How should I Store the Pigs in a Blanket?

Store them in airtight containers or sealable bags and place them in the refrigerator once they’ve cooled down.

Leftover Pigs in a Blanket should be refrigerated within two hours after they have been cooked and not allowed to sit out longer than one hour.

Additionally, eat them within 2-3 days of refrigeration for optimal safety and quality. If you plan on storing them for more than 3 days, pop them in the freezer; however, keep in mind that freezing does not ensure maintaining their original quality or texture.
