Mini Pigs In A Blanket

Sunday, September 18, 2011

Mr. Schwartz's birthday went off without a hitch!  Well, of course there is always a few hiccups and things to learn when you entertain in a new space but overall I think it was a success!  Both of us are absolutely beat today.  

So, since I'm feeling pretty lazy, there is by far the easiest recipe from the party: Mini Pigs In A Blanket. So easy yet so fought after every time we make them.  Yes, I said we.  Mr. Schwartz and I have this down to a science.  He cuts the dough and I roll and press it on...repeat, repeat repeat.  Typically we make two packages of Lit'l Smokies but this time we made three.  I'm glad we did because they went just as fast as always.  

Here's the recipe.  And really, do we have to go to work tomorrow?! 

Hope you all had a great weekend!!! Thanks to all of our friends and family who made it to the party last night!  

Musical Selection: The Kids Don't Stand A Chance by: Vampire Weekend. Just cuz. 
Here is all you need: Seamless crescent rolls and Lit'l Smokies.  Mr. Schwartz loves the cheddar ones but it doesn't really matter.
Start by slicing the rolls lengthwise with a pizza cutter.  Look at those man hans ow owwww.  : )
For convience purposes, put the sausages into a bowl. We have done this so many times trying to wiggle them out of the package--not worth it. Dump them in a bowl.
Cut just enough dough to wrap around the sausage.  It is okay if there is a little more or a little less.
Then seal it up by pressing at the seem.
Line them up on a cookie sheet giving a little space between each one--they will puff slightly.  I never grease the cookie sheet either, there is far enough grease in these lil' guys.  Arn't they cute!?
Pop them in the oven for about 12-15 minutes at 375 or until they are golden brown.  I serve mine with ketchup, BBQ sauce and yellow mustard.  I should have taken more pictures but I was trying to be a good hostess. 

Make plenty of these because they will go fast!  Also, note that we used three packages of Lit'l Smokes and two rolls of crescent dough.

3 packages of Lit'l Smokes (Cheddar preferred)
2 rolls of seamless crescent rolls 

Preheat the oven to 375

Roll out the dough and cut 3/4 of an inch strips lengthwise with a pizza cutter.  

Measure how much dough it will take to roll around the sausage.  Cut the dough and seal the dough.  Place on a cookie sheet seal down.  

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.  

Serve with ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce.
