ingredients

  • 8 -12 biscuits, raw (either from a can or a recipe)
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • 16 cocktail franks
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Either mix up a batch of your favorite biscuit dough and cut into 16 pieces or open a can of biscuits (the flaky kind is my favorite) and separate each biscuit into half (this should give you 16 biscuit halves).
  • Take the 2 slices of cheese, cut each into 4 strips, and then cut those in half the other direction, giving you 16 short strips.
  • Place 1 strip of cheese and 1 sausage onto each biscuit piece and wrap dough around them. Place seam side down on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Brush the tops with melted butter and serve warm.
  • You can of course, substitute any of your favorite kolache fillings.

    quick easy and much more economical for a family of boys that act like they have hollow legs.

    I have always called these pigs in a blanket. My grandson was here last week & we made these together. He was very good at rolling them up and ate three for breakfast! We used flakey Grands biscuits and more cheese. Thank you for a recipe that was easy & fun to do in the kitchen for grandma time! Made for ZWT4.

    These are simply great! Reminds me of the sausage rolls I make. Good thing I doubled this recipe as DH ate a lot of this. Recommended for snacks, to go and I'll bringing some with me when I go out tomorrow. Thank you!

    Though I adapted this recipe quite a bit, it's definitely five stars! I used refrigerated crescent roll dough from the grocery, and tried a few different fillings -- the best was lil'smokies with cheese. I also did some with chicken, bacon, mozzarella and pasta sauce, and some with hamburger, cheddar, and pasta sauce. All were delicious! Thank you!
