Air Fryer Pigs In A Blanket featuring puff pastry as the breading. This is a kid-friendly lunch recipe that they might ask for seconds. Air fried pigs in a blanket are a must make snack, lunch or dinner.


  • 1 package of hot dogs (I used Hebrews National)
  • 1 package of thawed puff pastry
  • Salt for sprinkling on top (optional)


  1. Start by preheating your air fryer to 325 degrees. 
  2. Defrost your puff pastry as directed on the package. 
  3. Now you will take a hot dog and cut it in half. I use this as a guide to know how large to cut out to roll my hot dogs.
  4. You want the square to be close in size of hot dogs. 
  5. Take your hot dog half and start rolling at one end of puff pastry, grab other parts of dough and repeat with other slices of hot dog. 
  6. Place on your rack for air fryer oven or place on parchment paper on counter. Repeat until all the hot dogs have been wrapped. 
  7. Once all are wrapped place on air fryer rack or in basket. Make sure not to overlap. 
  8. Now you will cook in air fryer for about 8-10 minutes. At this time check to make sure they are not overcooked. 
  9. Cook your puff pastry hot dogs until the party is golden brown and cooked through. Depending on the brand and model of air fryer will vary in cooking time. 
  10. Sprinkle with a little salt on top of the puff pastry pigs in a blanket when done if you would like.


Crescent Rolls - You can use crescent rolls in replace of hot dogs if you would like.

Hot Dogs - If you want reach for a cheesy hot dog or even little smokies for a slight twist of flavor.

Air Fryer Cook Time - All air fryers heat slightly different so use the time as a guide. You want the puff pastry to be golden in color and cooked through. Adjust the cook time as needed.
