Easy Pigs in a Blanket in the Air Fryer

One of the reason we love the holiday season is because of the opportunity to get together with friends and family and eat good food. One of my kids’ favorite holiday appetizers is pigs in a blanket. These adorable small cocktail sausages wrapped in a flavorful puff pastry is any kids dream. However, once you try this recipe in the air fryer, you will never want to make it any other way.

5-ingredient Tasty Pigs in a Blanket Recipe

I love recipes that are only 5 ingredients or less because they are always simple and quick. This pigs in a blanket recipe is no exception!

  • 8 ounces cocktail sausages
  • 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

Important Tip Before You Begin

You will want to make sure that the puff pastry is defrosted enough that it will unfold. But it still needs to be firm and chilled. I normally I take it out of the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before beginning this recipe.

How to Make Pigs in a Blanket

Making pigs in a blanket is easy! First, roll the puff pastry around the sausage. Then, press together at the ends to seal them up.

Place the pigs in a blanket seam side down in a lightly sprayed air fryer basket.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cocktail sausages
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • ¼ cup honey mustard either store-bought or see homemade recipe in Recipe Notes
  • 1 tablespoon bagel seasoning
  • 1 egg lightly beaten, optional

Instructions

  • 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 400°F/200°C.
  • 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.
