Pigs in a Blanket

PREP TIME 15 MIN    TOTAL TIME 35 MIN   SERVES 4

These Pigs in a Blanket are the party appetizers that your guests won’t be able to resist. They’re great for a tailgate or cocktail party. We topped these beauties with a Brazilian favorite, “Malagueta pepper” aioli, but they would be just as good with a plain yellow mustard. This is a quick and easy recipe that will be a hit time and time again.

INGREDIENTS

• 1  11.5 oz bag of Garlic Asiago Brazilian Cheese Bread, thawed to room temp
• 18 – 20 mini sausages (any favorite will do)
• Vegetable oil

Malagueta Pepper Aioli

• Juice of 1 lime
• 1 t shallots, minced
• 1/2 t  garlic, minced
• 10 Malagueta peppers, minced
• 5 oz mayonnaise

INSTRUCTIONS

PREHEAT OVEN TO 400° F
STEP 1
With oiled hands, knead each Brazi Bite into a ball and roll into a hot dog shape. Depress the length of the Brazilian Cheese Bread into a “hot dog” bun shape.
STEP 2
Place the mini sausage in the middle and crimp the edges of the dough around it. Continue with the remaining bites and mini sausages.
STEP 3
Place onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes until golden.
MALAGUETA PEPPER AIOLI
Put the mayonnaise in a bowl. Set aside. In a pan sauté shallots and garlic with the malagueta peppers. Add the lime juice. Let cook for 1 minute. Add the mixture to the mayonnaise and mix well.
SERVE
Serve the pigs in a blanket, hot, with the malagueta pepper aioli or your favorite topping. Enjoy!
