National Pigs in a Blanket Day Date in the current year: April 24, 2022

National Pigs in a Blanket Day April 24 is National Pigs in a Blanket Day. You must have tried sausages wrapped in dough and baked in the oven to a golden crust. They are perfect appetizers for a party!

Pigs in a blanket was invented in the 1950s, when the first recipe of this appetizer was published in the Betty Crocker Cookbook. However, food historians also found another dish called pigs in blankets; its recipe was first published in 1930. It's interesting that the recipe used no sausages; the dish consisted of oysters wrapped in bacon. We think you can guess which of the recipes survived to this day.

Pigs in a blanket are usually made with hot dogs or cocktail frankfurters wrapped in croissant or biscuit dough. This is how they are made in the USA. However, there are different varieties of the dish. In the United Kingdom, for example, pigs in a blanket are little sausages wrapped in bacon. This dish is usually served for Christmas dinner. You can go further and wrap sausages in bacon and then with pastry dough and bake. This will make your pigs in a blanket look like real little pigs!
