Pigs in a blanket

Let's just be honest with each other for a minute, is there really anything better than your basic, yummy, delicious, pig-in-a-blanket?  The answer, if you are wondering, is most definitely NO!  They fall in the same category as the egg-in-a-hole.  These simple delights are sheer genius and to the originator of these heavenly finger foods, I salute you!  As it turns out I have never actually made pigs-in-a-blanket before though I have, on many occasions, eaten my fair share.  This weekend when my sister-in-law, Maggie, said she was going to throw some together I thought it most certainly needed to be included on my blog, so here it is my friends, a treat of the senses, an hoer's d'oeuvre topped by none, the one, the only, the pig-in-a-blanket (are you getting the dramatic affect yet?) 

Just Your Basic Delicious Pig-In-A-Blanket

The list of ingredients is pretty complicated so pay attention....you are going to need two containers of crescent rolls, 1 package Lit'l Smokies and a jar of mustard (if you are feeling frisky).
 
First, lay out the crescent rolls and cut each triangle into 3 separate triangles....


...Next, pull apart each individual triangle...At this point some people spread a little mustard (or Durkey's if you are feeling fancy) on the crescent rolls before rolling up the smokie but that is totally a matter of time and personal preference, just know it is an option!
...Then roll up a smokie in each triangle...

As you can see this is incredibly difficult and requires the utmost attention!

Next, lay each pig-in-a-blanket seam-side down on a cookie sheet lined in aluminum foil.
Make sure to give them enough room to stretch out as you don't want to overcrowd your piggies!
 

Bake in a 350 degree for 10-12 minutes (this also depends on the oven so I strongly suggest keeping an eye on them so that they do not burn)
As I mentioned before, pure genius!
Serve with ketchup and mustard and enjoy, heaven knows your guests will!
Pin It!
