Pigs in a Blanket

Pigs in a Blanket

Serves 6

This kid-friendly recipe is quite simple to make. Encourage kiddos to do the rolling and to sprinkle the assembled pigs in a blanket with poppy seeds.

  • 12 ounces frozen pizza dough, defrosted but cold, cut into 6 pieces
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 6 pork hotdogs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds (optional)

Roll each piece of dough into a 3- x 4-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Spread 1 teaspoon of the mustard on each piece of rolled dough. Place a hotdog on the short side of the rectangle and roll up. Repeat with the remaining dough and hotdogs. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm spot until doubled in bulk, about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Mix the egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water to make an egg-wash. Brush the egg-wash on the dough and sprinkle with poppy seeds, if using. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until dough is golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and serve.
