My husband and I host a monthly games night that sees anywhere from 15 to 25 plus ourselves. Then there are the special games nights or all day events like Superbowl, the weekly Sunday gatherings, along with family and friends. Essentially, we have one or two things going on at our house weekly that involve entertaining. That means over the course of a one month period, I make a lot of appetizers and finger food!
I modified the recipe to use Schneiders 100% Juicy Jumbos (wieners). These wieners contain no fillers, no by-products and no MSG. These wieners are longer than the regular sized wieners. I open the tube of refrigerator dough but instead of breaking into the crescent triangles, I just separate it into two rectangles (4 triangles each). Then I place one jumbo wiener at the short end of a rectangle and roll it up. I bake as per instructions on the tube, 400°F until golden brown as pictured.
Cut this way, the yield is usually 12 per tube of refrigerator dough instead of 8 wrapped traditional style. I think making pigs in a blanket this way is a lot easier and they look just as yummy plus I don't have to buy those smaller wieners. They may look a bit unconventional but the guys love them!
