Storage and Freezing Instructions:

Store any leftover pigs in a blanket in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap in the fridge for three to four days.

Use a freezer safe container to store baked leftovers in the freezer for one to two months. 

Thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating.

Unbaked pigs in a blanket can be frozen for up to three months. Place the assembled pigs in a blanket in a single layer in the freezer on a parchment-lined tray until firm. Once the pigs are solid, transfer them to a freezer bag or airtight container for storage. 

The pigs in a blanket can be baked from frozen, but you will need to add a few minutes to the baking time.
