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!

What Are Pigs in Blankets?

Pigs in blankets are a type of food which is also known as 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!
