Pull Apart Pigs in a Blanket

Lil Smokies Pigs in a Blanket

If you love our air fryer pigs in a blanket recipe you’ll love these!

You can really use whatever type of weiners you want for this. Cutting hot dogs into thirds is fine too. Smokies however do have a bit thicker outer skin with a stronger flavor already so they’re great.

Seen below is Pillsbury refrigerated pizza dough. Biscuits would be okay too, flattened and sliced into strips so it can be wrapped around each one.

Most important part of that is to make sure the thickness of the dough is the same all the way across so it bakes evenly. Nobody wants to bite into raw dough.

What does pigs in a blanket mean?

It’s basically a hot dog product with dough wrapped around it and cooked. There are many ways to bake, air fry, or you could even deep fry them. Typically you use your oven just long enough for dough to brown.

How do you keep pigs in a blanket from getting soggy?

Make sure before you wrap them up you blot the smokies with paper towels. You want to ensure there is no moisture on the outside or else it may not turn out as crispy as you’d like.

If you use a round cake pan it will turn out best, and prettiest for serving purposes. Of course you could use a spring form pan square one if that is all you have.

If you want to lift the whole thing out you may want to use these 9″ parchment paper sheets. They have handles on the sides so when done you just grab the sides, lift out, and slide on to your serving platter!!

  2. Refrigerated pizza dough roll

  3. Melted butter
  4. Garlic powder
  5. You could even sprinkle everything bagel seasoning all over the top so it sticks if you wanted more flair and flavor. OR Italian seasoning or red pepper flakes would add heat.

You’ll want a wad of foil to place into the middle too. Then once removed and put on to a platter you can slide a ramekin full of bbq sauce or ketchup in the center.

How do you keep pigs in a blanket warm for a party?

If you prep this ahead of time make sure you dry hot dogs before wrapping. Do not pour on butter until right before baking so they don’t get soft and icky. Bake just as the party begins so they’re fresh.

You could turn off when done and place them into the microwave on the warm setting. Or remove, lower temp. to 225 F and put inside but I wouldn’t leave them in for long or they’ll dry out.

Perfectly easy appetizer for game days, a rainy weekend, or summertime treat. Serve with dipping sauces like bang bang sauce, fry sauce, ketchup and mustard.

Here’s how you do it. There is a printable recipe card at the bottom for you too. It will take under 30 minutes to preheat oven, and prepare these, add foil and get ready to bake these in your oven.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray 9″ cake pan with non stick spray.
  • Open refrigerated pizza dough and roll out on to a non stick cutting board
  • Use a pizza cutter to slice dough into 1×2″ pieces

Lay smokies on paper towels and roll up to remove moisture on the outside. Wrap each small smokie in dough and seal on the ends. Then place facing upwards in the cake pan starting at the outer rim going all the way around. Do not overcrowd each piece knowing the dough will spread.

  • Pour this over the top of all of the wrapped sausages.
  • Bake at 375 for 30 minutes and then check to see if dough is lightly browned and not sticky anymore. If not bake for additional 5 minutes and check again.

Take out and allow to cool for 10 minutes. If you want to transfer to a plate put one on top and gently flip over, then put another plate on the top of that and flip it upright. Remove foil and add a small dish with dip in the middle and serve!
