Pigs in a blanket or Feuilletés à la saucisse

True classic! Kids love this one! Even older kids! My mom used to buy those at Picard which is France’s favorite grocery store, and my siblings and I would fight for those until the very last one. Picard is specialized in the manufacturing and selling of frozen products which are very high quality and easy to cook. I recently read somewhere that the grocery store works with 20 Michelin chefs to propose the most delicious meals, but always at a high level of convenience (French students are lucky). Wait, what? French people buy and eat frozen food? They do! All the time. They trick out their friends and family with it. Of course, you can imagine that my life became more complicated without Picard when I moved to the U.S.
So because I love cooking and learning new recipes, I decided to start making my own mini pigs in a blanket for New Year’s eve with my best friend Ines. By the way we had the best New year’s ever: We made a ton of finger foods, cocktails and ate cookies for dessert in front of a movie.
Earlier, I looked online for the english translation of what I have always called “feuilletés à la saucisse”. When I saw they were called “pig in a blanket”, I couldn’t help but laugh, and of course automatically picture a pig in a blanket.

  • One 8-oz. can original crescent dough or Pâte feuilletée (french for crescent dough)
  • Dijon Mustard
  • 4 frankfurters (or mini hot dogs)
  • 1 egg yolk


  • Preheat the oven at 190°C or 375°F
  • Spread Dijon Mustard on the dough’s surface.
  • Cut thin triangle slices in the dough. (Like on the picture above)
  • Roll each triangles around the sausages.
  • Place the rolled dogs on a baking sheet.
  • With a brush or the back of a spoon, add some old on each pieces.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-15 or until golden brown.
