Mini Beef Smokies "pigs" in a Blanket

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

These are pigs in a blanket using buscuits instead of croissants, and beef instead of pork.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 40 beef Little Smokies sausages
  • 10 biscuits (butter flavor dough)
  • nonstick cooking spray (I use olive oil spray)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Take buscuits and cut them into three pieces in a lengthwise manner, with the middle piece bieng bigger than the sides. Then cut the middles in half width wise.
  3. Flatten out each buscuit piece into a rectangle, and roll up a lil smokie in each one. Make sure you roll them good and tight, or they could unroll in the oven while cooking.
  4. Lightly spray a nonstick baking sheet with a little bit of the nonstick spray.
  5. Place the lil "pigs" onto the sheet in rows about an inch or so apart.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

I was glad to see a biscuit recipe for piggies and not just crescents. I think the cresents make them too greasy!
