hot dog)

- Kraft American Cheese (1/4 or 1/6 of a slice per appetizer)

- Pillsbury Crescent dough (1/2 piece for each blanket)


Note: I have also tried it with pizza dough. It works well too; just a different texture. Both are tasty!











Hot Dog

For a little more flavor, after I cut the hot dog in half lengthwise, I browned it in a little oil in a nonstick pan. Then I cut each half into 4 pieces for 8 pieces per hot dog.


Crescent Dough

When you roll out the Crescent Dough, there are performation for each crescent. To make these mini-pigs in a blanket, I cut each of these pieces in half.


American Cheese

I folded 1 slice of cheese in half and then into 1/3 for 6 small pieces of cheese or I folded it into 4 pieces. Then I took each 1/4 or 1/6 piece slice and folded it in half again (if needed to fit into the 1/2 piece of crescent.


To assemble each appetizer, I put a small piece of cheese and a piece of hot dog and wrapped it together.






Then I baked it at 400 degrees for ~15 min. or so. until the dough was baked. You don't have to worry really because the hot dog is already cooked.


Ta da! Cheesy! Yummy Pigs in a Blanket!


Give it a try! We are good at this!
