Ingredients

Pigs in a Blanket

  • 8 ounce refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 24 Cocktail smokies
  • egg wash
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese (See Tip 1)
  • Curly parsley for decoration

Cranberry Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

  • 14 ounce can jellied Cranberry sauce (See Tip 2)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup Dijon Mustard

Instructions

Pigs in a Blanket

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Trace a 10-inch circle on parchment paper. Place circle side down on baking sheet.
  • Separate crescent roll dough into 8 pieces. Cut each piece lengthwise into thirds. Brush each piece with about ¼ teaspoon of Dijon mustard. Place a Cocktail smokie on the thick end of each triangle and roll up. Arrange the pigs in a blanket seam side down, sided by side in the circle on prepared baking sheet making sure that they are touching. (See Tip 3)
  • Brush with egg wash; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes. Carefully transfer wreath to serving dish. (See Tip 4)
  • Place a small bowl in center of wreath; fill with Cranberry Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce. Place curly parsley around inside of wreath. Sprinkle minced parsley on dippig sauce.

Cranberry Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

  • Whisk together the cranberry sauce, honey and mustard until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use. (See Tip 5)
  • Serve with Pigs in a Blanket Wreath. Yield: 1 ¾ cups.

Notes

  1. You could also use sesame seeds or poppy seeds instead of the grated Parmesan cheese.
  2. Be sure to use the jellied Cranberry sauce.
  3. I used a pizza cutter to cut the crescent roll dough into thirds.
  4. Invariably, the wreath somewhat breaks apart when I transfer it to the serving dish. Not a problem - I just reform the circle!
  5. The Cranberry Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce can be served either warm or at room temperature.
