Piglets in a Blanket

Piglets in a Blanket

These super easy and delicious Piglets in a Blanket are a staple in my house appetizers or hors d’oeuvre, especially during parties.

Well, I must say that piglets in a blanket are one of my kids’ favorites quick after-school snacks. However, over the years I have brought these to school for holiday parties.

Furthermore, I send them to my husband’s work, I served them during birthday parties, and Superbowl as well.

With that being said, since we have Superbowl gathering tomorrow I thought to finally post them on my blog. Perhaps some of you might make them as well.

I mean, it does not take a rocket scientist, but I am here to give an idea. Personally, I think they are just amazing bites.

Anyhow, I think I posted them a long time ago, but pictures were somewhat catastrophic, so I am updating the whole post and a recipe.

To be honest, I really like using better quality wieners, and I love boar’s head products.

It’s not a secret, I have been using Boar’s Head for a couple of years now. I know they are a bit more expensive but you can’t deny the quality of their products. Additionally, the taste is absolutely amazing.

Piglets in a Blanket


Yield: Party Food
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

These delicious appetizers are a staple in my house during parties for many, many years. One of the kids' favorites quick snacks.


  • 2 cans Croissants Rolls/8 rolls each (or more)
  • 24 fully cooked cocktail wieners I used boars head cocktail beef frankfurters and large frankfurters
  • 1 tbsp. Unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp. Dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • Sesame seeds *Optional


  1. Boil 2 cups of water in a larger pot and drop wieners in for about 3-4 minutes. It takes away a lot of packed sodium and it tastes much better. This step is not necessary but I think it tastes so much better.
  2. Heat oven to 375°F and Grease baking pan.
  3. For smaller cocktail wieners or frankfurters, cut each triangle in half, lengthwise. Place 1 wiener on the shortest side of each triangle; roll up to an opposite point. Place, point side down, on greased cookie sheet.
  4. For larger franks, cut each triangle into 3 smaller triangles and as you see on my picture roll from one end to the other using all three cuts out pieces on one frank since it is triple the size compared to the cocktail wiener.
  5. This is not necessary as well, but it tastes so amazing: Melt unsalted butter, then ADD dried parsley and garlic powder. Brush it over each roll and you can add some sesame seeds if you have any. I had only black sesame seeds and that is what I have used.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  7. Serve them with mustard, ketchup or any condiment that you desire.


You may use any brand of wieners and any brand of Croissants, Rolls.

What is "ass dried parsley"? I'm not sure that is something I would add to my food!

Yes, you can't really add it, so I change it to "add". Jokes on the side, it was a typo. Thanks for letting me know!
