Ingredients

  • 14 oz little smokies
  • 1 1/2 cup bread flour
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 large egg
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • Everything bagel seasoning

Instructions

  • In a large bowl or bowl in stand mixer, combine bread flour, instant yeast, sugar and salt. Mix well.
  • Warm milk to 80-100 degree F (use microwave; avoid going above 100 degrees F). Melt unsalted butter. Crack one egg into a small bowl and beat up the egg.
  • Mix warm milk and melted unsalted butter with egg. Then pour the wet mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients.  
  • If using a stand mixer, use a dough hook to knead dough. If not using a stand mixer, combine mixture as much as possible using hand. Lightly flour a clean surface, pour combined mixture to surface, and knead dough with hand. When kneading is complete dough should not stick to fingers when you press on the dough. Add 1/2 tbsp of flour to dough as needed if dough sticks to your fingers. (See Note 1)
  • Transfer dough to a bowl that is greased with butter or vegetable oil, and let dough rise for 3 to 4 hours.
  • When dough is risen, punch dough to release the air. 
  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Then grab a small piece of dough (see picture). Remember that a little dough does go a long way!
  • Flatten dough into a rectangular-like shape.

  • Then wrap dough around the little smokies, and seal well.
    Making Everything Bagel Pigs in the Blanket
  • Repeat steps 8-10 until all the little smokies are wrapped. 
  • Place all wrapped little smokies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If not using parchment paper, grease baking sheet with butter or vegetable oil. Crack the other egg and beat well. Then brush the egg wash to  the top surface of each pigs in the blanket. 
  • Sprinkle each pigs in the blanket with Everything Bagel seasoning.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Note 1: If dough is too dry add more melted butter, if dough is too wet, add more flour. Dryness/wetness of the dough can be influenced by humidity, temperature etc. Feel it out and get the dough to a point where it doesn't stick to your fingers when you press against it, but also not super dry!
