It’s football season! All that excitement works up an appetite so of course football finger foods are in order. One of my guy’s favorites, Pigs in a Blanket.
Yeah, football season is here! We are ready for it. Saturday mornings spent cheering on the kids at rocket football. Afternoons cheering on your favorite college team.
Football season is a biggie here in the bottom left of the mitten. Saturday mornings are usually spent at the football field. My son is on the rocket football team and my husband is the coach. Then the boys come home and watch football.
Now, I will admit that I really don’t watch football outside of my son’s games. I have no allegiance to any team but I am here 100% for the snacks. Is that bad? No, I don’t think so. I mean look at these!! Now on to the pigs in a blanket!
This is a recipe you want when you don’t want to buy a lot of ingredients or have a messy kitchen. Do you have time to buy 3 ingredients, cut them up and then bake for 18 minutes? And after such minimum effort, you have a delicious appetizer that will make every football fan raving? Then these pigs in a blanket are for you.
How to make Easy Pigs in a Blanket:
Take the can of biscuits and open them up. Cut each one into 4 pieces. This will make 32 biscuit pieces.
Now take the beef sausages and cut them into 3 pieces each. This will make 30 pieces of sausage.
Take the cheese and fold then cut into 8 pieces each to make 32 pieces. See, the math doesn’t quite add up and you will be short 2 pieces of sausages. I usually just cut 2 pieces in half, no one will notice when they are scarfing these down.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Now it’s time to start assembling the pigs in a blanket. Pick up a piece of biscuit and flatten a little bit. Add the cheese then the sausage. Bring the ends over the sausage and pinch. (You will see that some of my pigs didn’t get completely covered. I’ve surmised that no matter how hard I pinch it’s almost inevitable that some will open during cooking.)
Place them on a baking sheet with either tin foil that greased or parchment paper. Once all are assembled and the oven is heated place in the oven and cook for 18 minutes.
Once they are golden brown pile them on to a big plate and serve to your hungry fans.
And here you are…..
From our home in the Bottom Left of the Mitten to yours ~ Enjoy!
