Pigs in a Blanket (Chicago Inspired)
Makes 32 pieces
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp water
- 1 package puff pastry sheets thawed and cut into long triangles (see directions below)*
- 12 oz mini all beef hot dogs
- 12 oz sport peppers drained and patted dry with paper towels**
- Celery seed for sprinkling
- Poppy seeds for sprinkling
- ¼ cup dijon mustard
- 3 Tbsp mayo
- 2 Tbsp sweet relish
- Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper.
- Whisk egg and water together until homogeneous for an egg wash. Set aside.
- Place a hot dog and a sport pepper at the base of a triangle of dough. Roll up snugly but not super super tight.***
- Place on the prepared sheet tray seam side down. Repeat with all the dough.
- Egg wash the pastry of each and sprinkle with a touch of celery salt (the celery salt is strong!) and poppyseeds.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden. It’s possible that the sport pepper can kinda pop out a little from the pastry as it bakes, but not to worry! Just pop them back in place right when they come out of the oven.
- While they bake, prepare the sauce. Mix everything for the sauce together in a small bowl until combined.
- Serve hotdogs warm from the oven with the dipping sauce on the side.
*I tested this with one package of Pepperidge Farm puff pastry and one of Dufour. For the Pepperidge Farm: I used both sheets in the package. I cut each sheet into four, then into eighths. Then I cut each eighth diagonally to make two triangles, to get 16 pieces from each sheet (total of 32). For the Dufour: I cut the dough into quarters, then in eighths. Then I took each eighth and cut it diagonally to make two triangles. Then I cut each triangle in two, to make four triangles from each eighth. There is only one sheet in a Dufour package but you still get 32 pieces because it is bigger than the Pepperidge Farm sheets. **These can easily be found on amazon or other online retailers! You can also sub with piparra peppers. ***Rolling them up super super tight is what causes the sport pepper to sometimes pop out. Just roll them up gently and snugly (you also don’t want them loose). But like I mentioned, if one pops out it really is no biggie 🙂
