These Easy Pigs in a Blanket take just two ingredients and 20 minutes. Makes a great snack for kids or double the batch for your next party!
You may have noticed we eat a lot of Little Smokies in this house.
And of course, we love them wrapped in crescent rolls.
These Pigs in a Blanket are fun for the kids, a treat for adults, and just an all-around easy snack you can throw together fast.
The first time I attempted Pigs in a Blanket, I wrapped one Little Smokie in a full crescent roll. Bad idea.
The bread-to-smokie ratio was all off and it was hard to get the inside of the crescent cooked, too.
After experimenting with different amounts of crescent, I determined that cutting each crescent roll triangle into thirds was the best way to go.
The kiddos can help out too with an optional sprinkling of poppy seeds or sesame seeds.
You can halve or double the recipe depending on the crowd size. No doubt, these always go fast!
Easy Pigs in a Blanket Recipe
- 2 packages crescent rolls
- 1 (16 ounce) package Little Smokies
- poppy seeds for garnish, optional
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- Unwrap one tube of crescent rolls and separate into triangles. Working with one triangle at a time, cut it into 3 sections with a sharp knife.
- Roll up each section around a Little Smokie and place the prepared baking sheet, seam-side down. Sprinkle with poppy seeds if desired.
- Repeat with remaining crescent rolls and Little Smokies. Bake until the crescent rolls are golden brown and puffy, about 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.
