Easy Pigs in a Blanket

These easy pigs in a blanket make a great snack for game day or anytime. Serve these easy pigs in a blanket with mustard, barbecue sauce or any of your favorite condiments.

Ingredients

1 tube crescent rolls
1 package cocktail franks

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Unroll the tube of crescent rolls; divide the rolls along the perforations into triangles. Use a sharp knife to cut each triangle into four pieces.
Roll one piece of dough around one cocktail frank, stretching the dough to cover as much frank as possible.
Arrange the crescent-covered franks on a parchment-lined baking sheet. They can be placed close together, but shouldn’t be touching.
Bake the pigs in a blanket in the oven for 10 minutes, until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
To serve:
Arrange the pigs in a blanket on a serving tray. You can serve them just like that, or include dipping sauce(s) for guests to dunk them into. Mustard, barbecue, ketchup, and relish are all good options. Choose one or offer a trio of dips.
Variations:
Want to make your pigs in a blanket a little more exciting? Here are two ways to do that:
Cheesy pigs: Before rolling the dogs in dough, sprinkle a little shredded cheese onto the crescent dough then continue with the preparation as directed.
Onion dogs: Spoon a little caramelized onion onto the dough before rolling up the dogs and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
Also, this recipe easily doubles or triples for crowds!

It's amazing how the wonton crisp come togther in such a short amount of time. Plus you can throw in anything and everything and you’ll end up with a fun little appetizer to feed a huge crowd



Ingredients:
1 lb. boneless, skinless thin-sliced chicken breasts
3 tbsp. olive oil, divided
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. chili powder
24 wonton wrappers
1 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
3 scallions, sliced

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, 2 tbsp. olive oil, paprika and chili powder.
Heat remaining 1 tbsp. olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Let rest for 5 minutes before shredding with a fork.
Fit a wonton wrapper into each of the 24 muffin tins, pressing carefully to make sure there is an opening in the center.
Place into oven and bake for 5 minutes, or until very lightly browned.
In a medium bowl, combine the shredded chicken, butter, and Frank’s Red Hot; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Keeping the wontons in the baking cups, fill each cup with 2 tbsp. chicken mixture. Sprinkle with blue cheese.
Place into oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese has softened and melted.
Serve immediately, topped with scallions.

Artichoke Spinach Dip

One of my all-time favorite slow cooker recipes is this chicken artichoke dip. It really is so delish. Lately I've been making it for parties and for pot-lucks. But I just leave out the chicken to make it a simple spinach artichoke dip. Yes the list of ingredients seems long, but it is worth it. Believe me, your guests will not be disappointed.

Makes 24 servings

1 (16 oz) bag frozen spinach, thawed
2 (14 oz) cans artichoke hearts, drained
1 (10 oz) jar Alfredo sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp paprika




1. Drain spinach. Dry with paper towels. Absorb as much liquid as possible.
2. Rinse artichokes and cut coarsely.
3. Combine all ingredients into slow cooker, except the Parmesan cheese and paprika.
4. Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours.
5. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and paprika. Serve with toasted French bread slices or chips.
