“Pigs in a blanket” refers to a popular finger food that consists of sausages or hot dogs wrapped in a dough and then baked.

The dough can be a variety of types, such as crescent rolls, pastry dough, or even pancake batter in some variations. They are commonly served as an appetizer, snack, or sometimes breakfast, often accompanied by condiments like mustard, ketchup, or cheese sauce for dipping.The concept is versatile and has many variations around the world. For example, in the United Kingdom, “pigs in blankets” typically refer to small sausages (or chipolatas) wrapped in bacon, served as a traditional accompaniment to roast turkey for Christmas dinner.

In contrast, the American version often involves a dough wrapping and is not specifically tied to holiday meals.
