Anyone looking to make healthier choices by cutting out processed meat from their diet don’t have to miss out on a classic dish — plant-based pigs in a blanket are possible.

Opting for a vegan version of this classic dish saves farmed animals. If you love dogs, pigs are basically pink dogs anyway, and some may deem it fitting to cook up a vegan meaty feast, instead of a processed pig.

2. Meet “Snuggy Bunnies”

“I don’t have to tell you that these are the cutest things in the world! Darling little roasted carrots in puff pastry, because bunnies love carrots and real pigs deserve real blankets,” writes author Isa Chandra Moskowitz. “They’re sprinkled with a little paprika for smokiness, but the flavors are kept simple, relying more on the gentle roasting of the carrot, which sweetens a bit as it cooks.” These are hearty yet healthier than processed meat.

4. Carrots In a Blanket

Recipe publisher Sandra says, “I wish pigs in a blanket were really cute pigs in a warm blanket not sausages made out of actual pigs. And who needs sausages anyway when you have delicious, juicy and vibrant carrots?” Hence, the carrot and dill pig in a blanket was created! Epicurean Vegan says, “These are great served with ketchup, horseradish, mustard…you name it. Enjoy!”

5. Vegan Cheesy Bacon Pigs in Blanket

Michael Suchman from VeganMos says: “You can make them large for a meal or small for appetizers.  As an added treat, I’m giving you two recipes for the price of one!  For the large size, add bacon and cheese. It is a little difficult to add them if you’re making them appetizer sized.  Yes, these contain a lot of processed foods, but these are treats for special occasions, like National Pig in a Blanket Day.” Treat yourself, it is the right day for it, after all.
