Good things can come in small packages. Wednesday is National Pigs in a Blanket Day.

The simple yet satisfying hors d’oeuvre is a favorite for kids and adults in the U.S. The dish is usually hot dogs wrapped in a biscuit or croissant dough and then baked. 

However, across the globe, the recipe might call for something unique. In the United Kingdom, it usually consists of sausages wrapped in bacon. In China, a pastry wrapped meat that is steamed is called as lap cheong bao.

Pigs in a blanket are also easy to make with children and can get the entire family involved with cooking.
