Every Easter we celebrate by eating a nice ham dinner with family. Before the Ham and all the sides come out we do have a early appetizer brunch. One dish always on the table is Pigs In A Blanket. These are fun to make with kids and taste great. Be sure to check back next week for my Bacon Water Chestnut Recipe.
PIGS IN A BLANKET
YOU WILL NEED:
I box puffed pastry sheets, (be sure you get sheets not cups)
2 packages mini wieners, or mini sausages (Hillshire Farms carries both, plus cheese filled, use what you like or mix one of each to make 2 packages)
Optional: toasted sesame seeds and/or poppy seeds
Defrost the pastry sheets, leave out on counter check after 1 hour, may take longer due to temp in house.
When defrosted open pack & cut the 2 sheets into 3 where it is folded, you will now have 6 sheets, now count the mini wieners or sausages and figure out how many puff pastry strips you need to cut. Cut into the strips.
Wrap the wieners in pastry and place on a foil lined cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. You may choose to use 2 sheets, you want to leave space in between the wieners so they have room for pastry to puff.
OPTIONAL: once all the pastry wrapped sausages are on the sheet, spray lightly with cooking spray and add sesame seeds and poppy seeds.
Bake per directions on your puff sheets, I usually do 400 degrees 15 minutes, check them for golden brown & add 5 minutes to finish. But be sure to check bottom & top for golden brown. Remove from oven, place on a serving dish and serve warm.
You can serve with BBQ sauce, Ketchup, Mustard or you favorite hotdog condiments.
