What did pigs in blankets used to be called?

This dish shows up slightly earlier in UK cook(ery) books with the name it still has: angels on horseback.

Are pigs in a blanket the same as kolaches?
Yes, Czech settlers are believed to have created kolaches after they moved to Texas. But kolaches are pastries, most often filled with fruity concoctions, not the pigs in blankets pictured by BuzzFeed. If you want a “meat kolache,” that’s a klobasniki, not a hot dog rolled in croissant dough.
Why do they call hot dogs pigs in a blanket?

Can you freeze pigs in a blanket after baking?

How do you keep pigs in a blanket warm for a party?
How do you keep pigs in a blanket warm for a party? You can either keep them in a low-heat oven (around 225 F degrees), and just pull out one plate-full at a time, or you can keep them warm in a slow cooker. The slow cooker method may make them a bit soggy, but it’s less hands-on than the oven method.
