How to make pigs in a blanket with these easy recipes:
There are two types: those eaten with a Christmas lunch of turkey, gravy, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, carrots, brussel sprouts, etc, are formed by small sausages, usually chipolatas, and wrapped in bacon. The other type is cocktail sausages or wieners cooked in a puff pastry and served as a snack rather than an accompaniment to a main meal.
