What you need for this Pigs in a Blanket recipe
Sausages: I use plant based sausage and these make a wonderful meaty and hearty texture. You can use hot dogs or something spicy. Anything what you like is great.
Crescent dough: this really comes in handy. I don’t need to make my own dough. It comes from a tube and I have it ready whenever I want. If you can’t find it, most supermarket have it, use puff pastry or even biscuit dough.
Dairy free butter: Instead of egg wash, I use dairy free butter and let me tell you something this is so delicious. It really makes everything great and the buttery flavors for what crescent dough is known really shines through the result. Alternatively you can use oat or any milk you like, but the result will be less buttery.
How to make Pigs in a Blanket
Preheat oven to 390F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Unroll crescent dough, take it out of the package and cut into triangles.
Roll the dough around the sausage and wrap them. How many you will make, depends on their size. I make bigger ones so I get about eight out of this. Place everything on your prepared baking sheet.
Brush melted butter on top and finish with a good pinch salt.
Bake pigs in a blanket for around 15 minutes.
Tips and tricks
These Pigs in a Blanket are delicious even cold and great for around 4 days.
To reheat: preheat oven to 360F and bake them for 4 minutes. Another option is the microwave, but know that will affect the texture a bit, yet still enjoyable.
What to serve with pigs in the blanket
As you know, I like to keep it really easy: mustard, ketchup, BBQ sauce or Ranch Dip.
To make ahead: Wrap pigs in the blanket in crescent dough, put them in a container and store in the fridge. I would do the butter topping just before baking. Otherwise the butter will harden up.
