A great holiday recipe is something everyone should know how to make. Something you can bring to potlucks and parties at Christmas time. Something to make quickly and know it will knock their socks off at that NYE or Superbowl get together. I love these PEPPER JELLY HOGS IN A BLANKET because they’re a twist on a classic (You already know I love Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket) but is still unique enough to be requested time and time again.

I love the sweetness of the sausage, the tang from the grainy mustard,  and the just right spice of the pepper jelly. I love that they’re delicious both served hot or cold, and I love that they’re bite sized. That means you can eat 10 and not feel guilty…right?

These are the perfect pop-able appetizer for Christmas. The only problem is how hard it is to eat just one. You can pretty much guarantee that a double batch will be necessary. We ate these for a full meal in our house. Can you blame us?! Too fun and delicious. Holiday baking is good and all, but I love the holiday starters most. Please give me all of the meatballs, dips, nachos, and of course these Pepper Jelly Hogs in a Blanket. These are making it on all of our holiday menus for SURE. Yum yum yum.

I like things with a little bit of heat but not way too spicy. That’s why pepper jelly is perfect. Sugar and spice and everything nice! I think you’re gonna love these as much as we do. You guys are my people.

I love your blog and most of the recipes, however, I do not need 10 pictures of the completed item. would be helpful to see some of the steps along the way from start to finish
    Becky Hardin
    Hi Patty! I totally understand your criticism...I get a little carried away with the photographs sometimes because that is my passion. I typically don't have time to photograph the process since having a baby, but I'll do my best to incorporate that in more when possible. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

      Hi Becky, please don’t take patty’s comments as criticism. I too would love to see a couple of pics of the process. I love your recipes and pics and Would feel more comfortable seing the process. Thank you for all you do to maKe us feel more comfortable trying different recipes. You are a treasure.
        Becky Hardin
        I totally understand, thank you for the sweet words Marie. I just don't have time at this time to do a lot of step by step shots. I put a lot of care into setting up the shots so I'm pretty slow. I'm trying to incorporate that in the future. So glad to have you as a reader!

    Becky Hardin
    Yes it would! We actually made it that way last night and it worked great :)

What brand of pepper jelly did you use. I did not see a list of brands. I have never ussed pepper jelly and would like to follow your ingredients to the letter.
    Becky Hardin
    We used this brand: https://www.google.com/shopping/product/784315783436290246?q=pepper+jelly+brands&biw=1209&bih=612&dpr=2&prds=paur:ClkAsKraXzGvosFJKv45FfJMukNCR3jKUhRDS-fuXCA8xTmN7PtTXTjcyuo7jGPGipuGc6FiOMbW0nibE5ZytRrRPLi1Ds82sN2VkFwb8oe4WRkYI4XOCKa0GBIZAFPVH70KdrIY7EyPS4-crsbtMI92hbMZQQ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjV1MPsrZLYAhVISiYKHXuQAZUQ8wIIswMwCA but really any red pepper jelly should work great :)

Will this also work with just a regular muffin tin or does it have to be a mini muffin tin?
    Becky Hardin
    A mini muffin tin definitely works best. You could use regular but they might be quite a bit bigger. Still would be great though!
Tara W
In step #6 can you clarify what you mean by "cut side up"? If the dough goes around the outside of the sausage, aren't both sides of the sausage the "Cut Side"? Or does the dough go all the way around the edge and flat side of the sausage as well? Can't wait to make these... they look delicious!
    Becky Hardin
    I meant cut sausage side up, but I totally see how that was confusing. I'm re-wording that now. Thanks for pointing it out! Hope you have a wonderful holiday :)
Belinda reed
Can these be made Early and refrigerated?
    Becky Hardin
    Yes I think so, I haven't done that but I don't see why not. I would warm in the oven when ready to serve.
Susie
do you use PRe cooked sausages?
    Becky Hardin
    We did. They were fully cooked although recommended to heat before eating.
Diana
wow that's very rude...Becky please keep doing your page however you like. It is yours after all. I just hate it when people come into my home and feel the need to tell me what I am doing wrong. Manners just don't seem to be taught anymore.
Miss Kitty
Yes Becky, its really hard to wrap dough around a piece of sausage ( meow) How to Pictures would DEFINITELY help those who failed KINDERGARTEN (meow)
