Description

Air fryer pigs in a blanket are the easiest and yummiest appetizer to serve at a small dinner party, for a snack, or the infamous Girl Dinner! With just a handful of ingredients, you can make these homemade pigs in a blanket coated in herbaceous butter and air-fried to crispy perfection.

Ingredients

Scale

1 (8 oz) tube crescent rolls

24 Mini Cocktail Weenies

4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (or 2 tsp dried Italian seasoning)

Kosher salt


Instructions

Instructions (air fryer): 

  1. Cut each hot dog into three even pieces (if using a standard pack of 8 hot dogs). Skip if using cocktail weenies. 
  1. Open a tube of crescent rolls and roll out the sheet of dough onto a cutting board. Cut on the perforated edges and then proceed to cut each triangle into three small triangles. 
  1. Place the hotdog piece onto the thick part of each dough triangle and roll the hot dog around the dough. 
  1. Mix together the melted butter, garlic powder and herbs together. Brush onto the tops of each hot dog. Sprinkle each weiner with a pinch of kosher salt. Bake for 5-8 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. 
  1. Place ½ the batch or ⅓ (depending on the size of your air fryer) into the air fryer basket. Cook on 325 for 6-8 minutes, turning half way, until the tops are golden brown. 

Instructions (oven): 

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line two 9×13 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. 
  1. Cut each hot dog into three even pieces (if using a standard pack of 8 hot dogs). Skip if using cocktail weenies. 
  1. Open a tube of crescent rolls and roll out the sheet of dough onto a cutting board. Cut on the perforated edges and then proceed to cut each triangle into three small triangles. 
  1. Mix together the melted butter, garlic powder and herbs together. Brush onto the tops of each hot dog. Sprinkle each weiner with a pinch of kosher salt. 
  1. Place the hotdog piece onto the thick part of each dough triangle and roll the hot dog around the dough. Place each hot dog onto the baking sheet in rows of three. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. 

Notes

Note: If you can’t find the cocktail weenies, use an 8 pack of your favorite hot dogs. Cut them into three sections to create smaller weiners that you’ll then roll in dough.
