Everyone knows what these little babies are, no matter where you are from pigs in a blanket have their place. Usually found during cocktail hours for celebrations or the fun easy pass around appetizer everyone pulls out of the freezer, thank you, Cohen's. The kids gobble them up, but so do the gourmands. They are a true crowd pleaser.
In Israel they have ketchup inside them and call them Moshe Ba'Teiva (Moshe in the Ark), this was confirmed via a poll on facebook and many like to serve it on Parshat Shemot. In England they traditionally wrap bacon around the dogs in place of a dough and here is our version using beef fry or pastrami, created for the Superbowl, Pigskin Puppies.
Here most of us like it wrapped in puff pastry and served with mustard. I do believe these mini hot dogs are the precursors to the classic deli roll. What do you think, am I right? Anyways, in honor of National Pigs in a Blanket day, go ahead and make the classic Pigs in a Blanket for dinner tonight just add a salad or even consider trying them with veggie dogs. For a nice change on the original try Mini Hot Dog Egg Rolls or swap out the dogs for asparagus and make Fried Asparagus Rolls.
Another choice is this Idaho Potato wrapped dog...
Or last, but not least, change it up with watermelon for a sweet delight -
Make sure to let us know how you celebrated.
