Pigs in a blanket are a classic, much-loved appetizer, perfect for any party. But why not give these tasty little bread-wrapped piggies a delicious modern spin? With Bacon-Cheddar Pigs in a Blanket you can!
But let’s face it for a second … most pigs in a blanket appetizers are the same – bready outside wrapping up a mini hot dog. They are loved because they are so predictable. But sometimes predictable isn’t a good thing.
Enter Bacon-Cheddar Pigs in a Blanket. These aren’t you mama’s piggies.
You start with Crescent rolls, as many pigs in a blanket recipes do. But instead of simply wrapping the mini dogs, you sprinkle some sharp cheddar cheese and some salty bacon inside too.
Then, the dogs are wrapped up. Now, this is important. The best way to wrap them is to wrap either end in towards the center of the dog. Then, you roll it up and seal any cracks as you go. Basically, these piggies are totally hidden in their Crescent blanket.
Bake ‘em a bit, and you have this amazing hot appetizer that will have your guests raving over your fabulous pigs in a blanket.
