Pigs in blankets
A classic family snack that we never get tired of eating. They look great and taste even better. I’m always surprised at how quickly they get eaten, regardless of how many I make.
Preparation isn’t complicated. I’ve explained all the steps in photos to help you. A great recipe that your family will really enjoy!
Makes 48 pieces
300 grams flour (2 cups + 2 Tbsp)
1/2 Tbsp dry yeast / 1/3 packet of fresh yeast
1/4 cup canola oil
160 ml warm water (3/4 cup minus 1 Tbsp)
3/4 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
250 grams hot dogs
1 egg, beaten
1. Place the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a mixer, add the oil and water and mix on low speed until you get a soft smooth dough. Let rise for an hour or longer, or until the dough doubles in size.
2. Divide the dough into three parts and roll each part out into 22 cm diameter circles. Divide each circle into 16 triangles, like you would slice a pizza.
3. Cut the hot dogs in half, and then cut each half into four sticks. Take a triangle of dough and stretch it out a bit. Place the hot dog stick on the wide part and roll it up towards the narrow tip.
4. Arrange an oven tray and let rise for around 15 minutes. In the meantime, turn the oven on to 180°C. Brush the pigs in blankets with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until nice and golden.
Good to know…
Freezer-friendly. If you want these to be bigger, you can cut the large circle of dough into 8 slices instead of into 16
