When does Pigs in a Blanket expire?
Like many prepared foods, refrigerated, unopened pigs in a blanket can last for around 1 week. However, once it's opened, the lifespan drops to about 3-4 days. If you've made your own at home, it's safe to keep them in the fridge for 3-4 days as well. If you've stored them in the freezer, they can last about 1-2 months.
How do you tell if Pigs in a Blanket is bad?
Bad pigs in a blanket will have a sour smell and could sport mold or discolorations. Always trust your senses! If the smell or appearance seem off, it's best to toss them out. Additionally, the texture might change, becoming slimy or sticky, which is also a strong sign that they've gone bad.
Tips for storing Pigs in a Blanket to extend shelf life
• Store your pigs in a blanket in airtight containers or bags to keep them fresh.
• Although freezing can slightly change the texture, it might be the best option if you have leftovers and aren't planning to consume them soon.
• For the best quality, reheat your food at the same temperature it was cooked. Avoid thawing your pigs in a blanket at room temperature; instead, move them from the freezer to the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
• Remember to cool your food before placing it in the fridge or freezer to avoid getting condensed water on the inside of your container, which can lead to faster bacterial growth.
