  • Roll out your Pastry dough with some flour into a large rectangle. The dough should be about 1/8 of an inch thick or 3-4 mm. Make sure you have rolled out the dough evenly on all sides.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit or 180 Celsius.
  • Cut off the edges if uneven. Slice your dough lengthwise and crosswise to create squares (watch video). The squares should be the size of your sausage.
  • Scramble the egg in a bowl. this will be your simple egg wash and you will use it to seal the edges as well so that the pastry doesn't open up during the baking process.
  • Next, with a pastry brush, brush the egg wash on one side of each square. This is where you will seal it afterward.
  • Place on each square a sausage. Take the pastry sausage bundle into your hand and wrap the pastry over the sausage. Seal it on the edge where the egg wash is. It will stick.
  • Repeat the process to make mini pigs in a blanket.
  • Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place all the pigs in a blanket next to each other with some distance because they will puff during the baking process.
  • With your brush spread the egg wash over each sausage roll.
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds over the pigs in a blanket.
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.
  • Let them cool a bit. Serve warm with a variety of dipping sauces.



  1. Use a roll of Puff Pastry or Crescent pastry, but you can also use pizza or pie dough. Just keep in mind that puff and crescent pastry will puff a lot, which I think is great.
  2. Use mini cocktail franks, mini wieners or lil smokies sausages.
  3. I like to use white and black sesame seeds because it looks better. Feel free to do it your way.
  4. One Pig in a blanket = 1 serving (in the nutritioun info)
