Mini Pigs in a Blanket

This easy and tasty recipe for pigs in a blanket is a game day favorite.

I know Yall are laughing at me, aren’t you? I know what you are thinking, Pigs in the blanket?

Really Veronica, you did a post on pigs in the blanket? Well these are not exactly pigs in the blanket.

These puppies dont have hot dogs in the middle. They have little smokies in them.

They are delectable and addictive. Every time I serve these they are the first to get gobbled up.

Along with the meatballs with grape jelly.  Keep laughing my friend, because once you try one of these,

you will be laughing no more.

Sometimes the easiest things are totally fabulous! The family loves these during game day and parties!

Want to see how I made them? It is so easy and good! Your whole family will love these

    Fun snack! And one that I can make with veggie hot dogs :D. Oh, and I like the black poppy seeds!

    I love pigs in a blanket…and I made some almost exactly like these a couple of weeks ago…only I use puff pastry instead of crescent roll dough. I love smokies in them! yummy. (I’ll be posting mine one of these days…)
