Franks in Blankets

I had some pastry left over from making the Poor Man's Wellington and some frankfurters in the fridge so i thought id make some Franks in Blankets.

I first had these when we lived in America and loved them, there is something about a cheap frankfurter wrapped in pastry.

I like them dipped in Chilli Ketchup and American Mustard...yummy!!!!

It's tacky but tasty!!

They are so simple to make, i feel like a fraud posting the recipe.....

Pre heat oven 200c, 400c, Gas Mark 6

Prep time 10 minutes
Cooking time 12/15 minutes

300g Puff pastry
8 Frankfurters
1 Egg beaten
Flour for dusting

Roll out pastry to approx 20 x 16 inches.

Brush the pastry with the beaten egg, lay the frankfurters on the pastry two high and cut the pastry wide enough to roll around the frankfurters, then roll around the frankfurters and seal with egg.

Cut each roll into 8, brush with egg, and put on to a baking tray approximately 2cms apart.

Bake in the oven for 12/15 minutes, until golden brown.

  1. A super fast & easy way to make this is to use the pillsbury dough - crescents and the lil' smokies sausages. Just cut the crescents in fourths and roll up the sausages. Pop them in the oven and you're done. But I'm not sure you have those in the UK, I'll have to check next time we're out and about.
    Looks yummy Rach!
