Jalapeno Popper Pigs in a Blanket are a spicy, cheesy appetizer that will get gobbled up at parties and on game day. This recipe turns a childhood favorite into an adult party food.
A cocktail wiener, cream cheese, bacon crumbles, and jalapeno get wrapped up in puff pastry and baked until golden brown.
I love Jalapeno Popper Pigs in a Blanket as is, but they would also taste good dipped in some Ranch dressing.
Tips for making Jalapeno Popper Pigs in a Blanket
- You can use fresh jalapenos, pickled jalapenos, or canned jalapenos. Your choice.
- Typically crescent roll dough is used for Pigs in a Blanket, but I love the extra cripsness and butteriness puff pastry provides. No puff pastry? Go ahead and use crescent roll dough.
- This tasty appetizer can be assembled ahead of time. just be sure to wrap them well in plastic so that the puff pastry does not dry out. Keep them in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
- You’ll need 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry to make 18 pigs in a blanket. You can easily double the recipe to get 36.
