Pigs in a blanket is just a fancy name for hot dogs wrapped in dough. It could be any type of dough, such as phyllo, bread dough, a tortilla wrap, and in this case two ingredient dough. If you haven’t heard of two ingredient dough by now you are definitely missing out! (see recipe below) The dough is sticky and can be hard to work with, but after you’ve messed around with it for a couple of times it does get easier. Try sticking the dough in the fridge for a couple hours before you start working with it. Much, much, easier to work with after that! After you get the hang of the dough, the possibilities are endless.
These crowd pleasing little appetizers start off with dough. (of course!) Once you have that all together, roll each piece of dough out into 4 equal pieces. Then place a hot dog in the middle and wrap the dog up in it’s little blanket. Brush some egg wash on top of the dough so that it turns a nice golden brown color in the oven. Sprinkle them with some Everything but the Bagel seasoning and bake for 15 minutes in the oven at 400 degrees. Take them out and cut them into 6 equal pieces.
Serve these with some mustard or ketchup and enjoy!
