Pepper Jack Pigs in a Blanket

Some times it’s the simplest things in life that give us so much joy.

Clean sheets on your bed, a fresh cup of coffee, Pigs in your blankets.



Because heaven help you if you’re the kind of person that’s too cool for pigs in a blanket.  You are severely missing out on a life joy.

Now I’m not talking about the pull out of the freezer and bake kind of pigs in a blanket.  I am talking about the wildly easy appetizer to make and specialize in a heart beat that will instantly win you hugs from grown men and children alike.  Probably your girlfriends too, if your girlfriends are anything like mine.



See, all it takes a little puff pastry and a piece of pork (be that bacon, sausage, or these teeny weenies we’ve got going on here.)

But let’s focus more on how easy it is to make these amazing.  Whole grain mustard and pepper jack cheese make these pigs in a blanket just a little more sassy.

You could do bacon and brie.  You could do sausage and cheddar.  It’s really endless.  Just take the 10 hot minutes to prepare them instead of pouring them out of the bag.

Roll the puff pastry out on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the puff pastry in 3 rows and 10 columns, making small rectangles. Brush a small amount of whole grain mustard on the puff pastry. Cut the pepper jack cheese in thin strips, and place 1 strip in the center of the puff pastry.  Place the little smokie on the end and roll to create a sleeve around the sausage.   Place the pig in a blanket seam down on a lined baking sheet. Bake in a 425 preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
