Simple and Easy Pigs in a Blanket

Easy Pigs N Blankets

I know, I know you’re thinking that this is one of the easiest snacks to make. I agree! As my first food blog posting though what better thing to post than something easy.

Simple and Easy Pigs in a Blanket (PIAB) are just that… simple. There are a few tips and tricks that I have listed below to help ensure that your little sausage friends come out perfectly golden brown and yummy.

Things You Will Need:

  • Baking Sheet (I use nonstick dark)
  • Silicone Baking Mat (I never bake without it!)
  • Parring Knife
  • Small bowl
  • Little Smokies (Your choice, I use Hillshire Farm Beef Little Smokies)
  • 2 Crescent Rolls Packages (I use Publix low fat crescents)


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees or whatever is recommended on your crescent rolls packaging. Pop open the dough container and detach the individual triangle pieces. Cut in halves using your parring knife. Open your little smokies and pour into a bowl to let all of the juice settle to the bottom.  Roll individual piggies into your halved crescent rolls and press the ends to make a good seal. Spread out 1.5 to 2 inches on your baking mat. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 and check once your timer ends. If they aren’t quite golden brown, bake for an additional 3 minutes. Your piggies should be bubbly and golden. Remove from oven and from baking mat immediately. (Did you notice how easily that your PIAB just slid right off your silicone baking mat!?) Serve with your favorite dipping sauces. My husband loves honey mustard! (Homemade of course.)

Things To Try Next Time:

  • Add shredded cheese to each PIAB
  • Instead of using little smokies try using shredded or string mozzarella and pepperoni (marina for dipping)
  • Instead of using little smokies you can use ham and swiss cheese to pair with a warm soup
