While you’re looking at these delicious pigs in a blanket (which are one of my favorite appetizers), I’m going to be stuffing my face full of delicious Japanese food. I’m going to be in Japan for a couple of weeks on business, and it should be a good time. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been there, and I’m sure lots of things have changed since then. I can’t wait to eat my fill of rice balls! I’m just not crazy about the super long plane ride.
Getting back to these pigs in a blanket, I made these for Thanksgiving and then again just for myself. I actually got a bit lazy the other night and just munched on these and paired it with a hard cider…yeah that was my dinner. These things called to me and I just had to eat them.
I will say these are best straight from the oven. BUT you can reheat them the next day and they’ll still taste freshly made. The trick is to heat them for about 20-30 seconds in the microwave and then transfer them to the toaster oven for a minute or two. I actually ate them a bit cold the next day, but my boyfriend will only eat them heated.
These would be perfect for your holiday gathering! I know they’re always the first to go at mine. It’s hard to resist these fun finger foods!
