FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What kind of Lit’l Smokies are best?

Lit’t Smokies (made by Hillshire Farms) sells several different flavors. I used the original version for this, but feel free to use what you like best or even a store brand.

What dipping sauce is best?

You can use your favorite dipping sauce. Some of our favorites include: ketchup, mustard, dijon mustard, honey mustard, ranch, and BBQ sauce.

Does the glaze make these soggy?

No! The glaze is only brushed on and this creates a nice texture to the top without making it soggy or heavy.

Can I use different seasonings in the glaze?

If you are not a fan of the seasonings that I use then you can use a seasoning blend like bbq seasoning, blackening seasoning, creole seasoning and maybe even lemon pepper seasoning.

Can I double this recipe?

I highly suggest you double this recipe! These are so good that they really don’t last long and people devour them without realizing how many they’ve eaten! Just place the second batch on another tray and bake after the first one is done.

Can pigs in a blanket be made in a 9×13-inch dish?

Yes, you can place them in a single layer in a 9×13-inch baking dish (that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.) If you don’t have a pastry brush, just slowly and evenly pour the glaze over the top of all the crescent rolls. Bake for about the same amount of time.

How do I store leftovers?

These can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator where they will keep for up to 5 days. They can also be frozen. Place in a freezer bag or container and they will keep for up to 3 months. To defrost, remove from the freezer and place in the refrigerator until thawed. You can reheat in the oven covered in foil until heated through.
