Table of Contents
- Crescent rolls – for this recipe, you’ll need two cans

- Everything bagel seasoning – McCormick makes this as does Trader Joe’s
What is Everything Bagel Seasoning?
Have you ever had an everything bagel? It’s the seasoning used to give them a salty, savory flavor. It’s a mix of ingredients, including poppy seeds, sesame seeds, dried garlic, and onion, plus some salt.
The great news is that you can buy everything bagel seasoning in the spice aisle at many grocery stores. It’s not just for bagels – you can sprinkle it over all kinds of things, including these pigs in a blanket.
It’s optional, but you should try it! It gives them a ton of flavor and a great textured coating. It also dresses them up, so they’re not so plain looking.
How to Make Pigs in a Blanket
1. Prepare the dough: Remove the crescent roll dough from the cans and unroll them. Separate them into 16 triangles and then slice each triangle into three small triangles.
2. Assemble: Place a sausage on each triangle and roll them up. Place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
3. Add seasoning: Brush each pig in a blanket with some egg white and sprinkle the seasoning over the top.
4. Bake: Bake them at 375°F for 12 to 15 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown and cooked through. Serve them warm with ketchup for dipping.
If you want to make these for a party and get a head start, you can prep them 24 hours in advance.
Prep them as instructed, and once you get them on the baking sheet, cover it and keep them in the refrigerator.
Let them come to room temperature before baking them.
How to Reheat Leftover Pigs in a Blanket
If you have leftovers, they will keep for up to three days in the fridge. You can warm them up in the microwave or pop them in your air fryer! Make these for all the parties, game-days, holidays, or anytime you want a savory snack! The everything seasoning really makes them unique, so definitely give it a try. Whenever I make them, they disappear quickly – I’m sure they will at your house, too!
