Chicago-Style Pigs in a Blanket Recipe

Chicago-Style Pigs in a Blanket Recipe

"This Chicago-Style Pigs in a Blanket Recipe consists of wrapping the mini hot dog in puff pastry that had a sliver of pickle, a dab of yellow mustard, and a shake of celery salt on the inside. On the exterior, I brush the pastry with egg wash and sprinkle on poppy seeds similar to the original offering." — Paul Sidoriak, Grilling Montana

Ingredients

  • 24 mini hot dogs
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 12 dill pickle chips
  • 1 celery salt
  • 1 poppy seeds
  • 1 egg, mixed thoroughly with 1 tablespoon of water

Directions

Preheat oven or grill to 375°F.
 
Allow puff pastry to warm at room temperature until just malleable, but still very cold.  Place puff pastry sheet on a dry cutting board.
 
Cut puff pastry into 24 rectangles about 2" long and 1" wide.  Using a ruler and pizza cutter makes the pastry cutting much easier.
 
Lightly sprinkle celery salt over all pastry rectangles.  Cut pickle chips into slivers and put about half a pickle down on each pastry rectangle.
 
Place mini hot dog down on pastry rectangle and pickle making a lowercase "T" shape and wrap around the middle of the hotdog making a ring, or blanket.
 
Transfer mini hot dogs wrapped in pastry with pickle to a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick food release.
 
Paint all exposed pastry with egg and water mixture to coat and then sprinkle with poppy seeds.  
 
Bake for 15 min or until puff pastry becomes golden brown.  Serve while hot with mustard for dipping.
