Have you ever wondered how many ways you can make Pigs in Blankets? Wonder no more – I am presenting to you AirFried, Deep Fried and Oven Baked Pigs in the Blankets.
100 gr dough (puff pastry sheets would work best)
18 cocktail sausages
1 tbsp sea salt for seasoning
- Roll the dough into a rectangular sheet and cut into strips
- Roll each sausage into a dough strip, starting from one tip to other
- Beat the egg into a ball and brush the pigs with an egg wash
- Cook in preheated Airfryer / Oven for 12 minutes at 200 C / 400 F
- Alternatively, deep fry in oil until the color of the pigs is golden brown
- Once out, sprinkle with the sea salt and serve with honey mustard sauce
- Honey mustard is a traditional dipping for Pigs in Blankets
- The deep fried pigs in blankets were soaked in oil hence the oil flavor overpowered the sausage and pastry flavors
The cocktail sausages that I used for this AirFried Pigs in Blankets recipe are from Meica. I am sure you can find many other options in your store! Alternatively (not recommending, but can be done in desperate times) take a hot dog sausage and cut into 4 small pieces.
