    Sausage wrapped in pretzel dough & baked into a delicious treat, similar to the familiar "pigs in a blanket" :)


    • 2 tubes Pillsbury (or similar) breadsticks
    • 1 pkg lil smokies sausages
    • 2 tbsp butter
    • 2 tbsp course sea salt


    1. Pre-heat oven according to breadstick package directions (may vary by brand).
    2. Roll out breadstick dough and cut into thin strips about 1/8 inch wide and 1 inch long with a pizza cutter.
    3. Lay two strips of dough across one another to form an 'x.' Lay two more strips so it forms a star (*).
    4. Lay a sausage on the dough.
    5. Lift the first end up and wrap diagonally over sausage.
    6. Do the same with each end all the way around, tucking excess ends under the already placed pieces as you go so it ends up with a 'braided' appearance.
    7. Bake according to breadstick package directions (again, may vary by brand)
    8. Melt butter
    9. Lightly dip each baked "pig in a basket" in butter (or brush with a basting brush) and sprinkle with sea salt.
    10. Serve with mustard, honey, or your favorite dipping sauce (cheese dip or spread is excellent with these).
