I’m all about the veggies most days, but I also love to have fun in the kitchen and whip up vegan alternatives to staple concepts! like these vegan Pigs in a Blanket!
Back in the late 90’s, this concept was at an all time high. Everyone served them at gatherings and they evolved to be a staple. Today they are seen less and less (good thing), but I still loved the components and the fact they are just so effortless! I typically gravitate away from anything that’s premade, but when you’re in a bind for time they can be a great solution.
I’ve been into all things Everything Bagel lately, so this recipe was just a no brainer!!
What’s fab about this vegan version?! Everything! They are quick, easy, fairly affordable, involve minimal ingredients, you can switch up the sauce, you can find store bought pastry dough everywhere, they pack more flavor with the seasoning, the sauce pairs perfectly, the dough is light and crispy versus crescent rolls etc, they are good for every season, can easily be made in bulk, great for entertaining, and perfect for game day eats!! Want to minimize the ready made products?! You can make carrot dogs instead!!
If you love effortless vegan concepts for entertaining or just to indulge, you’re going to love these new vegan Everything Bagel Pigs in a Blanket!!
