Why Make (Grown Up) Pigs in a Blanket?

Aren’t party appetizers just the best? Little finger foods, mini versions of your favorite sandwiches, meatballs simmering away in a crockpot, and dips. Give me allll the dips, I love filling my plate with a little bit of everything and enjoying a variety of different flavors,

No matter the reason for the party, if there is a tray of Pigs in a Blanket, it is usually the first appetizer to get completely eaten up. Something about a simple mini hotdog baked into a soft, butter puff pastry and dipped in ketchup or mustard (or both!), is just sensational.

If I am hosting a party with kids in attendance, I usually have a big ol’ tray of pigs in a blanket, but if I have only adults coming, I like to to serve this “grown up” version.

What are (Grown Up) Pigs in a Blanket?

In place of the standard hotdog, use Lit’l Smokies Smoked Sausage. These sausages have a nice blend of seasoning and a rich, smoky flavor that really kicks this appetizer up a notch.

I still bake the sausages in buttery crescent rolls, but I use and egg wash on the tops of them and top them with a sprinkle of Everything Bagel Seasoning before baking.

I serve them in a platter with a spicy and creamy Siracha Mayo dipping sauce.

Its just appetizer perfection for a grown up palate.

But don’t feel like you need to wait for a party to make these lil guys. Sometimes I will make them for dinner and pair them with a side salad or a cup of soup. Sort of a fresh twist on a soup n sandwich.

What Is Everything Bagel Seasoning?

Typically called “Everything Bagel Seasoning” or “Everything Seasoning”, it’s a blend of sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion, poppy seeds, and salt.

Everything Bagel Seasoning blend is a great way to add a salty and savory flavor to foods that are more bland on their own.

Of course its famous for being baked into bagels or crusty bread, but here are a few other was you can use it:

  • as a rub to season chicken or steak before grilling
  • to jazz up hummus or a mashed avocado
  • toss with nuts, trail mix or even popcorn
  • whip it with butter or cream cheese to create a seasoned spread to serve with French bread or warm rolls

What Ingredients Do You Need for (Grown Up) Pigs In a Blanket with Siracha Mayo?

  • Lit’l Smokies Sausages (I like these)
  • refrigerated crescent rolls
  • egg
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning (like this one or this one)

How To Make Them

Open the can of refrigerated crescent rolls and lay them out of a flat surface. Using a pizza cutter, slice each tringle the long way down the center to create two, thinner triangles. This will give you 16 dough triangles.

Take a lit’l smokie sausage and place it at the skinny end of the triangle, and roll it up into the dough. Do this with all 16 of the dough triangles.

I like to line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This is an optional step, but it will help prevent the bottoms of the crescent rolls form scorching, and it makes clean up easier!

Crack the egg in small bowl and stir to combine the yolk and the white. Using a pastry brush or a spoon, brush a little egg wash onto the top of each sausage roll. This will help the seasoning stick to the dough.

Shake the desired amount of Everything Bagel Seasoning onto the top of each egg washed roll. I typically measure approx 1/2T of the seasoning into a small bowl and use my fingers to evenly sprinkle it onto the 16 rolls.

Bake at 375 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Keep a close eye on them as the bottoms of the rolls can burn easily.

While they bake, make the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, combine 1/2c of mayonnaise and 3-6 t of Siracha sauce depending on how spicy you like it (I typically do 4t). Stir until completely combined.

Serve pigs in a blanket on a large plate with dipping sauce.
