These cuties are delicious, and they're such a perfect little appetizer for a game night or lunch for your children! Easy is the word when it comes to piggies in a blanket, and they're fun to eat, too! Here's the dilly ....
I use the Hillshire Farm turkey sausages so they don't have as much fat as the regular ones. I love the hot & sweet mustard that I rub in the cresent before adding the sausage. It adds just the right flavor. There is a yummy looking dipping sauce with this recipe that I need to make the next time. My kiddos are easy, so when I make them for lunch I simply serve it with fresh grape tomatoes and pretzels or the like, but feel free to "jazz" them up however your family wants!
I know this is not a new concept, but here is the yummy recipe I've been using to make these piggies in a blanket for my own sweet, little Piggies! ;)
Piggies in a Blanket
adapted from The Neely's
1 8 oz. can of refrigerated crescent rolls
3 Tbsp. hot & sweet mustard (or Dijon)
21 (about 1/2 pkg.) mini turkey sausages "lil smokies"
Dipping Sauce ingredients:
1/2 c. Sour cream
1/2 c. Mayo
3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. Whole grain mustard
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lay out the crescent roll dough triangles, and using a pizza cutter make three strips lengthwise in them all. Using a pastry brush or back of spoon, spread on the mustard. Lay down the mini sausage on the wider end and roll up like you would any crescent roll. Place on a cookie sheet.
In a small bowl, crack the egg and whisk with a little bit of water. Brush the egg wash on the top of each roll. Sprinkle with poppy seeds or sesame seeds.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until puffy and golden brown.
Stir together dipping sauce ingredients for a dip, or eat them as is... Delicious!!! They can also be made ahead and fridge rated for tomorrow's lunchbox:)
