Pigs in blanket are what you might think of as a very cliche appetizer to serve. I guess they're probably out of fashion now, lol, but I love them. Ever since I found this recipe, I can't stop making these to take to tailgates and parties. There's just something so delish and comforting about them. Plus, I love everything sesame, so these are that much better than the regular version.
- 1 (8-ounce) can original crescent dough
- 1/8 cup Dijon mustard
- 20 mini beef lit'l smokies or cocktail franks
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- Sesame seeds and/or poppy seeds
Preheat the oven to 350. Roll out the crescent dough and cut each triangle into three smaller triangles or strips. Brush a little bit of Dijon mustard on each of the pieces of dough. Add a lit'l smoky to each piece on one end and roll up.
Arrange them seam side down on a greased cookie sheet. Brush each with the beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm and enjoy!
