Easy Appetizer and Breakfast Recipe

I think pigs in a blanket are the perfect tailgating and party snack.  They are bite-sized and everyone loves them!.  Especially me!! I have ZERO self-control around these things. I could eat the whole batch and not bat an eyelash. These are always the first thing to go at our tailgates and parties. I also whip up a batch of these for holiday breakfasts. These with some Cream Cheese Sausage Balls and Mimosas are perfection!

How to Make Homemade Pigs in a Blanket

This recipe for pigs in a blanket is a little different from other recipes I’ve seen. It has Dijon mustard baked inside the rolls. I really think it makes a difference!

To make the little pigs, start with separating the crescent roll dough into triangles. Cut each triangle into 3 triangles. Spread the mustard over the crescent rolls and top with a lit’l smokie. Roll up and place on a baking sheet. Pop them in the oven and enjoy!

  • I use a pizza cutter to cut crescent rolls into three triangles.
  • Can use regular or low-fat crescent rolls.
  • Can Pigs in a Blanket be made in advance? Sure. You can assemble the pigs in a blanket and refrigerate them for a few hours before baking. This appetizer is good hot out of the oven or cooled to room temperature. I think these taste best the day they are baked.
  • If you are transporting these to a party, look at getting an insulated carrier. I like this one from Pyrex: (affiliate link) https://amzn.to/3kk5ggs
  • How many pigs in a blanket per person? This recipe makes 4 dozen pigs in a blanket. I estimate each person will eat about 4 pieces depending on what else you serve. I would say that is enough for 10 to 12 people.

  1. 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!

  2. I made these for the Cotton Bowl Friday night (Gig 'em Aggies!) and my boys loved them! They've both requested them for their lunch boxes this week.
