Twisty Pigs in a Blanket

These Twisty Pigs in a Blanket are easy for kids to help make and are great for after school snacks, parties, get-togethers or just anytime!

I love cooking with my kids. It is so fun to teach them to create their own snacks and meals. My 5-year-old asked for Pigs in a Blanket so we decided to make them with a "twist" ;). These were really easy to make and they turned out so good! If you are looking for a quick and easy recipe that takes a traditional meal and makes it fun and different, then this is perfect! These are great for parties, appetizers, after school snacks, lunch, dinner, and everything in between.

To make these you only need a few ingredients; hot dogs, cheese and thawed Rhodes rolls. You can have these made and on the table in about 20 minutes (not including thaw time). It takes about 5-10 minutes to prep and put everything together and about 10-14 minutes to cook them.

First, you will take the Rhodes Rolls (thawed) and cut them into thirds. Then you will take two bun length hot dogs and cut them in half lengthwise. Now cut them lengthwise again. You should have four long pieces. Put these into a bunch and cut them in half (so you have 8 long skinny pieces). Next, you will slice the cheese. Take a brick (we used a 2 lb one) and cut 4-5 slices. Now take these slices and cut them into about 5 pieces each (so you have about 20 pieces of cheese).

Once you have these ready, you will start making your Twisty Pigs in a Blanket. Take one of the pieces of dough and roll in between your hands (like you are making a snake) until you have a piece that is about 6-8" long.

Put a piece of cheese with a piece of hot dog together and wrap the dough around it in a twist pattern.Pinch the ends together so they don't come loose.

Place them all on a baking sheet, slightly spaced. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-14 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned. While the Twisty pigs in a blanket are cooking, you will make the dipping sauce.

To make the dipping sauce you will mix 3/4 cup of Mayo, 1/2 - 3/4 cup of Ketchup and 1 tbsp of Mustard together and stir (whisk) until blended.

Put a couple of spoonfuls into the jar (cup or bowl) and then put the cooked Twisty Pigs in a Blank "head first". This is a great way to serve them, especially to kids.

My older kids loved coming home to this delicious treat and MaKenzie had so much fun helping me make them. It was a great way to spend time together and teach her something new. Let us know what you think!
