Pigs in a Blanket

Pigs in a Blanket are a classic appetizer or snack made with hot dogs or cocktail sausages wrapped in a crescent roll or puff pastry and baked until golden brown. They are often served at parties, gatherings, or as a fun treat for kids.

To make Pigs in a Blanket, you would start by preheating your oven and preparing a baking sheet with parchment paper. Next, you would roll out the crescent roll dough or puff pastry and cut it into strips.

Pigs in a Blanket can be served with ketchup, mustard, or other dipping sauces for added flavor. They are a simple and delicious snack that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at any gathering.

Total Time45 minutes



  • 2 8 ounce cans crescent rolls
  • 48 cocktail wieners
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • toppings such as sesame seeds or poppy seeds optional
  • cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons chopped parsley optional


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Line two sheet pans with foil and coat with cooking spray.

Unroll the cans of crescent roll dough and separate the dough into 16 triangles.

Cut each dough triangle into thirds, lengthwise.

Place a wiener at the thickest end of the triangle. Start at that end and roll up each wiener.

Repeat with remaining dough and wieners. Place the pigs in a blanket on the baking sheets.

Brush the butter over the tops of the pigs and add any toppings if desired.

Bake each tray for 13-15 minutes or until dough is golden brown. Serve immediately, garnished with chopped parsley if desired.


You can use any type of miniature sausage for this recipe – I’ve done it with hot dogs, little smokies and chicken apple sausages, all with great results.

Can’t find mini hot dogs? You can also use larger hot dogs that are cut into 4 or 5 pieces. 💁
