Pigs in a blanket are a crowd pleaser. There’s something so comforting about them. So I turned pigs in a blanket into an even better adult version! Fancy enough for a holiday party. But comforting enough to remind you of your childhood with every bite.

How I leveled up pigs in a blanket…

I use puff pastry dough instead of cresent rolls. And andouille sausage instead of lil smokies. I added shredded cheese in the rolls. And an egg wash with seasoning on the outside!

These puff pastry sausage rolls are a knockout!!!

How big should the puff pastry sheet be?

I used the Pillsbury puff pastry and cut it in half! But if your puff pastry package already comes with two pieces, you can use the size it is.

I use one andouille sausage per recipe. You cut off the bent sausage part to get two straight pieces. So one recipe makes two sausage logs.

What kind of sausage meat should you use?

I use an andouille sausage. It’s almost the same firmness as the lil’ smokies used in pigs in a blanket.

You can use a ground pork sausage. But make sure to freeze the rolled up sausage in puff pastry for 30 minutes before slicing!

The andouille sausage is easily sliceable so the freezing isn’t necessary. The ground sausage is harder to cut through without smushing.

What sauce to serve with these homemade sausage rolls?

These are so flavorful they don’t even need a dipping sauce. Griffin needs a sauce with everything. He agreed these don’t even need a sauce!

But you could do honey mustard if you are wanting to add a sauce.

What to do with leftovers?

Store them in a container in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave when you want to eat!
