How To Make Pigs In A Blanket With Mustard Whiskey Sauce
- Roll out crescent dough and cut into 3 triangles
- Place 1 mini sausage on each triangle dough and roll it up
Note – 2 containers of crescent rolls yield 48 skinny triangles. Most packages of cocktail franks have about 35 pieces. You have options! If you’re feeding a crowd, use 2 packages of cocktail franks and freeze any left over. Or only make 1 container of crescent rolls which will yield 24 pieces.
- Place rolled pigs on a parchment-lined baking sheet about 1 inch apart
- Brush melted butter or egg wash on each piece
- Sprinkle seasoning on pigs
Other seasonings you can use instead of Everything But The Bagel Seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Sesame seeds
Step 6 – Bake until golden brown
Step 7 – Whisk mustard, brown sugar, whiskey, and Worcestershire Sauce until completely blended
Step 8 – Serve with Mustard Whiskey Sauce
What If I Don’t Have Crescent Dough?
You can use buttery puff pastry, pizza dough, or pie crust, just be aware that the baking time may need to be adjusted.
Can I Use An Egg Wash Instead Of Melted Butter?
Yes you can. Slightly whisk one room temperature large egg in a small bowl.
What Brand Of Whiskey Can I Use?
My favorite is Jack Daniels but you can use your favorite whiskey or bourbon.
