Food Facts

Pigs in a blanket are an extremely popular appetizer in America, for all ages. Did you know they may be as old as the 1600’s?  Despite rumors that it is an invention as modern as 1957, field laborers in the England of the 1600’s had what was essentially the same dish.  Putting meat inside of dough was an obvious solution for a quick and nourishing meal on the go.
