Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures said: Finally! The end of the year is here. Let's share some of our favorite ways to ring in the New Year bite sized style!

I made a pigs in a blanket Christmas wreath appetizer dish not too long ago and was reminded of how much my family really enjoys these little bites! Not to mention they are good warm, and room temperature - so they can sit out for awhile and still be tasty. This iteration adds in a helping of marinara, some pepperoni and a little bit of mozzarella for a tasty twist on the original! Serve with warm marinara; add a sprinkling of Italian seasonings or parmesan for more flavor if you'd like! I served these up at our Christmas day get together and my family made a good dent in them for sure - they never last long at any get together!

Prepping for New Years Parties

Pizza Pigs In Blankets

Nonstick cooking spray, for the baking sheet
1 13.8-ounce tube crescent roll dough
1 cup store-bought pizza sauce, divided
1 1/2 mozzarella sticks, cut into 32 small slices
32 small slices pepperoni 
1 16-oz package lil smokies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roll out crescent roll dough. Spread lightly with some of the marinara sauce, reserving the rest for dipping. Use a pizza cutter, and cut each crescent roll triangle into 3 small triangles. Wrap a pepperoni around a lil smokie and place it at the wide end of the crescent dough. Add a piece of cheese and carefully wrap around. Repeat with all the remaining ingredients and arrange on a baking sheet lined with a silpat, or sprayed lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven 12-14 minutes, or until crescents are golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Move to a serving platter, and add remaining sauce to a small bowl. Warm the sauce and serve alongside the pizza pigs in a blanket to dip.
  5. Optional - sprinkle the tops of the pigs in a blanket with some garlic powder and / or Italian seasoning before baking if desired for extra flavor!
