October is a curious time at Costco. Christmas trees greet you at the front door while haunting Halloween costumes command the center aisles, and there are still a few lingering beach chairs tucked in the back. While I may fall prey to adding both a pair of banjo-playing skeletons and holiday ribbon to my cart, what I’m really there for this month is in the freezer section.

This month I’m stocking up on an item that I can serve for weeknight dinners or as an appropriately autumnal appetizer. Would you be surprised to know that my pick for this month’s best Costco bulk buy are frozen pigs in a blanket? Allow me to tell you why they’re a must-add to your cart.

What’s So Great About Cuisine Adventures Everything Franks in a Blanket?

The pigs in a blanket that Costco carries are much more than just any ol’ pastry-wrapped pup. These two-bite appetizers are made from juicy miniature pork sausages wrapped in a crispy everything bagel-seasoned puff pastry blanket. We may have passed the peak of the everything bagel trend, but products like these franks in a blanket have stuck around, thanks to that salty, savory mixture of garlic, sesame, and poppy seed.

What’s the Best Way to Use Cuisine Adventures Everything Franks in a Blanket?

October can be just as busy as November or December when preparing for the upcoming holidays, and while making pigs in a blanket at home is not a difficult task, it still takes extra time that many people do not have. This 2.2-pound box contains up to 50 miniature pigs in a blanket — just enough for popping in the oven or air fryer on a busy weeknight or filling a platter for an Oktoberfest party or football-watching event.

With just a few left in the box, I’ll add them to lunch boxes for a reprieve from ham and cheese sandwiches. Don’t forget that you still have to plan dinner before trick-or-treating; these pastry piggies have you covered. If you are answering the door on Halloween instead of wrangling miniature ghouls, add a pile of the Everything Franks in a Blanket to a seasonal snack platter. Now that I think of it, I’d better grab more than one box this month.
