Andouille Pig in a Blanket – kick up ordinary pigs in a blanket with andouille sausage. Only 3 ingredients – andouille, mustard and crescent rolls.
I love a good pig in a blanket. I was brainstorming for Mardi Gras ideas and immediately thought of andouille pigs in a blanket. YUM! These are so easy to make and just as easy to eat. One quick tip to make these even easier to make is to use a pizza cutter to cut the crescent rolls. You can zip right through them.
Be warned, these pack a little kick from the andouille sausage. The heat in these pigs in a blanket will all depend on what brand andouille sausage you use. I used Savoie’s Hickory Smoked Andouille Sausage. I found it at Publix. We thought it tasted great. These were hard to stop eating!
