Tips for making Jalapeno Popper Pigs in a Blanket

  • You can use fresh jalapenos, pickled jalapenos, or canned jalapenos. Your choice.
  • Typically crescent roll dough is used for Pigs in a Blanket, but I love the extra cripsness and butteriness puff pastry provides. No puff pastry? Go ahead and use crescent roll dough.

  1. Just wondering if you could use hot dogs cut in small pieces instead of the little smokies or cocktail wieners? My family doesn’t seem to like anything other then the beef hot dogs.
