We are addicted to these grown-up hogs in a blanket! There's so much flavor for such bite-sized appetizers. —Becky Hardin, St. Peters, Missouri

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 package (12 ounces) fully cooked spicy chicken sausage links, cut into 1-in. slices
  • 1/4 cup pepper jelly
  • Stone-ground mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Coat 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll crescent dough and separate into 2 rectangles; press perforations to seal. Cut dough lengthwise into 3/4-in. strips. Wrap a strip of dough around a sausage slice, gently stretching dough as you roll. Place cut side up in a muffin cup; repeat with remaining dough and sausage. Spoon pepper jelly over each slice.
  3. Bake until golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before removing to a serving plate. Serve warm with mustard.
