A lot of us are only into sports because of the food, us included. Which is why Jenny and I always bring it when it comes to Super Bowl recipes. We love appetizers, and we love fried stuff, and cheesy stuff, we love it all. Needless to say we love this new recipe, and it’s a personal favorite of mine. These Pull Apart Pigs in a Blanket are amazing. There is a bit of work to this recipe, but if you have your heart set of making pigs in a blanket that is already a bit of work, this is just like a cooler presentation in my opinion. We paired it with a marinara sauce and mustard cheese sauce but you should probably add ranch to the mix. Happy eating!

Pull Apart Pigs in a Blanket
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 pounds pizza dough
- 70 to 75 lil’ smokies about 2 packages of 14 oz Smokies
mustard cheese sauce
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 cups milk
- 1 ½ tablespoons whole grain mustard

pigs in a blanket
- Preheat oven to 375˚F.
- Brush the bottom and sides of a 9" springform pan with melted butter and set aside.
- Lightly flour a clean surface and roll dough, until 1/8 inch thick (can divide dough in half and roll half at a time, if easier). Cut slab of dough into 1 1/2” by 2” pieces. Wrap each lil’ smokey in a piece of pizza dough and pinch the seam shut.
- Once all smokies have been wrapped, vertically line the pigs in a blanket around the side of the pan (seam side Inward) and continue to do so until the entire pan is filled and pigs in a blanket are snug, but not too tightly packed together.
- Tightly cover pan with foil and bake for about 30 minutes.
- Uncover pigs in a blanket and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the top is nicely browned.
- Remove from heat and allow to loaf cool, about 10 minutes.
- Remove pull apart bread from spring form pan and serve immediately with cheese sauce.
- Melt butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add flour and whisk together for 2 minutes. Stir in milk and continue whisking for 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture is smooth. Whisk in mustard until evenly distributed. Remove pot from heat and whisk small handfuls of grated cheese at a time. Season with salt and pepper.

Love these recipes!!
This is something my family would definitely go for! We are a small group of 6. Could this be made in an angel food pan where the bottom slips out? This would be a more feasible amount for us to eat.
I put everything together and then found out my granddaughter is having a birthday party in a week . So I threw it in the freezer to bring as an appetizer aside from cooking it a little longer do you think I’m gonna have a problem with sogginess?
Hi Rita, you should be just fine as long as you’re baking it frozen, without trying to thaw it.
Thanks so much for taking the time to ease my dilemma. It will be great I’m sure.
Can you make them on a sheet pans and just serve them from that. We have Party’s of 150 to 200 and we all Love all kinds of games so it’s a big deal at our place. We plan for days ahead. We have a large property with A 4000 sq ft Log home and a 2000 sq ft log building just for party’s. So Thank you for Sharing and Take Care and Happy Game Days. And Holidays.⚽️🏈⚾️🏀

Hi Susie, Sounds like you guys are going to have a ton of fun! I dont think you will be able to use a sheet pan because the pigs need a high wall so they can be stacked together. I hope that makes sense!
Thank you for the recipe ♥
My springform pan was too big so I put an empty clean tin can in the center……so I made a wreath of lil smokies. They are still in the oven but, omg, so cute! Can’t wait to serve these as game day snacks! I’m going to sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan during the last 15 mins and they are dipping in purchased hot sauce or salsa. Yum!
this was fun and easy. A few pieces of info that I thought I’d share:
1. use a 9″ springform as the 10″ was way too big
2. The 9″ pan was still too big so I put a ceramic ramekin (heavily prayed the outside with cooking spray) in the middle of the pan then formed a ring of pigs-in-blankets around the ramekin
3. once the loaf was baked I then filled the ramekin with the cheese sauce (which it was hot so it kept it warm!)
4. I only needed one package of refrigerated pizza dough to wrap all the smokies (using 2 packages of smokies)
C- That sounds amazing!!! Wish you could have uploaded a picture of the tower of piggies! Thanks so much for an inspiring recipe, Jenny!!
Awesome idea! Used your quantities and did some math to make 3 different sized loaves in spring pans; after they were totally cooled, I stacked them for a tiered effect. Used it as a snack at the kiddo’s birthday. Total hit, recipe works well and totally adaptable to any quantity. Thanks!
i bought 3 packages of smokies and 2 refrigerated pizza doughs. I ended up using 2 1/4 of each. (Made extra pigs in a blanket to use later). I will try an 8” springform pan next time. Love this recipe! Cool presentation for the NCAA tourney party!
Typos! Seriously…it’s a receipe, no need to proof or edit. The review on 2/3 was totally uncalled for! I too am a parent with limited time…however, it only took a minute to read the reviews, which were helpful. Maybe consider some speed reading should be considered since time is an issue! Great receipe, Thx for your time
Many typos in recipe and your responses! When searching for a recipe and while making it…people don’t always have time to look at continued added comments on your page while cooking. As a busy parent and seasoned home chef, I don’t have time for mishaps due to typos on your end. Looking for another page to follow…
There were two minor recipe typos, ‘tablspoon instead of tablespoon’ and ‘snog instead of snug’…nothing a seasoned home chef shouldn’t be able to read around. Seasoned home chefs generally also read a recipe in its entirety before making it, not just while cooking.
Good reply! They are delicious!
Yea. Great reply- folks can get wayyyy to picky
Don’t have time for mishaps due to typo’s, but plenty of time to make yourself look like a complete arse on here. Well done!
Trying this for the first time for a Sunday School class morning snack. I bought 2 pkgs of sausages and 2 tube pkgs of pizza dough (ea. Less than a pound). I only used 1 of the dough and all the sausages and had to cut up a couple of hot dogs to finish dough and fill up springform pan. I baked as directions stated and I’m having to cook a lot longer to get the dough to brown up. Hoping I’m not having oven trouble as my dishwasher just died and the store basically said appliances only last about 10 yrs!! Anyway love how it looks and hoping it will taste good too!
I make my pigs in a blanket stuffed with sauerkraut and mustard. Would that work with this?
I think so! That sounds so good!
I’d like to make this in advance for a party. Does the cheese sauce reheat well?
It does! You may just need to thin it out a bit with a little milk when reheating!
