Ingredients you will need
Here is a quick snapshot of the ingredients you'll need. Scroll down to the recipe card where you'll find exact measurements.
- Little smokies - I like to use little smokies, but if you can't find them then you can cut up regular hot dogs into small pieces to roll in the dough as a substitute.
- Refrigerated crescent dough - you can buy regular crescent dough like I did and cut up each triangle or the sheets will work as well too.
How to make this
Take each triangle and cut it into three strips. Wrap a sausage in each by placing it in the middle and then rolling it until the end. Press the dough a little at the end to seal.
Arrange the pigs in a blanket in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Make sure they are not touching as the dough will puff a little while it cooks.
Cook the air fryer pigs in a blanket at 350 degrees for a total of 6-minutes. At the 3-minute mark stop the air fryer and turn the pigs in a blanket over then continue cooking. If you think they look undercooked just air fry a minute or two more.
These can be assembled ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator prior to cooking. If you are pulling these right out of the fridge you may need to add an extra minute or two to the cooking time since they will be cold.
Yes, you can add an extra minute or two to your cooking time in the air fryer if you are cooking these from frozen.
Yes, just thaw the dough and cut it into strips.
Serve these with your favorite dipping sauces like spicy ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce, and comeback sauce, or mix ketchup and mustard together.
Storage & reheating
Store these in an airtight container or sealable plastic storage bag for up to one week. Reheat in the microwave or air fryer. These are best reheated in the air fryer at the same temperature for a minute or two. These can be frozen for up to one month, thawed, and then reheated as well.
