Dramatic Sausage Rolls

Dramatic Sausage RollOnce again Pinterest fails in the attribution department, so I’m not sure who’s responsible for these screaming pigs-in-blankets. They are, however, undeniably awesome and would be an easy hors de’oeuvre for a cocktail party.

Since the sausages don’t appear to be baked into the dough, I’m betting that the cones were made using the same general method as for these crescent-roll “carrots:” Strips of dough are wrapped around a cream horn mold and then baked before filling. In this case, you’d want to add two bumps of dough for eyeballs (just stick them on with a little egg wash) and two small rolls of dough split at the end to make arms or fins or whatever those things are.

Once baked, make your favorite recipe for cocktail franks (the ones in barbecue sauce are tasty) and insert one into each cone. Decorate the eyes with a little dab of powdered sugar thinned with milk, then add a pupil using either food coloring or a dot of melted chocolate (be careful not to use too much if you plan to re-warm before serving, lest it melt and run).

Super-easy, and hilariously dramatic.
