April 24th is National Pigs In A Blanket day... Is there anyone in America that doesn't love pigs in a blanket? The flaky hot dog stuffed treats that keep you coming back for more are not only delicious but also super easy to make. In honor of this holiday and the weekend I thought I would share a recipe and the secret to making these babies from thedailymeal.com :

The secret to making this tasty comfort food is to smear on more of your cream cheese mixture than you think. Then, go ahead and add in your hot dog and cut the puff pastry into your desired size. Then you add on your egg wash and sprinkle the pigs in a blanket with some everything bagel seasoning, which is one of the most beloved Trader Joe’s items of all time.

Ingredients:

1 puff pastry sheet

8 ounces cream cheese

5 scallions, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)

5 hot dogs

1 egg, whisked

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

1 tablespoon poppy seeds

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
