Tips and Techniques

  1. Adjust the cooking time because the internal temperature of ovens may vary.
  2. As an alternative for butter, brush beaten egg white with water on the of each bread before baking.
  3. Choose any kind of cheese you want.
  4. Serve it with any condiments you prefer.
  5. Rotate the baking sheet after 8 minutes to evenly cook all pieces. This is done because some parts of the oven produce more heat than the other parts.

Hi Liz,

Yes. This is a pigs in a blanket with a twist! But of course I do love the UK version of it.

This is a different take on pigs in blankets for me. In the UK pigs in blankets are small sausages wrapped in bacon, traditionally served at Christmas with roast Turkey.
