Musgo, Musgo, M-U-S-G-O

Sorry flashing back to high school cheerleading there (Let’s Go, Let’s Go, L-E-T-S-G-O). Tonight we’re eating what my mom calls musgo. In other words, everything Must Go! We’re still pretty full-up from the weekend and we have a fridge full of leftovers. So while we were going to begin our new country tonight, selected by Mr. N, we’ve decided to hold-off until we finish up the musgo.

In the meantime, we’ll share one of the recipes from our “barn raising” that was a favorite for Mr. N and Miss A. Our original plan was to use a bunch of little smokies in an Amish breakfast casserole, but since we didn’t have much success with Amish recipes this weekend, we decided to look for other options. We found an interesting recipe on Hot Dog City that put an Asian twist on an American favorite. These Pigs in a Blanket Asian Style were definitely the biggest hit with the kids yesterday. We started with these ingredients:

We marinated the smokies in a sealable bag with the teriyaki baste in the refrigerator for a few hours. We then poured them out into a bowl and began wrapping them in wontons. Mr. N was already excited about this recipe and couldn’t wait to help.

He was actually quite the little piggy swaddler.

Once we got all the smokies wrapped in the wontons we placed them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Next we brushed the smokies with the remaining teriyaki baste.

The smokies were then placed in the oven at 400F and baked for 12 minutes.

We served the smokies with sweet and sour and hoisin sauce. Mr. N popped these little things like candy, and even Miss A was happy to eat some hot dogs. I’m a big fan of pigs in a blanket, have been since I was a kid, and I really enjoyed the twist on this classic recipe. Dad also liked them, especially since they seemed lighter than the standard version. All-in-all, this one was a winner and we’ll definitely make it again.

Now it’s time to go finish up my favorite musgo – the dessert! Yum!

  1. You have great recipes on your site. I tried something similar to pigs in a blanket in Central Asia, I am guessing they learnt from the US

  2. MUSGO – Must go… that is awesome!! I will use that from now on!

    I love snacking on those… I would have inhaled them. :)

      I remember the first time my mom said we were having Musgo for dinner. I thought it was a new recipe. LOL! These little buggers were sooo good – and way too easy!

  3. Eftychia says:

    What a cute boy! I kids usually help me in the kitchen as well, and believe it or not we prepare together the same snack very often :-)

    Did you know I only learned what “pigs in a blanket” meant, perhaps a couple of years ago?

    Amazing what a non-native speaker goes through in this country! ;-)

    MUSGO! I love it, how fun! I get excited when my frig is full of “products” that I can recreate meals with! BTW, I could use a little helper like you have in the kitchen!

    What a clever twist on the typical pigs in a blanket recipe. I love the sweet and salty combo. Also, I know exactly which cheer you’re referring to (I was actually saying it in my head as I read it)–yes, ex-cheerleader as well!

    • ChefMom says:

      Sweet and salty gets me every time. It’s the best combo there is! And it’s crazy how often that cheer pops in my head. Everytime I tell the kids, “Let’s go,” I break out into it either in my head or out loud. LOL!

  7. Erin and Molly Reeder says:

    Now those look like something I can even handle…and anything involving a hot dog would go over well here!

  8. OK, these look too good to be pigs in the blanket. Go Razorbacks! Ha, kidding. I do like the looks of that sauce.

    • ChefMom says:

      LOL! I can’t tell you the number of times this cheer pops in my head. I don’t remember that many others, but this one…it’s like a bad stong perpetually stuck in your head.

  9. Jessica says:

    Oh how cute and the best appetizer EVER in my family’s book! love your own spin on them!

    • ChefMom says:

      I agree! At Christmas my family, rather than making a big meal, always made a bunch of appetizers and that’s all we ate all day. It was great! Pigs in a blanket were a staple that day and one of the dishes I most looked forward to each year!

  10. Aarthi says:

    This looks yummy….you have a lovely blog…

  11. Charles says:

    “Mr. N popped these little things like candy”

    That would totally be me. They look great – you’d have to watch me if I’d been there. I would have distracted you and made you look out of the window or something and then devoured the whole tray!

    • ChefMom says:

      LOL. You and Mr. N would get along great! Although he didn’t even resort to diverting my attention. He just pulled up a chair right next to the platter and went to town! :)

  12. My kids love pigs in a blanket. I’ll have to try it with teriyaki sauce and the glaze dip sounds good too, though I think my oldest would eat it. My four year old will stick to the usual, ketchup!
    I’ll make this version but use pretzel dough to wrap the hot dogs in, they are so delish! Looking forward to your next food adventure!

  13. What a fun recipe for the whole family and who doesn’t like a little crispy coated smoked sausage with a dipping sauce.

    I am paying the love forward and awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award and if you like, you can pay it forward too. :-) Mandy

  14. Pigs in a blanket are my favorite! And how cute is Mr. N making sure everything was looking perfect. And girl I must tell you.. that Teriyaki baste and glaze got me so hooked on this recipe.. that you didn’t even have to say a word LOL. Winner, Winner, Hotdog Dinner :)

    • ChefMom says:

      LOL! Love the cheer. ;) These were really good. I don’t know if they are better than regular pigs in a blanket in my book, but they’re right up there – and a nice variation. Now I want more…is it lunchtime yet?!

  15. Laura says:

    Mmm, I can’t wait to try these. I think I’m going to make them for the college kids who come over on Thursday nights. They’re big fans of pigs in a blanket but these sound even better!

    • ChefMom says:

      In the original recipe they sprinkled white and dark sesame seeds over the hot dogs before baking. My kiddos aren’t big fans of sesame seeds, so I left them off. But they might make for a nice crunchy texture. :)
