Our traditional Christmas and Easter holiday meals include ham and stuffed cabbage. We've never called them pigs in a blanket.

This is the closest to pigs in the blanket that I knew growing up. It was a mixture of ground beef, rice, and spices rolled into cabbage and baked in the oven in a thin, somewhat watery tomato sauce. They were oval shaped and looked like many small pigs sleeping in the pan. It is great with mashed potatoes and any kind of bread (Italian or French loaf or rye rolls) and butter. It is a popular dish in Eastern Europe.

I did a lot of growing up in the UK. Pigs in a blanket are mini-sausages (perhaps cocktail weiners) in dense, bready dough and sometimes with bacon or liver pate. This is different to sausage rolls, which were done in puff pastry or in the US version, crescent roll dough. Sausage rolls are not the same as pigs in a blanket, UK-version.

I think Hedgehog Mom is the only one to get it right, from a UK-based (where they originated) perspective:

Cocktail sausages wrapped in bread dough.

When we were young and very broke, I made them from cut-up hot dogs and refrigerator biscuits, the kind you could buy for a quarter a tube.

To me it means sausages wrapped in pancakes. It's not a favorite, but that's what the term means to me. I'd rather have ham, hash browns and eggs over easy.

Interesting article - Pigs in blankets - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This^^. I've NEVER heard of cabbage rolls/stuffed cabbage referred to as pigs in blankets.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE 'EM!!!!

One of my favorite party platter treats!

Unfortunately, those little sausages are choc-full of fat and salt, and so they're very unhealthy. . But I do love them!!!
