Today we celebrate those who are graduating. From high school, college, heck even my niece who just graduated from daycare and is headed to Kindergarten this Fall (another WOW moment). She wanted to learn how to make Pigs in a Blanket with Cheese so of course I obliged.
Everyone has a reason to celebrate, and these CHEESY PIGS IN A BLANKET with PARMESAN RANCH BUTTER are the perfect snack to bring to the parties. You won’t even need to bring a gift if you bake some of these!
Pigs in a Blanket are great, but this Pigs in a Blanket Recipe with CHEESE and Ranch Parmesan Butter are AMAZING!
This Summer I’m having so much fun creating some cheesy recipes with my favorite creamy brand, Borden® Cheese! You might remember my Crab Artichoke Bread Bowls or Cheesy Baked Breakfast Sliders, two other favorites perfect for a crowd. I can’t get enough of their Natural Sharp Cheddar Slices and they were just perfect in these Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket. Just the right amount of creamy zip to bring to the party. YUM!
Why do you call them Pigs in a Blanket?
A Pigs in a Blanket Recipe is traditionally little smokies, hot dogs, Vienna sausages, or or breakfast sausages wrapped in some sort of pastry, such as crescent dough, biscuit dough, or pancake mix. This recipe has been a party and potluck favorite for generations, I’ve just updated it a bit by adding cheese and smothering them in ranch parmesan butter. Amazing, right?
I used to be so nervous about big get togethers such as graduation parties when potluck food was involved. WHAT WOULD I BRING! This food journey has been so fun but most of all it has shown me there are so many simple and delicious recipes out there that anyone can make (and EVERYONE will love). These Cheesy Lil’ Smokies are a perfect example. These are too easy not to try! (And that parmesan ranch butter…OMG)
