Super Bowl Snacks: Hogs in a Blanket


Give me puff pastry and the world is mine.

I always have frozen puff pastry in the freezer and good sausage on hand.

This is the easiest Super Bowl appetizer of all time.

Let's call them "hogs" in a blanket, instead of pigs in a blanket!

I served these for New Year's Eve, but will be making them again for Sunday's game.

Here's how:

Roll out some defrosted puff pastry and wrap around good quality Italian sausage links.
Seal tight.

Slice into 1" slices and place in the wells of a mini muffin tin (no need to grease the tin, the buttery puff pastry never sticks).

Bake at 375F for 20 minutes until pastry is brown.
The sausage will be fully cooked, not to worry.

Serve w/ honey mustard and watch them disappear.


Who wouldn't love these?

These are a great idea! I despise pigs in a blanket but swapping out a mini hot dog for good Italian sausage is a great idea. May try these out for our party.

At xmas this year, my mom put out little Nathan's pigs-in-the-blanket for the 6 teenagers. I absentmindedly, uncharacteristically, popped one into my mouth - the BEST thing I ate the whole day. Can't argue with highly spiced pork products wrapped in buttery refined carbs. Keep my dip straight savory mustard, please!

how many sheets of pastry do you use for each sausage?

Not crazy about pigs in the blanket, but this - this is another whole animal. Bring on the sausage, bring on the puff pastry.
