I really had no preference who won the Superbowl, I was just excited for all the food!! Last night, Stud and I went over to Noe and Olga's house for a dinner of delicious snacks and to watch the game. Olga has a complete recap of smorgasbord of snacks. My contribution was homemade pigs-in-a-blanket! I figured hot dogs + puff paste was a guaranteed success!
Pigs-in-a-Blanket (makes 24)
8 hot dogs
1 package of puff pastry
2-3 T. dijon mustard
Thaw the puff pastry in the refrigerator overnight and cut the hot dogs into thirds. Cut each puff pastry sheet into six strips, each should be 1 1/2 in. wide and then but in half the other way so you have 12 equal strips. Spread some mustard over each strip and roll a piece of hot dog in the strip and place on a cookie sheet seam side down. Repeat with the remaining 11 strips, and then with the second sheet of puff pastry. Whisk the egg with some water in a small bowl and using a pastry brush, brush over the top of each piggie and if you have them, sprinkle with poppyseeds. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 22-25 minutes. And then enjoy, they are best right out of the oven while they are warm and flaky.
These we so easy and I assembled them at home and baked them over at the party so they would fresh and hot. And I had a ton of Hebrew National hot dogs in my freezer, so all I needed was the puff pastry. These will be made again...and probably again. I mean, who doesn't love pigs-in-a-blanket???
