Tips for easy pigs in a blanket recipe
- To prevent these rolls from sticking to the pan, line pan with parchment paper.
- You can use either puff pastry or crescent roll dough. I have used the Pillsbury crescent rolls and they work great. I have also used Pepperidge Farm puffs without any issues.
- To make these with cheese, add some mozzarella or cheddar cheese inside before rolling.
- I coat these appetizers in everything bagel seasoning blend (easily found on at Trader Joe’s or Amazon) but that’s optional and can easily be omitted.
- Instead of baking, you can deep fry them until golden brown. You can also use an Air Fryer.

- Tastes best when served fresh but leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 24 hours. However, they will loose their crispy texture when reheated.

do you cook the franks before adding the puff pastry?
No, you don’t have to cook them beforehand since they are already pre-cooked.
Can you freeze these before baking? And can you cook them at the same temperature straight out of the freezer and for how long?
I haven’t frozen them before but I have prepped them a day in advance and kept in the fridge until ready to bake and serve the next day.
