Air Fryer Pigs in a Blanket

These air fryer pigs in a blanket are quick, delicious, and a kid-approved lunch or snack. They make the perfect appetizer for any occasion!

Pigs in a blanket are juicy hot dogs or sausages wrapped up in flaky puff pastry or crescent dough. I prefer puff pastry but feel free to use crescent dough instead.


– little smokies – puff pastry sheet – egg – water  –  dijon mustard

In a small bowl, beat the egg and water, then set it aside. Cut out 8 strips from the puff pastry sheet and then cut across 3 times so you have four rows.

Brush each strip with dijon mustard, if desired. Place a little smokie at the end of each strip and roll each little smokie one at a time.

Make sure to pinch the seams and brush the dough with the egg wash. Spray your air fryer basket with nonstick spray and place about 10-12 little smokies in the basket.

Work in batches if you have to but don't overcrowd the basket. Cook for 5-6 minutes and serve with ketchup and mustard, if desired!

Tips and Recipe Variations

- You may add a little bit of shredded cheese right before rolling. - Serve these with ketchup, mustard, honey mustard, bbq sauce, or remoulade sauce.
