Happy National Pigs in a Blanket Day!. I didn’t eat a lot of Pigs in a Blanket growing up, but I like the idea of them and should probably make them for my daughter. No doubt you have your own cherished family recipe for Pigs in a Blanket, but if not here’s the recipe.
First, you need to buy some “Lil’ Smokies”. You could use another brand, but Lil’ Smokies are the best. Along with Lil’ Smokies you’ll need to purchase some canned crescent dough.
To make Pigs in a Blanket, you unwrap the crescent dough and cut each of the perforated triangles into 3 triangles so that you have 24. For each Pig in a Blanket, you take one triangle of dough, wrap it in a little triangle. When all pigs are in the their blankets you bake them for about 12 minutes at 375F. Have fun!
Don’t you love all of these silly food holidays? Such a good excuse to eat treats 🙂
http://www.nationalsushisociety.com/ says that since 1997, November 1 is “Sushi Day”. I’m sorry I missed Corn Dog Day, which was March 21st. Since that’s our wedding anniversary and my husband doesn’t like hot dogs, I guess I could have celebrated at lunch. 😉
I’ll admit it: I love Pigs in a Blanket. I wish I had known that it was Pigs in a Blanket day. I would’ve had them for dinner 🙂
Wow, I did NOT know that! Anyone know when Sushi Day is? 🙂
Oh I’m too late! I saw it on Hungry Girl’s site this morning too that it was NPIB day! Now I’m hungry.
