Pigs In A Blanket
Is it really a party without them? Little wieners stuffed into a crispy shell of pastry with an irresistible dipping sauce? And they’re so easy to make. Thanks to the makers of crescent dough. And they’re so easy to eat. Perfect finger food. You don’t even need to balance a plate.
Dressed Up Pigs In A Blanket
Why not dress up those pigs in a blanket, put some lipstick on them and take them out on the town.
This recipe uses sliced andouille sausage and puff pastry instead of the obligatory Pillsbury crescent dough.
And instead of a dunk in mustard, this sausage in a blanket appetizer recipe doesn’t dunk at all, but right after they are baked, are glazed with a chutney and whole grain mustard combination. = DEE-licious.
We all love a good sweet and salty combination.
