Today is National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day; it is celebrated on 24th April every year. Check out the facts on how to celebrate this special day!

Pigs in a blanket are a type of food which is also known as pigs in blankets, devils on horsebacks, kilted sausages and wiener winks. They are different sausage-based foods but not sausage rolls.

In the United Kingdom, pigs in blankets are small sausages, or chipolatas wrapped up in bacon. In America, pigs in a blanket often refers to hot dogs, Vienna sausages, or breakfast sausages wrapped in biscuit dough, croissant dough or a pancake and then baked.

To celebrate this day you simply have to cook and eat ‘pigs in a blanket’. For me, this isn’t quite as nice as National Rice Pudding Day, but it still tastes good!
