Pigs: These pigs are just simple hot dogs- whichever type you prefer. You can also use brats or sausage. Just make sure to cook your pigs in advance if your choice of meat requires it.
Blanket: The blankets are super easy to use crescent roll sheets. You’ll stuff this blanket with shredded cheese and top it with a honey mustard sauce sprinkled with Everything But the Bagel seasoning.
Dip: This simple dip is made with melted butter, honey mustard, and mayo. To finish, just add salt and pepper to taste.
HOW TO MAKE PIGS IN A BLANKET
STEP ONE: To start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grab a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Set it aside for now. Open the can of crescent roll sheets and unroll the dough. Next, cut each sheet into 4 even pieces along the short side. The dough should be a rectangle the length of which is slightly longer than a standard hot dog. Once the dough is prepped, sprinkle some of the shredded cheese along one long edge of each rectangle, leaving the opposite edge free.
STEP TWO: Place the hot dog on the dough and fold the top and bottom of the dough over the ends of the hot dog. Continue by rolling the dog in the crescent roll, sealing the seam, and placing it on the bottom of the prepared baking sheet.
STEP THREE: Once all of the pigs are wrapped in their blankets, combine the melted butter and honey mustard in a small mixing bowl. Use a pastry brush to brush the mixture on top of each with the mixture. Then sprinkle some Everything But the Bagel seasoning and some more shredded cheese on top to dress up these pigs in a blanket.
STEP FOUR: Bake these delicious dogs for 18-20 minutes or until the tops are a beautiful golden brown. While they are baking, mix up the dipping sauce by combining the melted butter, honey mustard, and mayo in a small bowl. Whisk the sauce until it is well combined and salt and pepper it to taste. Serve hot Everything But the Bagel Pigs in a Blanket with this delicious and creamy sauce!
TIPS FOR SUCCESS
- If you need to make smaller bites to feed more people you can easily cut the hot dogs into halves or quarters and slice the crescent roll dough to match. Smaller pigs in a blanket might not need the entire baking time the full sized version requires.
- I highly recommend using crescent roll sheets because they are so easy! You can also use refrigerated pizza dough, but it is slightly more work to roll it out and cut it into the necessary shape.
WHAT’S IN EVERYTHING BUT THE BAGEL SEASONING
This delicious and simple seasoning is a combination of black and white sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried onion and garlic, and sea salt. The seeds add a satisfying crunch and, when combined with the onion and garlic flavors, tastes exactly like an “everything bagel.”
WHAT GOES WITH PIGS IN A BLANKET
These Everything But the Bagel Pigs in a Blanket pair well with just about any appetizer you can think of. I like to serve them alongside Parmesan Puff Pasty Pinwheels, which are a great vegetarian option for your guests. I also think this updated classic goes perfect with other updated comfort foods- like Guacamole Deviled Eggs or BBQ Chicken Potato Skins.
