Smokies in a BlanketAll you need to make these is a package of beef Little Smokies.  At our market, all of the packages of Little Smokies cost the same price regardless of the type of meat they contained, so I chose beef.   This recipe can be made without modification with other types of Little Smokies if you prefer.

Here’s how to make some Smokies in a Blanket.

Open a package of refrigerated crescent roll dough and separate it into the eight sections that it’s designed to be broken into  One at a time, lay each triangle of dough on a cutting board, and cut it into thirds from the narrow end to the point.  I used a pizza cutter for this because it seemed like the simplest method.  This will give you three narrow strips as shown in the photo.Smokies in a Blanket

Separate the strips from one another. Smokies in a Blanket

Place a Little Smokie on the end of the dough opposite from the point.  It should look as if the dough is pointing away from the small sausage.Smokies in a Blanket

Roll the smokie up in the dough until it all of the dough had been wrapped around it.Smokies in a Blanket

Arrange the smokies on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, and bake at 350 degrees until golden.Smokies in a Blanket
