Super Bowl Snacks

ONE WEEK TILL SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!!!!  Are you planning your party yet?  I think a must for any Super Bowl party are… Pigs in a Blanket. I seriously love Pigs in a Blanket.  Who doesn’t love Pigs in a Blanket?  I decided to try a little spin on the classic Pigs in a Blanket… RUBEN Pigs in a Blanket!

Fun Fact:  They are called Kilted Sausages in Scotland.  That makes them sound so much classier!

Here is the recipe

Ingredients: 1/2 cup of Sauerkraut*, drained and roughly chopped – 3 tablespoons pickle relish –  8oz can of Crescent Rolls – Swiss Cheese Slices – 20 Cocktail Pups – 1 eggs – Caraway Seeds


First, Open up the Crescent Rolls and spread flat on a cookie sheet (lined with parchment paper).  Smoosh the “triangles” together so they form a rectangle.  There will be four rectangles.  Cut each rectangle into 5 strips.  (As you can see in the pictures, I cut 4 strips… I thought I was dealing with bigger weenies. hehe)


Mix together sauerkraut and relish and then spread a little on each strip.  Next, place a piece of swiss cheese on each strip and then top with a weenie!  Roll them up, brush with egg and sprinkle on the caraway seeds!


Side Note: You can also make pizza roll ups too!  Just spread on some pizza sauce, top with cheese and rolllll them up.  Brush with egg and sprinkle parmesan on top.


Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes!


Serve with Thousand Island Dressing or Sweet & Hot Mustard for dipping… and of course beer! I got Sam Adams Boston Lager in honor of my Patriots.  Even though they are not playing this year…


Want a bite?? YUMMY!


*A big thank you to Larry King and his Brooklyn Water Bagel Company for supplying me with Sauerkraut. (I got friends there.)  They hooked me up….. There are only ginormous jars of Sauerkraut at the grocery store and I didn’t want to buy it for this one recipe because I was never going to use it again.  I wanted to pull a George Banks in Father of The Bride when he started ripping open hot dog bun packages…. I just need like 1/8 of the huge jar of Sauerkraut.
