Today is National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day.
During my childhood, my sister and I got to help in the kitchen and wrap the cocktail weiners or vienna sausages. We had the technique perfected. Place the hot dog at the end of one corner of the crescent triangle and roll it up. Repeat. I’m still amazed at the talent we displayed at such a young age.
We made two versions: piggies and figgies. My daughter made the piggies and I was in charge of the fig version. We made a healthier version of the piggies by using turkey dogs, turkey bacon and low-fat crescent rolls. We pre-cooked the turkey bacon to give it a crisper texture.
Finger foods are just as much today as they were during my childhood.
