Pigs in a Blanket

Appetizer Weiners

Pigs in a blanket! The perfect little appetizer weiners! There are lots of ways to make these. You can use hot dog weiners and biscuits or any combination of little smokies and crescent rolls.


  • little smokies (found in a package near the sausage, refrigerator section) or hot dogs
  • can(s) of crescent rolls or biscuits
  • Any kind of cheese, be creative, use whatever you have...cheddar, pepper jack, swiss, cream cheese, ANY


Make tiny slit in each of your little smokies weiners or hot dogs. Insert sliver of cheese. Roll it from wide side of crescent roll dough towards pointy end. For the ones I cooked shown above, I took canned biscuits, cut them in half, pressed them out a bit with my fingers, and rolled little smokies inside them. I served them with a side of hot barbecue sauce.

*Variation-cut slivers of jalapeno peppers and insert with cheese inside.

*Variation-sprinkle crescent dough with a little garlic powder for a garlic cheese version.

*Variation-wrap a 1/2 slice of bacon around the crescent roll for triple layered taste.

Cook in oven according to directions on crescent roll package.

Be creative. Open your pantry. Open your refrigerator. What can you put inside these tasty treats?
