A childhood favorite gets a gourmet upgrade with a family-friendly recipe for Everything Puff Pastry Pigs In a Blanket.
Few childhood snacks bring about such nostalgia as good ol’ pigs in a blanket. Little Smokies cocktail wieners, buttery crescent roll dough and all the ketchup my 6-year-old self could desire.
It’s safe to say not many things have changed in the Kelly’s Snack Cravings department over the past 27 years…
I find myself more in love with this quick-fix snack than ever. And now that I have two (!) little ones of my own, I am all about the creative but fuss-free snacks.
This elevated take on the traditional pigs in a blanket stars your choice of hot dogs tucked into puff pastry spirals. But the deliciousness doesn’t end there!
A quick eggwash and a hearty “everything” seasoning shower later, and your snack/gameday/party lineup just reached a whole new level. Keep it classic with ketchup for dipping, or go the extra gourmet mile with a range of mustards. And speaking of mustard … this same technique would be great on bratwurst. Simply wrap, brush, sprinkle and bake!

These were delicious! Will make again and again.
I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Kittie!
My pastry did not puff up. The heat needs to be 425 for at least 20 minutes.
Hi Nikko – I’ve never experienced that issue before. What brand of puff pastry did you use?
Do you bake longer if using brats? Thanks…
I’ve never tried that so I’m not sure!
Great recipe. Thank you. :)
You are so welcome, Gary! I’m thrilled you enjoyed it!
My family loves this recipe! It’s quick, easy and my kids love helping to wrap the hot dogs.
I’m thrilled to read this, Amy!
