Well, what is Pig in a Blanket? It a simple baked hot dogpuff pastry wrap. And here you go I have already shared the recipe. The list of ingredients is pretty basic and common: puff pastry sheets and hot dogs. To add some mouthwatering color to the baked goods we will smear the top of the pastry with whisked egg and sprinkle sesame seeds for an extra dose of flavorful crunch.

I always have a spear sheet of puff pastry in my freezer for recipes like this. However, if you have a perfect recipe for homemade puff pastry then you can use it instead. I, unfortunately, have never tried to make it at home and store-bought option is just perfect for me.
