Food Friday: Pigs in a Blanket (Sort of)

Sometimes foods that have a familiar name might not be what we expect. In my book From the Family Kitchen I wrote about American Chop Suey and how most regions in the United States have a version of this dish but call it by different names.

I found another example today in my copy of  Presbyterian Cook Book. The Women's Society of the First Presbyterian Church. Winfield, Kansas. ca. 1932.

Their recipe, Pigs in a Blanket is a little different than what I would usually associate with that name. No pigs (hot dogs) and no biscuit blanket here. But hey, everything is better with bacon.

  1. Wow--their version sounds like a lot more work too. I think I will stick with hot dogs and a canned biscuit! I wonder how people in Kansas fix their pigs in a blanket today? Regardless,as you mentioned, you can't go wrong when bacon is involved.
