The term "pigs in a blanket" was first used in the 1930s in the United States, referring to hot dogs or sausages wrapped in biscuit or pancake dough and baked. However, similar dishes have been around for much longer in different parts of the world. For example, in the United Kingdom, pigs in a blanket are small sausages wrapped in bacon and roasted, usually served as a Christmas dinner accompaniment. In Germany, "sausages in a dressing gown" are sausages wrapped in puff pastry or shortcrust pastry and baked or fried. In Russia, "sausages in dough" are sausages or frankfurters wrapped in yeast dough and baked. In Finland, "hidden sausage" are sausages wrapped in mashed potato and cheese and baked.

Today I'm going to share with you America's version of pigs in a blanket. These are super easy and delicious snacks that you can make in no time. They are perfect for parties, picnics, or just a cozy night in. Here's what you need:

- 1 package of crescent roll dough

- 1 package of mini hot dogs or cocktail sausages

- Some mustard, ketchup, or your favorite dipping sauce

First, preheat your oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, unroll the crescent dough and separate it into triangles. Cut each triangle into three smaller triangles. Next, place a mini hot dog on the wide end of each triangle and roll it up. Place the wrapped hot dogs on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden and puffy. Serve with your choice of sauce and enjoy!
