Blanket over the Pig. (My version of Pig in a Blanket)

Elsa Dreyer


This recipe is My version of Pig in a Blanket. I use this recipe for Years for Tailgaiting, and as a Appetizer. The Kids can't get enough. You can do it in the oven or outside on the Grill. If You use the outside grill, cover the grill with Foil where there is not much coals and spray the foil with cooking spray. You don't want to burn Your sausage before Your cheese is melted. I promise You, they will come back for more and more!!!
