February 20, 2015: Easy Oscar Party Appetizer - Pigs in a Blanket

The Academy Awards are just around the corner.  That means people are gearing up for an Oscar party!
Here's an appetizer that's easy to make and requires only two ingredients, plus dipping sauces if you like.

Easy Pigs in a Blanket
1 - 8 oz can of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (e.g. Pillsbury)
1 - 13 oz package of mini-size smoked link sausages (e.g. Little Smokies)

The sausages are cooked so you're just cooking the crescent roll. 

My YouTube Video: Channel eat4f1 

1) Separate the crescent rolls into triangles (usually 8 per tube).  Cut each triangle into thirds.
2) Roll the dough around the sausage - starting at the wide end and working towards the narrow end.

3) Depending upon the website
Pillsbury recommends baking 375F for 12 to 15 minutes while Hilshire Farms recommends 400F for 9 to 10 minutes.  I tried both temperatures and both worked.

The key is to bake until golden brown which worked out to 375F for 13 minutes and 400 F for 11 minutes.

Finished results  - Golden brown top and bottom.

Can be eaten as is or with a dipping sauce, such as, ketchup, mustard, ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing.  No rules here.  It's a party!  Par-tay!
