Best Thing We Ate Last Night: Pigs in a Blanket at Brooklyn Piggies

Best thing we ate last night: Pigs in a Blanket at Brooklyn Piggies

By Kelly Dobkin
Admittedly, we've always had kind of a thing for pigs in a blanket. The snack that's probably best known as the number one party hors d'oeurve (that you used to scarf at Bar Mitzvahs and weddings) has always been a personal guilty pleasure of ours. So leave it to a savvy Brooklyn businesswoman to elevate this retro app into an artisanal experience. Brooklyn Piggies, whose stand you will find every Saturday at Smorgasburg, offers up a frank that's handmade, grass-fed and wrapped in flaky, high-quality puff pastry - the result is one of the most delicious versions of the item that we've ever tasted. The piggies are available in original and spicy variations and come with your choice of ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce. Try them for yourself every Saturday at Smorgasburg from 11AM-6PM, get directions here.
