Give your pigs in a blanket a holiday spin. Kids of all ages won’t be able to keep their hands off these tasty roll-ups.

  • 10 sheets Athens Phyllo® Dough (9” x 14” ), thawed
  • 1 package (14 ounce) cocktail sausages
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Cooking spray
  • Rosemary sprigs for garnish
  • Ketchup or favorite dip for dipping


Thaw one roll of phyllo, following thawing instructions on package. Preheat oven to 375°F. Unroll and cover the sheets with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying out.

Place one sheet of phyllo on cutting board and lightly coat with cooking spray. Layer and repeat with 4 more sheets. Cut layered phyllo into 6 equal sections widthwise and 4 equal sections lengthwise to create 24 squares (approx. 2″ squares). Place 1 teaspoon of cheese in the center of each square. Place sausage diagonally on the corner of the phyllo square. Wrap phyllo over sausage and roll to opposite corner. Place seam side down on a baking tray. Repeat procedure with remaining 5 sheets of phyllo. Lightly spray the outside. Reroll unused sheets and follow storing instructions on package. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until phyllo is golden brown.

Arrange sausages on plate in a circular, wreath-like fashion. Lay rosemary sprigs around the inside of the wreath and place a small bowl filled with ketchup in the center. Serve.
