While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Get your mini hotdogs in a row because April 24 is National Pigs in a Blanket Day!
Pigs in a blanket, that favorite party appetizer and the answer to "What can I bring?" everywhere, have become a simple American staple. A product of convenience cooking, these little pigs are as tasty as they are easy to make.
The "pigs" can be anything from hot dogs to Vienna sausages to link or cocktail sausages and the "blanket" is often biscuit or croissant dough. Kids love this treat that's easy on the palate because it's like a baked corn dog, and party-goers like it as an appetizer because it's a classic finger food. But if you're considering pigs in a blanket for breakfast, that usually means sausage links wrapped in pancakes.
So celebrate with your own variation, party or no party! If you want to jazz up the flavor with cheese but skip out on the questionable ingredients found in some hotdogs, try these cheesy pigs (or turkey dogs) in blankets. A little bit healthier and huge on flavor, this snack will give you a reason to celebrate.
