To me, pigs in a blanket are either cocktail wienies or hot dog wienies wrapped in a bread/biscuit dough or Pillsbury-type crescent roll dough.

I haven't had homemade versions of either kind in years. I've been thinking of making both kinds lately.

I do especially love the ones they have at Auntie Anne's. Those are the only kind I've had lately. I make sure to buy one every time I go to the mall.


In my family we make something which we call "Mexican hot dogs" which might more appropriately be called Mexican pigs in a blanket. It is a hot dog wienie with a slit in the middle that is filled with a thin stick of cheese and rolled in a corn tortilla, secured with a toothpick, and deep fried. It is delicious.

I asked my mom once where we got this idea/recipe from and she said that there was a restaurant here in Albuquerque which made them and they called them "Sarape Dogs".

I like them. I usually serve them if i'm hosting a cocktail party. Easy to eat finger food is enjoyed by most.

I grew up in NE Ohio. I think of sausage links wrapped in pancakes.

That's what it means in my area. I've never even heard of sausages wrapped in pancakes before this thread.

Same here - 'hot dogs' in some kind of dough. I haven't had those since I was a kid. If someone served them to me, I wouldn't be opposed and would try them again; however, they are not on any of my menus in the foreseeable future.
