Beef/ Side Dishes

Classic Pigs in a Blanket

It’s Super Bowl Sunday and I wanted to put out some great snacks for game day. I don’t recall going to a Super Bowl party that DIDN’T have pigs in a blanket, so I’m keeping up the tradition.

There are only a few ingredients for this dish – lil smokies, crescent roll dough, and… that’s it! OK, if you want to dip them in something, ketchup, mustard, and a few other ingredients.

Whenever there are so few ingredients, I try to use the best I can find. Lil smokies aren’t exactly gourmet food, but there are the beef and pork or all beef. I chose all beef.

For assembly, open the crescent roll tube and separate the triangles. Cut each one into thirds and use those pieces to wrap the lil smokies.

Put them on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

For the dipping sauces, I put out ketchup and a mustard sauce. The mustard sauce is one part sour cream and one part mustard. I did a half yellow mustard and half grainy mustard mix – it was pretty fantastic.

I hope you’ll make these the next time you need a side dish for your party.
