I'm 46 years old and every pig in a blanket that I have ever eaten was surrounded by bread.


Wrapped in bread? So for 46 years you've been eating like an uncivilised beast!

This is what I thought was traditionally associated with the name pig in a blanket.

Back when I was young we used to call cabbage rolls made with a mixture of beef and pork pigs-in-blankets.

you are right, it is. I dunno why these people thing pigs in a blanket is wrapped in bacon. It's always been some sort of dough around a pork sausage.

Bacon wrapped pork sausage should be called pigception.

Note: Must use white bread, preferrably Wonder Bread. This is what we were served in school lunches for 12 bloody years.

A pig in a blanket is a sausage wrapped in bacon , a sausage roll is sausage meat in pastry

what do we expect from a nation who uses the letter Z in all the wrong places, and can't spell colour

or pronounce English words correctly

ahahahhaha


what a joke that article is

…. or pronounce English words correctly....


PMSL mate.....from a Jock!
Got to say you're bang on the mark though.

Sadly I think there's been a genuine decline in the standards of both sausage rolls and pigs in blankets.

Most sausage rolls seems quite bland and tasteless nowadays.
I'd make my own but I'm afraid my few attempts at pastry have been nothing short of abysmal.
Greggs seem best of the more commonly available.

The little sausages used in pigs in blankets tend to be relatively tasteless too and I can't find any of the tasty one's that I like so that I could make my own.

There are two well known butchers in my town that make the best pork pies you could ever imagine.
This nearly makes up for the general alround fall in standards of these British delights.

heheh technically when I'm no pronouncing the English words correctly its Scots English and when not at all Scots and then on occasion Gaelic
hahaha

im cheating

I never knew I know more than one language
well according to some its just English with scots words thrown in , but you can argue English is just scots with English words thrown in hahaha.

Once again this only highlights your favourite thing about the Union, is that there is more that unites us than we first imagine .

All of our words are shared to make our languages diverse and colourful

The numerous variations in accents and colloquialisms on these islands are great and indeed so colourful.

Language is constantly changing and developing and reflects the ever changing society we live in.
That is as it should be.....but we need to protect it from the intrusion of the American gangsta babble that seems so prevalent amongst youngsters everywhere. It sounds horrible and so alien.

The second most annoying language development is 'estuary'.
A mate of mine generally known as Cockney Stu, even though he comes from Essex and has only visited London a handful of times, gradually lapses in to the most appalling estuary accent the more he drinks.
It is impossible to understand a word he says, far more unintelligible than any Glaswegian I've ever met.
I recently met his Dad, a genuine Eastender who moved out to the suburbs and then Essex.
It is much easier to understand him than it is my mate.

Anyway, we digress.

anyway i thought americans called sausage rolls "PUFF DOGS"

I dont know what they can do , I mean the french invented fries , which you so kindly renamed "freedom fries"

and then now you are renaming another culinary french delight

the sausage roll

this cannot go on !

even though I dont believe in that appropriation nonsense , surely there must be a line drawn for such bastions as the sausage roll ?

Ye cannae go changing the name of hings like that , its a institution

What do you expect from a country whose propaganda and information division, Holywood, blatantly re-writes history constantly in order to portray the USA as the worlds saviour and to indoctrinate them in the belief of their divine global manifest destiny.

Oh, and come on man, saying the sausage roll is French is like saying the parmo comes from Italy!
Or Chicken Tikka Masala actually originated in India!!

Its inspiration or even origins maybe French.....but its distinctively British by nature now and part of our heritage, we can't just pass it off as someone else's.....that's nearly as bad a crime as renaming or rebranding it!
