Pigs in a Blanket - I can't eat just one! The secret ingredient makes all the difference!

I think pigs in a blanket are the perfect tailgating snack.  They are bite sized and everyone loves them!.  Especially me!!  These are always the first thing to go at our tailgates.

This recipe for pigs in a blanket it a little different from other recipes I've seen.  It has Dijon mustard baked inside the rolls.  I really think it makes a difference.  Plus, it eliminates the need to have a dipping sauce.  Here is a kitchen tip - I use a pizza cutter to cut the crescent rolls; makes cutting so much easier.

These pigs in a blanket are a real crowd pleaser.  Serve them at your next gathering for an easy and delicious treat!

  9. I love the addition of Dijon mustard! The last time I made these I used Conecuh sausage that I already had in the freezer and just cut them the length of little smokies. They were a hit!
