Pigs in Blankets

Preparation : 15 mins ·Cooking : 13 minsServes 4



Cocktail sausages or mini hot dogs
Crescent roll dough (store-bought)
Dijon mustard (optional, for dipping)
1 egg (for egg wash)
Sesame seeds or poppy seeds (optional, for topping)


Step 1

Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to the temperature recommended on the crescent roll dough package. Typically, it's around 190°C (375°F).

Step 2

Prepare the Dough: Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate it into triangles along the perforated lines. If desired, you can also use puff pastry or biscuit dough for a variation in flavour and texture.

Step 3

Cut and Wrap: Cut the triangles into smaller strips. Each strip should be wide enough to wrap around a cocktail sausage or mini hot dog. Place a sausage at the wide end of each strip and roll it up, ensuring the dough slightly overlaps as you go. Repeat this for all the sausages.

Step 4

Egg Wash: In a small bowl, beat an egg. Brush the egg wash over the wrapped sausages. This will give them a golden brown and shiny finish when baked. If desired, sprinkle sesame seeds or poppy seeds on top for extra flavor and texture.

Step 5

Bake: Place the wrapped sausages on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Arrange them with the seam side down. Bake in the preheated oven according to the crescent roll dough package instructions, typically for about 12-15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and crispy.

Step 6

Serve: Once the pigs in blankets are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Serve them with Dijon mustard for dipping, if you like.

Step 7

Enjoy: These delightful pigs in blankets are best served warm and enjoyed as appetisers, snacks, or party treats!
