Looking for an easy appetizer for the (big and little) football fans in your life? Look no further, because these “Piggies in a Blanket” always get a touchdown! I’m so serious when I say -there are NEVER any of these left! lol! Serve with ketchup, mustard, and/ or BBQ sauce…and most of all, a side of fun!


Open crescent rolls and press edges together to make a full rectangle.


Slice with a pizza cutter into smaller squares like so..


Place a piggie in the center of each rectangle and bring up the opposite sides, twist and pinch together. Place on a prepared baking sheet and bake in a 375 oven for 12-15 mins until golden brown.


Dig in!

  1. I didn’t realize how easy and quick this looks to make. I can’t wait to try them myself. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I would absolutely love to make these for the little ones but have no idea what ‘Crescent Rolls’ are (in cans?!) – never heard of this here in South Africa. Maybe I could just use Puff Pastry?
    Thank you for your awesome fb site.
