Pigs in a blanket are a classic finger food perfect for any party or gathering. Wrapped in crescent roll dough and baked to perfection, they’re a crowd-pleaser that everyone will love.
‣ 8 ounces crescent roll dough ‣ 24 Lit’l Smokies, or similar type of pre-cooked sausages or hot dogs ‣ 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted ‣ 3/4 teaspoon dried minced onion ‣ 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard ‣ 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds ‣ 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds ‣ 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce ‣ 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
To begin, unroll the crescent roll dough and cut each triangle into 3 long triangles.
Pat the Lit’l Smokies dry with paper towels, then wrap each one in a strip of crescent roll. Once done, place the wrapped sausages on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spacing each one about one or two inches apart.
In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, dried onion, dijon mustard, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder until smooth.
Use a pastry brush to generously coat the outside dough of each wrapped Lit’l Smokie. Be sure to use all of the sauce! And once done, send them off to bake!
