7 Different Ways to Blanket Your Pigs From Chef David Burke Slideshow

To create mini desserts based off the classic appetizer, use phyllo dough spread with Nutella and wrap it around bananas. Just use this basic recipe for pigs in a blanket as your starting point for instruction, and follow the baking directions on the back of the phyllo dough's box.
For a vegetarian version of the classic treat, wrap jarred artichoke hearts in puff pastry instead. They’re the perfect, meaty filling inside the dough and they’ll become nice and crisp after baking. Make sure to pat your hearts really dry before assembling.
Just like mini hot dogs, asparagus spears have the perfect of crunch to be wrapped up. Instead of spreading Dijon, sprinkle a little bit of your favorite cheese shredded instead for an additional flavor.
