A New Twist on Pigs in a Blanket
Blogger Stacey Little from Southern Bite shares a fun twist on the traditional “pig in a blanket” with these Spicy Pigs in a Blanket Dunkers with Sriracha Dipping Sauce
For lots of folks, the arrival of Fall means cooler temperatures, heartier meals, warmer clothes, pumpkin patches, and football! When the leaves start falling, the team spirit ramps up. With football games, come the tailgate parties, and you can't have an official tailgate party without food.
One of my favorite football snacks are Spicy Pigs in a Blanket Dunkers with Sriracha Dipping Sauce! This isn't your average kiddy food, either. Savory pancakes with garlic and green onion are wrapped around sausage with pepper jack cheese. To top it off, we make a delicious and spicy sriracha sauce with mayonnaise, sour cream, and sriracha. These puppies are sure to score a touchdown at your next tailgate! Offer up a grown up version of the childhood classic pigs in the blanket for your next Sunday football get together. The spicy flavors from the pepper jack cheese and the Sriracha gives the appetizers great zing.
Preheat the oven to 250°F. Cook the sausage in a medium skillet according to the package instructions.
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly spray it with nonstick cooking spray and pour two heaping tablespoonsful of the pancake batter to the skillet. Cook the pancake until the edges are dry and the pancake is bubbly. Flip the pancake and cook until it is golden. Repeat with remaining batter and keeping the finished pancakes on a heatproof platter in the warm oven.
While the pancakes are cooking, make the sriracha dipping sauce by combining the mayonnaise, sour cream, and sriracha in a medium bowl. Add sriracha to reach your desired heat level. Store in the refrigerator.
