Baby showers are all about showering the mom with love, playing funny games, and good food! I am having two baby showers in the next few months (perks of living away from family!) and I have been looking at ideas and different themes like crazy. What I've realized is no matter what theme you go with, the food is so important and man do I have the perfect recipe for you!
Baby in a blanket. Adorable right?! Coming from Texas, kolaches are a staple. They are basically glorified pigs in a blanket, and I love making this quick snack, so why not share it with family and friends! This appetizer recipe is only 3 ingredients, it's literally that easy and it will definitely be the talk of the party!
Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets, sesame seeds, and hot dogs with cheese inside. Normally pigs in a blanket are made with sausage, but I love these hot dogs because the cheese is already in them and it's less of a mess when baking them. The puff pastry sheets are such a great alternative as opposed to the standard crescent rolls because they get super fluffy and taste delicious.

I let the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry sheets sit out for 40 minutes to defrost. This gave me time to prep the oven for 375 and get the hot dogs cut in half. When they have defrosted enough, I cut each sheet into halves, and then triangles. I started rolling up the hot dog in it, leaving a good portion of the top of the "head" out so it could resemble a baby wrapped in a blanket. I have a video tutorial that will be linked below for better demonstration!
The sesame seeds bring these little babies to life! I just placed two seeds to look like eyes and then lined them up on a cookie sheet, baking them about 10-15 minutes until the pastry had puffed up. And that's IT! These are ready to serve, or you can store them in a container to freeze until your baby shower! These are so yummy on their own, but can pair great with your favorite dipping sauce.
Seriously, how adorable are these babies in a blanket?! If you are hosting a baby shower, or need to bring a yummy treat, these are the perfect solution! If you want to get inspiration for other appetizer or dessert ideas, check them out below!
