Pigs in a blanket are the ultimate crowd-friendly appetizer. They are always a hit with kids and adults alike. We elevated the concept and gave it a fun holiday twist by using breakfast sausages links and colorful cranberries in the dipping sauce.



  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚ F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface into a 10-by-14-inch rectangle. Cut in half crosswise and lengthwise to make 4 smaller rectangles, then cut each rectangle crosswise into 4 strips, about 1 3/4 by 5 inches each.
  2. Put a sausage half at one end of each pastry strip, roll up and place seam-side down on the baking sheet. Refrigerate about 15 minutes.
  3. Brush the pastry with the beaten egg, then sprinkle with flaky salt, pepper and minced onion. Bake until the pastry is puffed and golden and the sausage is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate and sprinkle with the parsley.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk the mayonnaise, cranberry sauce and mustard in a small bowl until combined. Serve the pigs in a blanket with the cranberry dip.
