Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket

Last week I asked my friend what I could bring for her Super Bowl party this past weekend, and she suggested pigs in a blanket. Then it hit me that I had never made them myself before, and actually had to google how to make them. I decided to add some cheese to the recipe by stuffing the lil' piggies with some cheddar cheese before rolling them in the dough and baking.


2 tubes of reduced fat crescent rolls
1 package of turkey lil' smokies
Reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
Mustard for dipping


Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Pop and unroll both cans of dough, and cut each triangle into 3 narrow triangles

Slice the lil' smokies just enough to stuff with some cheddar cheese before rolling each lil' smokey in a narrow triangle of dough.

Bake at 375 for 12 minutes, rotating the cookie sheets in the oven half way through at the 6 minute mark.

*Ready for the oven*

*Ready to enjoy*

*Perfect golden brown*

  4. No joke I used to live on these in college. So good.

  5. I don't know why I had never thought of stuffing these with cheese before... duh! I always make pigs in a blanket or I'll do crescent rolls with pepperoni mozzarella cheese but never cheesy pigs in a blanket. Why does football season have to be over?!?

  8. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE! I love the cheese!!!!

  10. Can I please have all of these right now!! Pigs in a blanket are my favorite thing EVER! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  11. ok i already love pigs in a blanket and now cheese too? sign me up :)

  12. Omg this looks amazing. We make pigs in a blanket with crescent rolls all the time for parties, but I never thought of adding cheese before - yum!

  13. I love pigs in a blanket!! For a dinner recipe, use a sheet of puff pastry and a regular sized hot dog (I prefer to use andouille sausage). One puff pastry sheet is just enough for two people to have 1-2 hot dogs, and the andouille can be sealed up and used again for another meal. It's just as tasty and is much easier when you're only cooking for a few people.

  14. YUM! I want to be eating these right now!

  15. Oh man, I love pigs in a blanket! I've never tried them with cheese though, that sounds amazing!

  16. These look better than the store bought ones (which are really pricey) and perfect for the super bowl!!

  17. I love these!!! I used to eat these so much when I was younger! Yours look great :)
