What could be easier--wrap strips of puff pastry around frankfurter halves and bake. It puts an elegant spin on this all-time favorite appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 10 frankfurters (about 1 pound) , cut in half crosswise
  • Prepared mustard

Directions

  • Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.
  • Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the pastry sheet into 20 (1/2-inch) strips.  Wrap the pastry strips around the frankfurters and press to seal.  Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.  Brush the pastries with the egg mixture.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Serve the pastries with the mustard for dipping.
  • For a Holiday Twist, use 5 frankfurters and cut each into quarters lengthwise, then cut in half crosswise, making 40 pieces in all.  Twist each pastry strip into a spiral shape.  Wrap each twisted pastry strip around 2 pieces frankfurter and press to seal.  Brush with the egg mixture and bake as directed above.
