Here’s how to make your own pigs in a blanket

Just about every year during the holiday season, my sister ends up preparing at least one meal. My sister’s cooking abilities are God-given, if you ask me, and I have yet to consume anything she has made that fails to be anything but truly delicious.

I genuinely mean that.

One of the many tremendous dishes she usually serves during the holiday season is pigs in a blanket, which, for anyone unfamiliar with this phenomenal creation, consists of hot dogs or sausages softly enclosed in a warm, fluffy croissant. They’re fucking great, and I thought it might be somewhat fun if I were to share a recipe to prepare some homemade ones yourself. This recipe comes from


  • 1 (8-oz.) tube crescent rolls
  • 1 12-oz. package mini cocktail weiners
  • 4 tbsp. melted butter
  • Coarse salt, for sprinkling


  1. Step 1: Preheat oven to 375º. On a lightly floured surface, unroll crescent sheets and tear where perforated. Cut each triangle into 3 smaller triangles.
  2. Step 2: Place one cocktail weiner on thick side of each triangle then gently roll to thinner side.
  3. Step 3: Transfer to a medium baking sheet, brush with melted butter, and a sprinkle with coarse salt.
  4. Step 4: Bake until golden, 12 to 15 minutes,” the recipe states.

Granted, if you wanted to get real fancy, you could prepare crescent dough from scratch and even prepare your own sausage if you desire, but personally, I’m happy to buy the pre-prepared ingredients to make my life easier.

As for dipping sauces, the possibilities are nearly endless. Some of my favourites include ketchup, mustard, garlic dip or this ‘secret sauce’ I get from No Frills (I think it’s by Compliments brand??), but they’re also pretty tasty on their own. I’m a sauce person, I guess, and now that I’m thinking on it, I’d say a cheese sauce or even a nice sweet and tangy barbeque sauce would be scrumptious.

I think you’re getting my point about dipping sauces.
