  • (Pigs🌭️)
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed in refrigerator overnight
  • 1 package (approximately 30-35) miniature smokie-style hot dogs
  • 4 ounces herbed goat cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • sesame seeds for optional garnish
  • (Dipping🥣)
  • 3/4 cup barbeque sauce
  • 1/4 cup grape jam


Step 1: Prepare the pigs in a blanket.

Place thawed puff pastry (make sure it's all butter because it'll be more delicious!😋) on a lightly floured surface. Roll just enough to smooth out creases in pastry.

Step 2: 

Using a cutting wheel, cut the sheet into 30 pieces, 3 X 10.

Step 3: 

Working with one piece of pastry at a time, place a cheese-filled or plain smokie at one end and roll the pastry up. Pinch seam shut and place seam side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Continue spacing the prepared pieces two inches apart.

* These can be filled with goat cheese for an optional upscale take on the classic or left plain. If using cheese, make a small cut (not all the way through) down the center of a smokie and fill with a small amount of cheese.

Step 4:  

Once completed, these can be refrigerated, covered with plastic wrap, for up to one day, which makes them perfect for pre-party planning. Otherwise, chill for 30 minutes before proceeding.

Step 5: 

Before baking, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Step 6: 

Place in preheated 425-degree oven for 25-30 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.

Step 7: Prepare the dipping sauce.

An easy way to make this savory, sweet dipping sauce.

Put some of your favorite barbecue sauce, along with some jam. 


Mix them together and heat it in the microwave until it is hot.

Now, these pigs in a blanket are ready to serve. 😊
