Try this twist on Memorial Day: Pigs in a quilt

What says Memorial Day weekend and signals the start of summer better than a hotdog recipe? Right? So how about serving up some “Pigs in a Quilt” which is way more fun than the ol’ blanket variety. Check out this recipe we found on www.delish.com and throw it together this weekend for your friends and family! Did we mention that it looks complicated in the photo but turns out to be easy?! See for yourself in the video. We post the recipe just beneath that.


1 tube Pillsbury French bread dough
Cooking spray, for pan
8 hot dogs
Melted butter, for brushing dough
Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling
Yellow mustard, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll out French bread dough into a large rectangle. Cut into 8 thin strips.
  2. Transfer strips to a lightly oiled baking sheet. Fold back every other strip and lay down first hot dog. Bring strips back over hot dog and fold back alternate strips. Lay down second hot dog and repeat weave process until you’ve reach the end of the strip (about 6 hot dogs).
  3. Trim sides.
  4. Brush dough with melted butter and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Bake until deeply golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Slice into squares and serve with yellow mustard.
