This recipe is a slight variation on the Pillsbury classic Piglets in a Blanket, using little smoked sausages instead of the usual little hot dogs.. It was one of our New Year’s Eve munchies. I decided to post it now because of all the games coming up and with the weather so cold right now in most of the country and the world (the UK is now in a deep freeze too)…more people are staying in and finding activities like family game nights a better alternative to going out in the cold.
These are so easy to make… I used a can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. The official Pillsbury recipe that makes Piglets in a Blanket tells you to cut each Crescent roll triangle into three…. Frankly I found it cumbersome … so I unrolled the dough into a long rectangle and cut strips (cut them along the long side so the strips aren’t that long). Then just place the little sausage at one end and roll the dough strip around it… it’s as simple as that.
You can roll these ahead and just pop them into the oven when you’re ready….
It’s a great little snack … serve with mustard and I promise you they will be a hit.
