mini-pigs-in-a-blanket-2With Thanksgiving one week away, I know most of you are trying to figure out your meal plan for the big day. I’ve got a simple appetizer that will keep your guests satisfied while you are preparing the feast. My family always serves these little morsels out of a Crock-Pot to keep them warm during the party. And if you don’t finish them all, which is highly unlikely, they are equally delicious left over!

First you need to open 1 (8 oz.) package of crescent rolls and separate a square of two rolls. Then smooth out the triangular perforations.

Now cut the square into 8 strips. Repeat this process with all of the dough from the crescent roll tube.

There is about 32 little smokies in a package and one crescent roll tube should make 32 strips of dough. So now place the 32 wrapped smokies onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake them in a 375 degree oven for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown.
