Once ready to bake, they only take about 15 minutes.

Indeed, if you do not have or like Everything but the bagel seasoning, you can use House Seasoning Blend or my Italian Seasoning Mix.

Of course, simply modify the ingredients to fit your particular needs.

To be sure this is a great make ahead recipe. Prepare the pigs in the blanket and freeze on a baking sheet. Put in an airtight container for up to three months. Then when you are ready to serve, cook as directed but add an additional 5 to 10 minutes.

Absolutely! I like to assemble these ahead of time and bake them off just before serving!
