These little bundles are an all time football day favorite. A piece of your favorite sausage, wrapped around a blanket of dough actually now a vintage recipe. Meat and dough, hence the name pigs in a blanket.
1 package of your favorite cooked Italian sausage or suggestions, beef hogs,
kielbasa, bratwurst, cheddar hotdogs, smoked sausage.
1 pound of pizza dough, frozen or homemade or you can use refrigerator dough like crescent rolls
cut in half you will need two tubes for a package of hotdogs.
Mustard of choice, dijon, spicy or tomato Sauce and if you like,
Honey flavored or plain barbecue sauce.
Spices: cayenne pepper, parsley, garlic powder, black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Take a tablespoon of dough roll out to a 1/4 inch thick. Put a dab of your favorite sauce on the dough I usually use( hot mustard for hotdogs or tomato sauce for Italian sausage, or barbecue for cheddar brats).
Add a piece of the sausage that is cut about 1/2 inch thick, roll up. Sprinkle the top with grated cheese, garlic powder drizzle olive oil over the top a little black pepper and cayenne pepper and parsley. Place on a cookie sheet that has been greased, with side seam down. Bake at 400 degrees until brown.
Serve warm with more mustard of choice. So, easy and sure to please those fans!
