Recipe Tips

Before you make air fryer frozen pigs in a blanket, quickly read through these few tips so that they will be a success!

  • The puff pastry will expand when being cooked. That’s why it is important to leave some room between the pigs in a blanket when placing them into the air fryer.
  • Keep an eye on them closer to the end of cooking time. The puff pastry should be lightly browned and “puffed” but not deeply golden brown – this might indicate the pastry has been cooked too long.
  • Since every air fryer is different, you cooking time may vary a tad. If you cannot make this amount of pigs in blankets in your air fryer in one batch, consider two batches because they need room to expand.

We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.

Place the frozen pigs in a blanket to the air fryer.

First, preheat the air fryer to 370 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once the air fryer is hot, add the frozen pigs in a blanket.

Place them into the air fryer in one even layer. Leave some space between them since the puff pastry will expand.

If you can’t fit all of them in, you can make less or cook this amount in two batches.

Cook the frozen pigs in their blankets for 6-9 minutes total. Flip them halfway through cooking but be gentle with them.

Storage Tips

Since pigs in a blanket are best enjoyed hot and fresh, you should only cook as many as you require.

That said, any leftover pigs in a blanket can be stored in a sealed container and put in the fridge.

They will last for up to 3 days. However, don’t expect them to be as good as when they are fresh.

To reheat, we’d recommend the air fryer since the microwave might heat them but make them soggier as well.
