How to Make Pigs in a Blanket in an Air Fryer
- Open your can of rolls and separate the rolls along the dotted lines. Cut the rolls in thirds lengthwise with a sharp knife or pizza cutter.
- Wrap each weiner with a strip of the dough.
- Place as many of the weiners into the air fryer’s basket, making sure they don’t touch. Turn the air fryer on to 350°F for 3 minutes. Flip the weniers over and set for an additional 3-4 minutes until they are golden brown.
- Remove them from the basket and repeat with the remaining weiners.
I used the Ninja Foodi, but you can use whatever air fryer you have. Just be aware some of your settings may be different.
You can think of what you might serve with a classic hot dog. Of course, you can’t go wrong with ketchup. Some out the box dips would be ranch, cheese sauce, bbq sauce, or a mix of relish and mustard. My favorite is Yum Yum Sauce.
Yes, I’ve made these with the turkey little Smokies and the classic beef little Smokies; another great option is to use the little cheddar Smokies for an extra burst of flavor.
Of course, you can. Instead of cutting the crescent roll into thirds, leave it whole and wrap the entire hotdog. Keep an eye on it. You might need to add another minute or two to the cooking time.
