Recipe Tips

  • Add a little bit of cheese in with the hot dog. This addition of cheese will result in some amazing cheesy pigs in a blanket.
  • Puff pastry doesn’t reheat very well. So, if you do want to reheat these do it in an oven for the best results. However, reheating in the oven may cause them to dry out, so it’s best to try not to have any leftovers.
  • You can use the hot dogs to measure how wide to make the puff pastry strips. I aim to have the strips about 3/4 of the length of the hot dog.
  • Fresh or frozen puff pastry will work perfectly in this recipe. Fresh puff pastry will likely work out better, but it is very hard to make.
