Ingredients for Pigs in a Blanket

Talk about a simple recipe! To make Pigs in a Blanket, you will only need a few basic ingredients. To make this recipe make sure to pick up the following:

  • refrigerated biscuits– the grand sized biscuits will wrap a lot better around a full hot dog
  • hot dogs– we like to just use the regular, all beef hot dogs for this recipe, but a delicious variation would be to use a brat or even sausage.
  • cheddar cheese– medium or sharp cheddar will add extra flavor, but feel free to make this your own recipe by adding your favorite cheese flavors
  • butter– for brushing over the tops of the wrapped hot dogs
  • sesame seeds– because we are fancy!!

How to Make Pigs in a Blanket

To make this simple pigs in a blanket recipe, start by opening that terrifying can of biscuits!! Who else hates it when that thing pops open? It’s like a jump scare!!

Take the biscuits out of the can, and roll them out flat into an oval shape just larger that the hot dogs.

Using a sharp knife, slice the hot dogs in half down the center, not slicing all the way through the hot hog.

Place a piece of cheese the same length as the hot dog in the center.

Wrap the stuffed hot dogs in the biscuit dough and place onto a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.

Brush the biscuit dough with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake the hot dogs wrapped in biscuits until they are golden brown on the outside and the cheese has melted on the inside. This will take about 11-13 minutes.
