As a child Pigs In A Blanket was one of those meals every one loved. My brother and I loved it because of the gooey cheese and the flaky crescent rolls. It happily fulfilled our unhealthy cheese obsession. My mom loved it because it took so little time to make. Win-Win. Today I still get the occasional craving. They remind me of summer time and camping. If you want to make the original recipe you can find it here, but I've updated it to make it a little more adult friendly.
You will need: 8 pre-cooked sausages of your choosing (I used Aidells' roasted garlic and gruyere cheese chicken sausages which you can find at Target), 4 slices of Muenster cheese (or any other cheese you feel will compliment your sausages best), and 1 package of original Pillsbury crescent rolls.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Take your cheese slices and cut them in half, creating 8 pieces. Lay out the crescent rolls on a cookie sheet and pull them into the perforated triangles. Wrap a piece of cheese around each sausage and then wrap each sausage in a crescent roll triangle. Place equidistantly apart on the cookie sheet. Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes (or until crescent rolls have risen and are golden brown). Serve while warm.
The higher quality sausage and cheese make these a little more sophisticated than the original recipe. They are delicious and so easy, great for a quick meal on a week night. It took me about 5 minutes to prepare everything, for a total of 15 minutes including prep-work and cook time. Since sausage and crescents are not particularly healthy, I paired my Pigs In A Blanket with raspberries, carrots, and vegetable dip. Bon appétit!
