EXPERT TIPS FOR BEST PIGS IN THE BLANKET RECIPE

  • BEST SUBSTITUTE FOR COCKTAIL WIENERS: Use regular thin hot dogs. Depending on the length, cut into 3-4 pieces.
  • BEST SUBSTITUTE FOR CRESCENT ROLLS: Use this easy homemade biscuit dough: BAKING POWDER BISCUITS
  • BEST SUBSTITUTES FOR POPPY SEEDS: Try white or black sesame seeds, or a sprinkling of flaky salt.
  • HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE MORE FESTIVE: For football party food, skip the poppy seeds! After the mini pigs in a blanket come out of the oven, make them into pigskins in a blanket! Use yellow mustard from a squeeze bottle. Create football laces on the top of each with squeezed-on mustard: one line crosswise and 3 lengthwise!
  • HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE MORE SAVORY: Before baking, brush each piece with melted butter. When assembling these mini crescent dogs, include a little slice of cheddar cheese along with the wiener.
  • WHAT TO SERVE WITH PIGS IN A BLANKET: Serve them with ketchup, mustard, ranch dressing, hot sauce, or bang bang sauce.
  • MAKE CLEAN-UP EASIER: Line the baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • MAKE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS: Assemble pigs in the blanket. Place them on a baking tray, but do not bake. Wrap tray with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Remove plastic and bake.
  • CAN PIGS IN THE BLANKET BE FROZEN? Yes! After they’re baked, allow them to cool for 10-12 minutes. Place the pieces in a single layer within a gallon-sized freezer bag, leaving a bit of space between each. Lay the bag flat in the freezer. Frozen crescent dogs can be frozen for up to 3 weeks. To reheat, transfer the pieces to a baking tray. Tent it with foil. Bake at 325°F for 14-15 minutes, or until heated through.
