Homemade Pretzels made with Crescent Rolls

It’s championship weekend in college football, and these Pretzel Pigs in a Blanket will be on our tailgating menu!  These little piggies are my kryptonite. I can not control myself around them! I just keep popping them in my mouth. *oink* *oink* They are SOOOO good! You must try them ASAP!

These are SUPER simple to make. The pretzel dough is a can of refrigerated crescent rolls. Start with assembling the pigs in a blanket. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add baking soda. Using tongs or a strainer, dip each wrapped sausage into boiling water for a few seconds. Place dipped sausages on a baking sheet. Brush with an egg wash and bake.

What to Serve with Pretzel Pigs in a Blanket

The baking soda and water mixture is what gives them the pretzel texture. Such a quick and simple step to transform our usual pigs in a blanket into something amazing! We like to serve the pretzel bites with some extra dijon mustard. These bites taste great hot out of the oven or cooled to room temperature. Great for parties and tailgating!

These pretzel bites are a favorite at our house. They are a staple at all of our parties. Here are a few more of our favorite recipes from the blog to complete your party spread:
