A Twist On Family Favorite Recipe

I am always taking family favorite recipes and changing them, either out of necessity because I lack the ingredients and refuse the drive to the store, or just because it sounds like a good idea. When I was growing up I remember getting a special treat of pigs in a blanket, which were hotdogs wrapped in crescent rolls and baked. We ended up having a last minute poker game at our house and was left with very little time to get some snacks together so I ran to the store and got mini smokies (mini hot dogs), some plain and some with cheddar and a couple bottles of barbeque sauce. A poker favorite we have always make by smothering them in the barbeque sauce and throwing them in the slow cooker as we played. I always like to put out a variety of food but this time it was what I had time for, until I got the call that a few kiddos were tagging along. From my experience, the barbeque doused little smokies were not fun food for kiddos. So thinking very quickly I found some crescent rolls in the fridge and came up with a recipe that was kid friendly and the adults ate them right up too.

The name was created when one of the little girls watched what I was doing and said the pigs were rolling in mud – and so we started calling them Dirty Pigs in a Blanket.

Cheddar Smokies with Barbeque and Honey Wrapped in a Crescent Roll


(makes approximately 24)

  1. 8oz can of Crescent Rolls

  2. 24 Cheddar Little Smokies

  3. 4 Tablespoons Barbeque Sauce

  4. 2 Tablespoons Honey


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees

  2. Unroll the Crescent rolls and cut each one into 3 equal parts

  3. Lay the Crescent roll pieces flat on a lightly greased baking pan and put a thin layer of the barbeque sauce leaving about 1/8 inch border plain

  4. Follow this with 1 tablespoon of in the honey the same way – a thin layer on each crescent piece

  5. Lay (1) cheddar Smokie in each crescent piece and roll up leaving the ends of the smokie exposed.

  6. Pinch the end of the crescent roll so that it is closed around the smokie

  7. Lightly brush the remaining honey on the tops of the closed crescent rolls

  8. Bake for 14-17 minutes or until golden brown on the top

  9. Enjoy!
