Pigs In A Blanket
I simply could not turn down the chance to make these, it has bacon after all. How can it not be good.
I have made my share of the U.S. version, which is sausages wrapped in some sort of dough like biscuit dough or croissant dough. I’ve even had them with hot dogs instead of sausages, but never just the sausage wrapped in bacon and baked to a crispy perfection. These were sinfully good. It was very hard not to eat the whole tray.
Pigs in a blanket are traditionally served as a side with a Christmas turkey dinner. These are great also with a roasted chicken or even as an appetizer for New Year’s.
Here’s how you make them…..just in time for Christmas lunch or dinner:
*8 to 12 slices of bacon
*preheat the oven to 400°
Spray a baking sheet with no stick spray or line with parchment paper; set aside.
Cut each slice of bacon in half.
Place one of the sausages on one end of the bacon slice.
Wrap the bacon around the sausage.
Place on the baking sheet seam side down.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until the bacon is as crispy as you prefer.
*Note* These can be made ahead of time. Just place on the baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Remove the plastic wrap when ready to bake.
