Servings 1 (9 inch) ‘loaf’


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 pounds pizza dough
  • 65 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
  • 8 ounces white cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  • Brush the bottom and sides of a spring form pan with melted butter and set aside.
  • Lightly flour a clean surface and roll dough, until ¼ inch thick (can divide dough in half and roll half at a time, if easier). Cut slab of dough into 1” by 2” pieces. Wrap each lil’ smokey in a piece of pizza dough and pinch the seam shut.
  • Once all smokies have been wrapped, line the pigs in a blanket, vertically around the border of the pan 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.
  • Cheese Sauce: While the loaf bakes, make the sauce. Melt butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add flour and whisk together for 2 minutes. Stir in milk and continue to whisk for 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture is smooth. Add mustard and cheese and whisk together until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 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.
