Have you ever bought the Trader Joe’s “Everything” seasoning mix?  Everything you love about an Everything Bagel…without the bagel!

My version of the mixture is a little different because I have omitted black sesame seeds.  Partially because I think that one kind of sesame seeds works but also because when you live where I do they don’t exactly carry everything you want.  That includes black sesame seeds.

You still get all of the wonderful flavors and color with the poppy seeds.  Topping the pigs in a blanket with it is pure magic.  I can’t wait for you to try them!

Using Crescent Roll Dough for Pigs in a Blanket

Refrigerated crescent roll dough is such an easy and delicious ingredient to use as the “blanket” for the little smokies.

When you open the roll, it will be divided into 8 triangles.  Take two triangles and press them together to make 4 rectangles.

Then using a pizza cutter {or sharp knife}, cut each rectangle into 8 strips of dough.  You will still be able to see where the seam is, just press it together if you need to.

Take a strip and wrap it around each little smokie sausage.  Place them onto a silicone mat {or parchment} lined baking sheet.  You want them to be about 1 inch apart because the dough will rise a little bit during baking.

Can I make Pigs in a Blanket Ahead of Time?

You can make them ahead of time but not too far ahead.  The dough can dry out easily, so they really are best when made right before you bake them.

If you do make them ahead, be sure that you cover them with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to bake.

How to make “Everything” Seasoning Mix

To make the “Everything” seasoning mix you will need poppy seeds, sesame seeds, kosher salt, dried minced garlic and dried minced onion.

To get the mixture to stick to your everything pigs in a blanket, make an egg wash.  I like to use 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water, then whisk it together.

Brush the mixture onto the top of each crescent wrapped smokie and then sprinkle with “everything” seasoning.

Serve warm with your favorite dip.  Our favorite is Barbecue Ranch.  I just take 1/2 cup of ranch dressing and 1/4 cup of our favorite barbecue sauce and mix them together.

Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for in an airtight container for up to 3 days but they are really best fresh.

Set them out for your favorite football fans and watch them disappear fast.  The flavor that the “everything” seasoning adds is totally awesome!

Who do you think will make it to the 2020 Super Bowl?  My hope was the Eagles but I guess we will be rooting for another team now.
