Hot Dog Puffs
When I’m in doubt of what to bring as an appetizer (and kids are typically involved), usually I’ll make hot dog puffs.
If you haven’t worked with puff pastry sheets, it shouldn’t scare you. Buy it in the freezer section of the supermarket, but if you want it to be readily available, keep it in your refrigerator. Otherwise you’ll need to defrost the box overnight in your refrigerator prior to use. Don’t leave it out because then it will become too sticky and difficult to use.
1 package vegan hot dogs, cut into 2 1/2 inch chunks
1/2 package puff pastry sheets, thawed in refrigerator
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove the puff pastry from the package and roll out onto a floured surface using a floured rolling pin. Dough should not be rolled very thin; a couple passes with the pin will suffice.
Cut the pastry into 2×4 inch strips.
Roll each hot dog chunk in the strip and pinch to seal.
Place on cookie sheets, 3 inches apart.
Bake until medium brown and fully puffed.
Serve with mustard.
