Nothing says appetizer quite like the traditional little sausages wrapped in dough. However, we've turned up the flavor with this updated version, Ultimate Pigs in a Blanket!
This is probably one of those recipes that everyone has probably made a dozen times in their life, and eaten twice as many. It's a super easy recipe that anybody can make, and served at most all social gatherings.
It's one of those recipes that you probably didn't think you could change too much about, besides the brand of dough or sausages you purchase.
However, I'm here to tell you that this old fashioned recipe is about to get a makeover with one simple ingredient that literally changes everything about these little guys.
These are loved by all kids and most adults alike, and what's great is you literally need two ingredients....crescent dough and little smokies. You just slice, wrap, roll up and bake.
However, with one simple addition, in a two ingredient step process, you are going to change these guys up forever.
The next time you need to bring something to a gathering, and you show up with these, they are going to be eaten WAY before their older version.
With a simple brushing on the tops with a beaten egg and, here it comes...... a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning....these have changed forever! Yep, everything bagel seasoning!
Did you guess it already? It's just one simple seasoning that you can buy these days almost anywhere. I got mine at Walmart one day. I was browsing the spices and seasonings, looking for something that wasn't this, and it caught my eye, whispered my name, and the rest was truly history.
New Years was coming up, and I had planned on making these pigs in a blanket, like I do every year, but this year was different. These were gone in seconds.
Btw, my choice brand for these is Kiolbassa. My reason is the ingredients, and no this is by no way sponsored. This choice is made because Kelsie is still allergic to corn syrup, and these guys don't have corn syrup in them.
Oh, and they have this flavor little sausages that I love for this...crandberry. Yep, y'all I love buying the cranberry flavor. I bought the flavor one time at Publix because they were out of the original, and I needed to make something with them.
The choice wasn't a bad one, because 9 times out of 10 now, I get the cranberry flavored ones. No, they aren't sweet!
