Theon’s Favorite Toy in a Blanket

Sharing is caring!

Based on the Buzzfeed Game of Thrones viewing party menu, these pigs-in-a-blanket are so much fun!

We changed it from brats to hot dogs to make the puff pastry go much further and used BBQ sauce for dipping. We like Stubb’s but you could try our homemade BBQ Sauce recipe.

The ingredients are simple: hot dogs, puff pastry sheets, cheddar cheese, egg, sesame seed.

I just cut through the puff pastry with a pizza slicer to make 8 squares.

But somehow I always forget that “egg wash” means to add some water to your beaten egg.

I think they still turned out perfectly puffy and golden.

  • 8 hot dogs (we like Nathan's Franks)
  • 2 puff pastry sheets
  • 8 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • sesame seeds
  • coarse kosher salt (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400° F
  • (optional) Boil hot dogs according to package instruction, or for pre-cooked brats, pan-sear until brown.
  • Divide the puff pastry in half, and then halve it again. Place cheese in the middle of each pastry diagonally and place the hot dog (or bratwurst) on top.
  • Beat the egg with a bit of water to make an egg wash.
  • Wet the edges of the pastry with some water and fold each sheet over the sausage. Seal with a fork and brush each pocket with egg wash. Sprinkle with sesame seed and kosher salt (optional).
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Serve with BBQ sauce.
