In order to enjoy hosting a wonderful party, it’s only natural to depend on a few pre-made treats to make the night go smoothly. These cocktail franks are a perfect way to keep your guests happy, and keep your time in the kitchen to a limit.
Pigs in a blanket may seem like an over done and out dated choice for hor d’oeuvres, but if you make anything with beautiful ingredients, it is immediately elevated from old fashioned, to retro. By using highest quality miniature all-beef frankfurters and encasing them in buttery French puff pastry, pigs in a blanket is transformed into an elegant fun appetizer that can immediately transport even the most discriminating food critic to a place of childhood enjoyment.
Before serving, allow your cocktail franks to thaw in the refrigerator until they are tender to the touch. Then bake them off in the oven until the pastry has puffed and turned golden brown, and the franks are steaming hot and juicy. Once the delicious aromas of beef and butter seep out of your kitchen and reach your guests, they’ll know they are in for a treat.
