Senior’s pigs

Post by Stevenloan » Sat Jan 25, 2020 6:01 am

A: Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a community event in Claremont, N.H.
B: So nice to be here with all you in Clearwater, California. I'll have the senior's pigs in a blanket and a bottle of Jack please.

- Hi everyone! In a video, Joe Biden and many old people attend the event. What does “I'll have the senior's pigs in a blanket” mean in this situation?

Thanks a lot!

A lot of American restaurants have a Senior Menu - smaller servings, smaller price. The pigs in a blanket are sausages wrapped in pancakes. Which sounds really good at the moment - haven't had breakfast yet. :D

In the UK pigs in blankets are small sausages wrapped in bacon.
This is a link to Wikipedia which explains the term well.

I've never had them in a pancake blanket. Here they are usually wrapped in a puffed pastry or a croissant dough. Pillsbury crescent rolls work great. My mom used pancake batter mixed with a bit of cornmeal to make corn-dogs.

I used to make them with biscuit dough, but I was convinced I had seen them in pancakes at restaurants like IHOP. Obviously, my memory is going! :shock:
