Wiener Wednesday: National Pigs in a Blanket Day

I love these food holidays. I really do. Especially when they commemorate something as tasty as the Pig in a Blanket. And on a Wiener Wednesday of all days! It’s kismet.

I am no stranger to the pig in a blanket. Here are a few of the refrigerated dough/weenie combos that have graced the pages (are they pages?) of Dinner is Served!:

Weenie Wreath

The wreath really is an artistic take on the pig in a blanket. And it’s so damn holly jolly I can’t stand it. But I guess you really could make this for any occasion–not just Christmas. Just change up the garnish.

Swiss Frank Roll-Ups


These took the basic dough/weenie combo and took it to the next level it with the addition of Swiss cheese, melted butter, and sesame seeds. Dee. Lish. Us.

Nic’s British Sausage Rolls

OK, not technically a pig in a blanket. But this recipe incorporates refrigerated dough with a meat stuffing. So it kinda counts. These really are the best of the bunch. If you haven’t given these a try yet–well, what are you waiting for? Make them now for someone you love. Before it gets too hot to even fathom turning on the oven.

Do you have any pig in a blanket variations that you love? You know that I’m always in the market for Wiener Wednesday ideas!
