    Pigs in a blanket are a classic appetizer. Who knows when they made their first appearance, but for some reason I associate them with the 1950’s when anything bite-sized or toothpick friendly was deemed a sophsiticated and high fashion appetizer. These simple appetizers have standed the test, but needed a little pick-me-up, so I added cheese!

    Cheese makes everything better, don’t you agree? The lovely thing about Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket is that you can pick whatever type of cheese you want! The possibility are literally endless. Sharp cheddar makes for a classic cheesedog flavor, while a pepper jack makes this butter treat into a Mexican inspired dish. Swiss, Havarti, monterey jack, mozzarella, you be the judge!

Serve with homemade creamy honey mustard sauce!One thing I do warn against, because I’ve made this mistake, is using a quality crescent dough. I bought the cheap stuff and the amounts of vegetable oil in them didn’t react well with the cheese, making them look lumpy and ugly. Spring for the extra buck and get the food stuff. Also, place on the baking sheet seam side down. Adding a simple egg wash makes them shiny and pretty, while also allowing sesame seeds to easily adhere.

    Dipping sauces for your Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket are a matter of preference. I usually set mine out with ketchup and homemade creamy honey mustard, but you can also use a BBQ sauce or Creamy Italian Dressing.
