In my opinion, there is nothing superior to grilling outside in warm weather and cooking up some All-American hot dogs! What could make this even better? Bite-sized hot dogs wrapped in biscuits – AKA Pigs in a Blanket! As I researched a few fun facts on Pigs in a Blanket Day I discovered that this is not only an American tradition, for Countries around the world celebrate this savory snack in their own way. Let’s take a look at how other countries create Pigs in a Blanket:
- United Kingdom – “Pigs in Blankets” refer to small sausages wrapped in bacon. Yes, bacon! Traditionally, they are served with Christmas dinner or roast turkey.
- Germany – The traditional version will wrap the sausages in puff pastry or pancakes. You will most likely find cheese or bacon added to the German-style Pigs in a Blanket.
- Israel – A common practice in Israel is to roll the hot dog in a ketchup-covered sheet of dough, or puff pastry, and bake. Yum!
- The Netherlands – Among the Dutch, this cuisine is commonly pork-sausage wrapped in puff pastry. They are often served or eaten as a breakfast food, on special occasions, or at festivals.
Kick start Spring by celebrating Pigs in a Blanket day and grabbing for those delectable, bite-sized snacks!
