Pigs In A Blanket Ingredients
- Crescent Rolls
- Cocktail wieners - or 6 hot dogs cut into quarters
- Butter - melted butter
- Garlic powder
Using cocktail wieners is the simplest way to make Pigs in a Blanket, but you can also substitute regular hot dogs. If you are using regular-sized hot dogs you’ll just want to cut them into quarters before wrapping them in the crescent roll dough.
It’s easy to add cheese to your classic Pigs in a Blanket for some extra flavor. To add cheese cut a small slit in the cocktail wiener lengthwise and add some cheese before wrapping with the crescent dough. You could use cheddar, mozzarella, provolone, or any flavor of cheese that’s your favorite.
Switch things up and make breakfast-themed Pigs in a Blanket by substituting cooked breakfast sausage links in place of the cocktail wieners. You could also add some crispy bacon to your pigs in a blanket by wrapping the wieners with a small piece of uncooked bacon, and then baking as directed.
