What you need for this Pigs in a Blanket recipe
Sausages: I use plant-based sausages and these give a wonderful meaty, hearty texture. You can use hot dogs or something spicy. Everything you like is great.
Croissant dough: it’s really practical. I don’t need to make my own dough. It comes in a tube and I have it ready whenever I want. If you can’t find any, most supermarkets have them, use puff pastry or even cookie dough.
Dairy-free butter: Instead of egg wash, I use dairy-free butter and let me tell you something so delicious. It really makes everything taste great and the buttery flavors that croissant dough is known for really shine through the result. Alternatively, you can use oats or any milk of your choice, but the result will be less buttery.
How to Make Pigs in a Blanket
Preheat the oven to 390F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Unroll the croissant dough, take it out of the package and cut it into triangles.
Roll the dough around the sausages and wrap them. How many you make depends on their size. I make bigger ones so I get about eight. Place everything on your prepared baking sheet.
Brush the top with melted butter and finish with a good pinch of salt.
Cook the porks covered for about 15 minutes.
Tips and tricks
These pigs in a blanket are delicious even cold and will keep for about 4 days.
To reheat: preheat oven to 360F and bake for 4 minutes. Another option is microwaving, but be aware that this will affect the texture a bit, but still taste nice.
What to serve with pigs in the blanket
As you know, I like it to be very simple: mustard, ketchup, BBQ sauce or Ranch Dip.
To prepare in advance: Wrap the pigs in the blanket in croissant dough, put them in a container and store them in the refrigerator. I would make the butter topping just before baking. Otherwise the butter will harden.
