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.
- 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.
- Use mini cocktail franks, mini wieners or lil smokies sausages.
- I like to use white and black sesame seeds because it looks better. Feel free to do it your way.
