Mini pigs in a blanket- oh my favorite party snack in the world. It’s easy, it’s well liked, and it’s tiny so people will eat more of it.
Rule #1 of party foods- the smaller they are, the more popular they’ll be.
Weird, but true. I guess that’s why I eat 15 triangles of chicken salad sandwiches when I’m at any Louisiana gathering. Don’t believe me? It’s happened.
I usually make anywhere from 45-150 piggies, but I’ll show you the smaller recipe and just double or triple as needed!
Take 2 butter crescent roll packages and slice each triangle into 3 smaller triangles with a pizza cutter (you can use a knife but it’s so much easier this way).
Empty two all beef cocktail sausage bags into a bowl and one by one roll up the weenies and place on a greased cookie sheet. Don’t overcrowd the pan, use two pans if necessary.
Brush egg wash (1 egg + 1 tbs water, whisked) on each piggy in their blankets and bake them at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Mine usually go for right around 20 minutes, but I watch them pretty closely after the 15 minute mark.
When you remove these, make sure to let them cool before packaging them up to transport because they may get soggy and no one likes a soggy piggy.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and watch them disappear!
