It’s the simple things… pigs in a blanket are so much fun to make and are a classic! These bite-sized appetizers come together quickly and easily using refrigerated crescent rolls and cocktail sausages. They’ve always been a staple on game day and during holiday gatherings.
Raise your hand if you grew up on these, too! Pigs in a blanket bring me back to my childhood and there are so many variations on how to make them. I probably had them as an after-school snack at least a few times a month! I like to brush my crescent rolls with spicy mustard before rolling them up and baking. And then there’s ketchup. I LOVE dipping pigs in a blanket in lots and lots of ketchup!
Each crescent roll will need to be sliced in half vertically into 2 small triangles. I’ve also made these with hot dogs that I cut into 3 even pieces.
This no-fuss, bite-sized appetizer is always a crowd-pleaser!
