  • 8 oz. cocktail sausages or hot dogs
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard store bought, or mix together 2 Tablespoons of dijon mustard, 2 Tablespoons of honey, and 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise.
  • 1 Tablespoon bagel seasoning
  • 1 egg, optional, lightly beaten


  • Defrost the puff pastry enough to unfold it but so it's still firm and chilled, about 30 minutes. Use a sharp knife to cut the puff pastry into 2 x 4 inch pieces.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400F.
  • Meanwhile, if using hot dogs, cut them into 2 inch long pieces. Pat the sausages dry with a few paper towels. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of honey mustard onto the end of each piece of puff pastry, and place a cocktail sausage on top of each.
  • Gently roll the puff pastry around the sausage, pressing to seal together at the end. Set it seam side down on the board. Brush the top of the puff pastry with egg and sprinkle with bagel seasoning.
  • Set 6-8 pigs in a blanket in your air fryer basket, seam side down, with space between each one so the air can circulate. Cook for 5-6 minutes, until flakey and crispy. Serve with extra honey mustard or ketchup.



Note: If the puff pastry sits at room temperature for too long, it'll become too soft and doughy. Once defrosted, work quickly to wrap the pigs in a blanket. If it softens too much while you do the prep work, set the pigs in a blanket in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes before cooking. 
To cook in the oven: Preheat your oven to 400F. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay the pigs in a blanket seam side down on the baking sheet, leaving space between each one. Cook for 25 minutes or until crispy and flakey.
