Hot Dogs in a Blanket

Hot dogs can be a delicious treat all year round and  when cold weather comes and you don’t feel like grilling outside, try wrapping them in flaky puff pastry.  It’s the meal size version of pigs in a blanket but you have to go to your butcher and get their hand-made dogs that are a world apart from what you would find in a supermarket.

Ingredients 

  • 6 butcher made hot dogs
  • 2 packages of puff pastry, defrosted in the refrigerator 
  • 1 egg

Making It

  • Turn the oven to 400 degrees
  • Line a banking sheet with parchment paper
  • Beat the egg and a half teaspoon of water
  • Roll the pastry dough out with a rolling pin, measure the strips of dough and cut so they will cover 80% of the dog and fit around with and extra half inch
  • Roll the dough around the dog and brush the overlap with the egg wash, then prick the dough through to the dog with a fork 5-6 times
  • Brush the entire hot dog with the egg wash and back for 8 minutes and flip the dog and cook another 8-10 minutes
