Who says pigs in a blanket are just for kids? Set out these cute little appetizers at your next gathering and we guarantee they’ll go fast! Featuring cocktail sausages and a sweet and tangy honey-mustard sauce tucked inside puff pastry, they cook quickly in an air fryer using very little oil. And best of all, you can assemble them ahead of time—a boon when you’re entertaining.

Ingredients

For the honey-mustard sauce:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbs. yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 12 cocktail sausages, patted dry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbs. everything seasoning
  • Avocado oil or canola oil cooking spray

Directions:

  • To make the honey-mustard sauce, in a small bowl, stir together the honey, both mustards, mayonnaise, vinegar and cayenne until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, gently roll out or trim the puff pastry (depending on its original size) into an 8-by-12-inch (20-by-30-cm) rectangle. Then cut into 12 rectangles, each 2 by 4 inches (5 by 10 cm).
  • Line a large plate or a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon a scant 1/2 tsp. honey-mustard sauce onto the narrow end of a puff pastry rectangle and place a cocktail sausage on top. Tightly roll the puff pastry around the sausage, then brush the end of the pastry with a little of the beaten egg and press to seal. Place, seam side down, on the prepared plate. Repeat to make the remaining pigs in a blanket.
  • Brush the tops of the rolled pigs in a blanket with the remaining beaten egg and sprinkle with the everything seasoning. Refrigerate, uncovered, for 30 minutes, or cover and refrigerate up to overnight. The pigs in a blanket can be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and frozen up to 3 days.
  • Preheat an air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for at least 5 minutes or according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Generously spray the fry basket with oil spray. Place 6 pigs in a blanket, seam side down, in a single layer in the fry basket, making sure the seam is sealed to prevent the pastry from expanding during frying. Leave some space between each one to promote a constant flow of air, which will maximize crispness. Lightly spray the pigs in a blanket with spray oil. Insert the basket into the air fryer. Cook until the pastry is crisp and flaky, 6 to 8 minutes (check after 6 minutes, as air fryers cook differently). Transfer to a platter. Repeat to cook the remaining pigs in a blanket. Serve with the remaining honey-mustard sauce for dipping. Serves 3 or 4.
