Pigs in a Blanket get an upgrade...
Cheesy Pigs in a Pretzel take a little more time to make, but the results are outstanding. Added bonus: they're easy! Imagine if you had served these oinkers at your last Superbowl party-- can you say hostess with the most-ess? Tuck this recipe away for future use, it's a keeper!
1 pack Little weenies
2 containers of Crescent Rolls
Block cheddar, cut into strips
Fine Sea Salt
2 Tbsp Butter
Next, put 5 cups of water and 3 tablespoons of baking soda in a pot and bring it to boil. Put in 1-3 doughy pigs at a time into boiling water. When I made them, they initially sunk and then began to float after about 30 seconds. Either way, use a straining spoon and remove doughy pigs after about 30 seconds. Place doughy pigs on baking sheet, leaving room between each for the dough to expand.
Repeat with remaining doughy pigs until all have been quick boiled and are spaced on baking sheets. If some of the dough opens up that's okay, just leave it. Melt butter in a microwave safe cup until liquid. Lightly brush or carefully spoon butter onto top of each doughy pig, coating surface. Sprinkle each with sea salt.
