Pigs in blankets (also known kilted sausages in Scotland) refers to a variety of different sausage-based foods in the United States, United Kingdom, Denmark, Australia, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Canada, and Japan. They are typically small in size and can be eaten in one or two bites. For this reason, they are usually served as an appetizer or hors d'oeuvre or are accompanied by other dishes in the 'main course' section of a meal. In the West, especially in the United States and Canada, the bite-sized variety of pigs in a blanket is a common hors d'oeuvre served at cocktail parties and is often accompanied by a mustard or aioli dipping sauce.

Pigs in a blanket are usually different from sausage rolls, which are a larger, more filling item served for breakfast and lunch in parts of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and, more rarely, the United States and Canada

:clap2: Well done. I suppose I could've googled it, but didn't have time!

Our pigs in blankets're small though, aren't they? I think our sausage rolls're getting smaller as well. We made some at home, but they were cut into bite-sized pieces to join the blinis, crackers and other bits.

Nah - not healthy at all, but I eat "proper" food for the rest of the year, so a bit of indulgence's alright.

Yes, but we had a glorious dinner, and then the party food was put out. I don't know what to do with the leftovers. Still, the menfolk're still up. They might go and snatch bits as the night wears on.
