Pigs in a Blanket aren’t just for kids, they make great little appetizers for adults, too! Learn how to make Pigs in a Blanket with just 2 ingredients! They’re super easy to prepare, and taste great!

Growing up my pigs-in-a-blanket experiences have been pretty limited. My Mom made these same pigs in a blanket for years.

It wasn’t until I got a little older that this is just the classic recipe. You can change it to your liking and spruce it up as much as you want.

Change the inside of the pigs in a blanket

I know that it is called pigs in a blanket for a reason, but sometimes I just don’t like the hot dog part! Here are some other options that you can put inside of your “blanket.”

  • Little smokies
  • Sausages
  • Chorizo
  • Bacon
  • Fried Chicken
  • Ham

Just be sure that whatever you put in the middle that it is fully cooked, or will cook all the way through when cooked with the “blanket” on.

Can I change other things in pigs in the blanket?

This is where it can get fun. You can add things from cheese to pepperonis. I even saw a recipe for Ruben Pigs in the Blanket (You can find it here.)

Growing up my Mom would use what she had on hand to make this fun classic treat. She would sometimes use crescent rolls, frozen dough or even pretzel dough if we had any left over.

There are SO many ways you can change up this recipe. But sometimes you just need the good old classic Pigs in a Blanket.

How to make Pigs in a blanket

Biscuit roll pigs in a blanket could not be easier to make! Just 2 ingredients and everyone absolutely loves these.

  • Open biscuit rolls and slice the roll into 1″ slices.
  • Unroll each slice and wrap around your small hot dog.
  • Place seam side down on a baking sheet at bake them.
    If I have them, I love to use mini cocktail smokies that have cheese in them if you can find them.  If not, I sometimes add a tiny bit of grated or processed cheese inside when I’m wrapping the dough.
