  • 1 tablespoon poppyseeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon white sesame seeds (I like to buy the toasted white sesame seeds!)
  • 1/2 tablespoon black sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt*
  • 1 (8 ounces) original refrigerated crescent dough (8 count)
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 24 mini BEEF hot dogs or cocktail franks
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Dipping Sauce (Optional)

  • 1/2 cup sour cream (full fat recommended)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (full fat recommended)
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard


  1. Prepare the seasoning: Add the poppyseeds, white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, dried minced garlic, dried minced onion, and salt* to a small bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or a silpat liner and set aside.

  3. Unroll the crescent dough (use from straight out of the fridge) and cut each triangle of crescent roll dough into thirds lengthwise so you'll have 3 small/thin strips from each triangle (24 total).

  4. Brush the dough strips very lightly and evenly with the Dijon mustard. Put the hot dogs on the wider side of dough and roll up them up.

  5. Place them with the seam side down (so it doesn't lift) on the prepared sheet pan. With a fork, briskly whisk a full egg until smooth. Brush that egg wash over the dough and sprinkle each pig in a blanket with the seasoning mix (just eyeball for how much you'd like)

  6. Bake in preheated for 10-14 minutes or until lightly golden brown. If desired, serve with the dipping sauce.

  7. To make the dipping sauce: whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate until using and serve alongside the pigs in a blanket.

Recipe Notes

*Add salt to personal preference/discretion. Between the dough and hot dog these are pretty salty on their own, but if you like a super salty treat, add in some additional.
