Neely’s Pigs in a Blanket


  Pigs in a Blanket is not a new recipe but we have never made them.  This recipe perfect for my Little Chefs. Store bought crescent rolls were cut into thirds.  Little Chef A cut them in all different shapes and sizes trying her hardest to make thirds.

Each third were brushed with dijon mustard then rolled in a cocktail frank. Some were rolled tighter then others but none of them unrolled so we were good. We decided it would be easier to brush the dough right after rolling out before cutting.

Just before putting them in the oven they were brushed with an egg.

They came out golden brown looking great! This was one of those meals my Little Chefs ate quickly without complaints, even my youngest! We had intended on making the dipping sauce but we did not have any sour cream in the house. How is that possible?! That’s ok, ketchup and mustard worked as a great dipping sauce!

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!

    These look so delicious. I have made pigs in a blanket before which the kids gobbled down quickly, but these look more like adults would love them too
