Pigs in a Blanket

Course Side Dish
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 package of refrigerated crescent roll dough 8-count
  • 16 cocktail sausages or mini hot dogs
  • 1 egg beaten, for egg wash
  • Optional: sesame seeds or poppy seeds for sprinkling


  1. Preheat your oven to the temperature indicated on the crescent roll dough package.
  2. Open the package of crescent roll dough and separate the individual triangles. You should have 8 triangles in total.
  3. Take one cocktail sausage or mini hot dog and place it at the wide end of a crescent roll triangle.
  4. Roll the dough around the sausage, starting from the wide end and rolling towards the pointed end. The sausage should be fully wrapped in the dough.
  5. Repeat the process with the remaining sausages and crescent roll triangles until you have made all your pigs in a blanket.
  6. Optional: For a golden finish, you can brush the tops of the pigs in a blanket with beaten egg using a pastry brush. This will give them a nice shine and color when baked.
  7. If you want extra texture and flavor, sprinkle sesame or poppy seeds over the pigs in a blanket before baking.
  8. Place the pigs in a blanket on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  9. Bake the pigs in a preheated oven according to the crescent roll dough package instructions or until they turn golden brown. This usually takes around 12-15 minutes.
  10. Once they are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
  11. You can serve the pigs in a blanket with ketchup, mustard, or your favorite dipping sauce.

Enjoy your homemade pigs in a blanket as a delicious side dish or appetizer for any occasion! They’re perfect for parties, game nights, or simply as a tasty snack.
