"Everything" Pigs in a Blanket

This quick and easy dough is worth making from scratch, but store-bought biscuit or crescent dough makes a good substitute when you're short[ on time.]

Total Time:
45 min
25 min
20 min

30 pieces

  • Topping:
  • 3 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • Dough:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Fine salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 30 mini cocktail hot dogs, or about 10 regular hot dogs, cut into thirds
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Spicy brown mustard, for serving
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together the poppy seeds, garlic, onion and sesame seeds in a small bowl; set aside.

  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add the butter and work it into the flour mixture with your fingers until the butter is broken down into very small pea-size pieces. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk. Using a fork, stir the dry ingredients into the wet.

  • Once the dough comes together, knead it gently a couple of times on a well-floured surface. Roll out the dough to a little thinner than 1/8 inch. Cut as many 1 1/2-by-3-inch rectangles as you can. (You should get at least 30 pieces.) Place a mini hot dog onto each rectangle and roll it up, making sure the short ends overlap; seal and arrange seam-side down 2-inches apart on a baking sheet. Brush each dough-wrapped hot dog with the egg and top with 2 generous pinches of the topping.

  • Bake in the oven until golden brown, 17 to 20 minutes. Serve with mustard on the side, for dipping.
