How to Make Sticky Pecan Pigs in a Blanket

This dish is super simple to make. Separate crescent rolls into triangles. Cut each roll into three triangles. Place a little smokie on each triangle and roll up. Place in a baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes. In a saucepan combine butter, honey, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cook until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Stir in chopped pecans. Pour the sauce over the crescent rolls and bake until golden brown.

  • You are going to need a total of 12 refrigerated crescent rolls.
  • It is easier to cut the crescent rolls into thirds using a pizza cutter.
  • I used a package of Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies Smoked Sausages.
