Swiss Cheese Chicks in a Blanket

Swiss Cheese Chicks in a Blanket
Tis the season for neighborhood egg hunts and last Saturday we held ours.  It was a delightful Spring party.  Children played as their parents visited together and snacked on divine, Swiss Cheese Chicks in a Blanket along with a fast, flavorful Honey Mustard Sauce.

 Yummy served warm, they chicks will fly off their plate!

Besides baskets and filled eggs, we were invited to bring an appetizer.  I made Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip with tortilla chips and veggies along with these little babies… which are a breeze to make and loved by young and old.

Swiss Chicks in a Blanket

Start with chicken and apple smoked sausages.  I like that they are gluten, MSG, and nitrate free.  Add Swiss cheese, and packaged crescent rolls.
Cut 16 crescent rolls in half with kitchen sheers.
Next cut thin slices of Swiss Cheese, and then cut them in half.
The sausages are completely cooked, so slip their too tough casings (or skins) and discard them.
Cut each sausage into thirds.  Add them to the dough and cheese triangles…
roll ’em up and place them on a baking sheet.  Pop them into the oven and bake them for 13 to 15 minutes till golden brown.
Mix honey mustard and mayonnaise
to make a easy, delicious dipping sauce
Serve toasty and warm with honey mustard dipping sauce and lots of love.  You’ll be amazed at how fast these little chicks go!

    That looks like a totally fun idea!
    My fam is coming for the weekend and I know that grandkids would love this.

    I want some NOW!

    The idea of a neighbourhood Easter egg hunt is lovely. When our grandchildren lived nearby I’d hide chocolate in those plastic eggs and hide them in the garden.
    Those little crescent roll snacks look delicious.

    Hi, new to your blog and newest follower..lovely blog 🙂

  12. Gloria (The Little Red House with the White Porch)

    I first thought that I don’t know how I’d like that type of sausage (I’m a sweet Italian sausage type of girl!) but that sure looks good! I should try something healthy for a change. 😉
    P.S. I am over here because I saw a comment of yours on another blog, that you lived in Astoria for a time. I was born and bred in Brooklyn… Greenpoint… which is very near to Astoria! My friend’s Mom still lives in Astoria. Nice meeting you!

  13. Julie

    What delicious treats you brought to share!! What a beautiful Easter basket!!

  14. The Hopeless Romantic

    These look so yummy. I have a teenage son who would gobble them down quickly. What a yummy twist on ordinary pigs in a blanket……stop by if u get a chance, Bonnie

  15. Ali

    Oh that looks delicious. I had made pigs in a blanket with this sausage before, but I never thought to add Swiss or a dipping sauce. I bet it tastes fabulous.

  16. gnee @ Singing With Birds

    After several emails and questions, here’s what I used for Swiss Chicks:

    aidells Chicken and Apple Sausages come in a 3 pound package at Costco. I know I’ve seen it in grocery stores and it is a commonly found sausage.

    Hope that helps. Thanks for all of your great comments.

  17. Kristin

    oh my these look really good. I love pigs in a blanket so I know that I will love these. They could be my new favorite

  18. Debbie

    These look delicious! I’m glad you gave the direction to cut off the skins because if you hadn’t, I wouldn’t have done it. I would love to bring these to one of our church things that require finger food, but I’ll bet they are better if done and served at home.

  19. Katie

    Oh wow. I am reading this post late at night and I want to make it and eat it!! It looks so good 🙂 Great job capturing the process and your pretty Easter eggs. Thanks for linking up to Tracy’s party!

    I am glad to see you are still enjoying the Artichoke Dip, and those Swiss Chicks look delicious and fun to make! Thanks for sharing. I also think I will take your idea to make little mini nests for the Easter table favor. Keep up the great blog posts, but don’t forget to take time to get some R&R once in awhile? I was just in your neck of the woods and thought of you. We need to get together sometime soon. I miss you!

  21. Little Brick Ranch

    These are super and I love that you used chicken sausage instead of a hot dog or breakfast sausage link!! If you get a sec, pop on over to Foodie Friday and link up! Oh, and I found you on The Shabby Chic Cottage. 🙂

  22. Tiff

    Those sound so yummy! It doesn’t hurt that I’m waiting on dinner in the oven. I’m going to make these for my bible study group next week! Thanks for sharing.
