This. Recipe. Is. Insane. And. Very. Easy.
Yes, I am the person who goes out of their way to become best friends with the man holding the tray of pigs in a blanket at a party. I am the girl who gets PISSED when there isn't any ketchup and only mustard (more stories about my passion for ketchup to come).
While I love the concept of little weenies as appetizers, I usually eat the equivalent of a full-sized hot dog. So, I decided it would be a great idea to turn my favorite cocktail-sized treat into one for adults (which means a large version, lol).
These dogs have the added addition of everything bagel seasoning which really elevates the dogs by giving them a garlic and onion flavor with a sesame and poppyseed crunch...and it looks pretty great too :).
What's great about this recipe is it is really easy to make because most of the ingredients are store-bought, with the exception of the everything bagel seasoning, which you can make here, or buy at Trader Joes or Williams Sonoma.
jumbo pigs in a blanket with everything bagel seasoning
- all beef hot dogs, uncured
- everything bagel seasoning
- 1 egg + 1 T water
Preheat your oven to 375°F and then defrost your puffy pastry according to the instructions.
Combine all of the ingredients in your everything bagel seasoning into a bowl.
Slice your puff pastry horizontally into thin strips.
Scramble 1 egg and add a teaspoon of water.
Then, take your hot dogs and pat them dry. I like to use the all beef kosher uncured hot dogs because they don't contain any nitrates. Starting at the top of each dog, take your puff pastry and wrap it around the dog until you get to the bottom. Once you reach the bottom, pinch the puff pasty so it's secure around the dog. Then place the dogs on parchment lined baking sheets.
Take a pastry brush and brush the top of the dogs with egg wash (egg wash will allow the dogs to have a nice shiny texture and it acts a glue for the everything bagel seasoning).
Top the dogs with your everything bagel seasoning and flakey sea salt (I like to use Maldon sea salt).
Bake your dogs according to the instructions on the puff pastry packet. Serve them with your choice of condiment and enjoy!
