Italian Pigs in a Blanket

  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 12 pieces 1x


A twist on the traditional pigs in a blanket appetizer. This delicious finger food features italian sausage and mozzarella cheese, wrapped in a puff pastry and brushed with a garlic, parmesan and butter sauce. Serve with a side of marinara sauce.


  • 1 pkg puff pastry sheets (cut into triangles)
  • 1 block mozzarella cheese (sliced)
  • 1 pkg fully cooked pork sausage links
  • 4 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley (chopped)
  • ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • marinara sauce (for dipping)


  1. Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Once your puff pastry sheets are thawed, cut one in half and then cut each piece diagonally to form 2 triangles. Repeat with 2 other sheets. You should have 12 triangles in total.
