What are Pigs in Blankets? 

Traditionally pigs in blankets are small sausages - usually chipolatas - which are wrapped in bacon and usually served along side Christmas dinner – in the UK anyways. 

However this varies around the world - in America, the blanket is not bacon but is pastry and they use hotdog sausages instead of chipolatas. 

American’s also use pancakes as the blanket in some cases.
