Ring in the New Year with a Pillsbury Pot Luck

Happy 2012, y’all!

My parents hosted a small get together last night to celebrate  the new year.  My dad turns 50 tomorrow!  Justin told Bryson “Pop is going to be the big five-o!” and Bryson said “Pop is OLD!?”  Too funny!

When we do parties, we like to keep it simple.  You won’t find full meals or champagne.  We like to go with easy foods like appetizers, finger foods, and desserts.  One of our favorite easy go-to snacks is pigs in a blanket.

Pigs in a Blanket

1 can Pillsbury® Grands Homestyle biscuits
1 package cocktail weenies

  • Tear each biscuit into 3 pieces and flatten out.  So, if you have a can of 8 biscuits, you will end up with 24 pieces.
  • Take each biscuit piece, place a cocktail weenie in it, and roll it up.
  • Place on baking sheet seam side down.
  • Bake at 350 degrees until biscuits are brown, about 15 minutes.

You can add cheese to them before baking.  I like them plain, but I know some folks like to dip them in ketchup and mustard.
