Everything Bagel Pigs in a Blanket are one of the most easy appetizers you could ever make! Mini smoked sausages are rolled up in crescent roll dough and sprinkled with everything bagel seasoning then baked until golden. Pick your dipping sauce and you are good to go!
Appetizers aren’t just for parties and they aren’t just for kids! They are a fun way to make movie nights special or make dinner on a night you don’t feel like cooking. I could easily make a meal out of these pigs in a blanket, Fried Ravioli and Shrimp Cocktail. Just add some cut up raw veggies and you’ve got a delicious finger foods meal!

The original Pigs in a Blanket is a wildly popular breakfast food made with sausages rolled up in pancakes. You can find them on the menu at just about any breakfast joint. This appetizer version uses little smokies sausages and crescent rolls.
I love appetizers like these because they are so easy to make and everyone loves them. You only need 2 ingredients, little smokies sausages and crescent roll dough. If you can’t find the smokies, you can use cut up hot dogs or a whole smoked sausage cut lengthwise into quarters, then 2-inch long chunks. Each of these options would have the same baking time as indicated in the recipe below.
The best appetizers are sometimes the most simple, and this recipe definitely fits in that category. Little smokies are savory, salty and go perfectly with the buttery flavor from the crescents. The everything bagel seasoning on top adds a burst of garlicky, onion flavor to boot. All you need is your favorite dip!

Absolutely! Roll the sausages in the crescent dough and place on a baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before baking. Put them in the oven straight out of the fridge.
