Food for Finals – Pigs in a Blanket

Dear Hungry Unionites,

It’s a bit warm outside to get too cozy in a blanket — but that’s not the case with this recipe.

Pigs in a Blanket may seem a little juvenile, as it’s something you probably ate as a kid. And to be honest, I had forgotten that I used to eat these growing up until my mom made them for my two nephews during Thanksgiving. With extra smoked sausages left over and a couple of tubes of crescent roles, I decided to make some more several days ago – and boy, were they good.

The recipe really isn’t a recipe – wrap individual smoked sausages in a single slice of crescent dough, and bake in the oven on the temperature suggested on the crescent package until the rolls are golden brown and crispy.

I ate them flaming hot from the oven. They smelled too good to wait to cool, and they were ridiculously easy and quick to make. Which, in my book, means they are another great snack as finals approach.

Happy eating,
