What should I serve these Cheesy Roll-Up Pigs in a Blanket?

Sure, there’s ketchup, but try these with a good grainy mustard or aioli, ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, and more.

What can I use instead of Pizza dough?

I think the Pizza dough is classic, but you can also use the crescent dough, puff pasty, or biscuit dough. 

You’ll need to allow time for the puff pastry to thaw if you opt for this dough.

You can even make your own pizza dough or bread dough.

What else could I add to elevate these Cheesy Roll-up Pigs in a blanket?

If you’re fancy like that, we suggest adding everything bagel seasoning, brushing with garlic butter before baking, using coarse sea salt, poppy seeds, granulated onion or sesame seeds. You could even try shredded Parmesan. Now, I’m hungry!

Opt for cocktail weiners instead of the traditional hotdog.

You can even use different types of sausage such as spicy andouille. Just make you’re buying precooked meats.

1-1/2 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
