We have been eating pigs in a blanket for breakfast since we were kids. These pigs in a blanket actually are perfect for breakfast. They are stuffed with scrambled eggs, bacon, and sprinkled with cheese! 

These pigs in a blanket don't need to be dipped in anything, but you could definitely serve ketchup and maybe even mustard alongside these oinkers. They are perfect for tailgating, game-day snacking, or any brunch!


  • 2 packages crescent roll dough
  • 1 (14 ounce) package cocktail franks
  • 1/4 pound bacon (about 5 slices)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Cook the bacon in the oven or on the stovetop until crispy. Let cool slightly and chop into very small bits. 

  3. Whisk the eggs until completely combined and cook in the tablespoon of butter until cooked through. 

  4.  Preheat the oven to 375 F. 

  5. Cut each crescent triangle into three smaller, long and skinny triangles. 

  6. Sprinkle each triangle with a little bacon. Place a small teaspoon of scrambled eggs on top. Then top with a cocktail frank. Roll until completely wrapped in pastry. Place the roll on an ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese. 

  7. Repeat steps with remaining dough and dogs. 

  8. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Serve immediately!
