Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket

Yield 30 Pieces

Ingredients:

1 16-ounce package hot dogs with cheese (10 hot dogs per package), drained
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from 17-ounce package), thawed
1 egg, beaten
1 Tablespoon cold water
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions:

1. Pat hot dogs dry.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. On a lightly floured surface, unfold thawed puff pastry sheet.  Press fold perforations together to make a solid sheet.  Using a rolling pen, roll pastry sheet to measure 15 x 10-inches.  Cut into 10 rectangles, each measuring 3 x 5-inches.
3. Roll each hot dog in pastry rectangle, gently stretching and pressing dough ends together to seal.
4. Cut each wrapped hot dog into 3 pieces (about 1-1/2 inches).
5. Beat egg and water together in a small bowl.  Quickly dip each wrapped hot dog into egg wash and then roll in cheese, coating all surfaces.  Place, 1 inch apart, seams side down, on baking sheets lined with parchment paper or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
6. Bake in preheated 400 degree F oven for 15 minutes or until pastry is light brown.  Immediately transfer to cooling rack.  Serve warm with assorted mustards or barbecue sauces.
