Sausage or Hotdogs Dough Appetizer Recipe


               A fast appetizer that is a great way to please any crowd at any party gathering, game day, picnics or the kids will love them in their lunches! No matter how old you are these are still a favorite little treat!

These little bundles are an all time football day favorite. A piece of your favorite sausage, wrapped around a blanket of dough actually now a vintage recipe. Meat and dough,  hence the name pigs in a blanket.

1 package of your favorite cooked Italian sausage or suggestions, beef hogs,
kielbasa, bratwurst, cheddar hotdogs, smoked sausage.
1 pound of pizza dough, frozen or homemade or you can use refrigerator dough like crescent rolls
cut in half you will need two tubes for a package of hotdogs.
Mustard of choice, dijon, spicy or tomato Sauce and if you like,
Honey flavored or plain barbecue sauce.
Spices: cayenne pepper, parsley, garlic powder, black pepper
grating cheese
extra virgin olive oil

Take a tablespoon of dough roll out to a 1/4 inch thick. Put a dab of your favorite sauce on the dough I usually use( hot mustard for hotdogs or tomato sauce for Italian sausage, or barbecue for cheddar brats).



Add a piece of the sausage that is cut about 1/2 inch thick, roll up. Sprinkle the top with grated cheese, garlic powder drizzle olive oil over the top a little black pepper and cayenne pepper and parsley. Place on a cookie sheet that has been greased, with side seam down. Bake at 400 degrees until brown.














Serve warm with more mustard of choice. So, easy and sure to please those fans!

This is a great recipe when you need to make a large batch of something yummy for a party..I'm making your pizza crust recipe next week for tomato pie, I bet the same dough would be perfect for these!

I bet you could do this with tofu hot dogs - i never thought about that, but it would be kind of fun!

@tasty trix wow tofu sounds good, even if you use just peppers and mushrooms would be good,,

Perfect football snacks! I'd have to arm wrestle my kids for these (or just make an extra batch).
