Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Prepare the dough: Open both cans of crescent rolls (do not roll them out). Cut into 1 inch strips and unroll, then cut into 4 pieces.
Wrap the smokies: Wrap each smokie in dough and place on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each roll with egg wash and top with salt, sesame seeds and/or poppy seeds.
Bake: Transfer to the oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm with mustard or ketchup.
Make ahead - you can make these in advance and store in the fridge! If you are storing them longer than overnight - you can make them, freeze on trays and then store in freezer bags for up to a month! Easy snacks ready to be baked and served hot at anytime! No need to let them thaw before baking, just allow for a slightly longer baking time.
If you can't find mini cocktail smokies, you can use different types of sausage or hot dogs. Use your favorite sausage, such as a chicken sausage, andouille or even smoked sausages.
All leftovers should be stored in an airtight container or wrapped in foil/cling wrap (tightly) in the fridge for up to a week! Again, you can freeze these little pigs for up to a month if you want to keep them longer!
You can heat refrigerated pigs in a blanket by microwaving them, placing them in a crockpot on warm for 20-30 minutes, or you can reheat them in the oven. If using the oven, place them on a baking sheet at 350° and bake for 8-10 minutes.
