Aren’t you glad someone, somewhere, invented pigs in a blanket!?! And why do we only serve them at parties!?! Why not all the time, there doesn’t need to be a special reason. Sausage or a hot dog wrapped up in dough and baked until golden brown. Yum.
Now I don’t know about you but to me, the picture above is just wrong. I don’t order fish with their heads still in tact so why would I want a pig in a blanket looking at me? And cute ones at that! And these look a little more like a mummy in a blanket anyway.
Of course in the world today you can use any sort of bread. Pretzel bread, potato bread, pumpernickel bread…
If you are really into meat, you could do pig in a pig! To me this seems like a little over kill but what the heck, if you like it, go ahead!
Or you can get really, really fancy by thinly slicing that sausage or hot dog and wrapping it with cheese and then bread. How ever you choose to have it, enjoy it today, National Pigs In A Blanket Day.
How to celebrate – Fix some pigs in a blanket for lunch or dinner. Get fancy and add eggs to your pig in a blanket and make a breakfast meal! Come up with your own pigs in a blanekt recipe.
