Vegan Pigs In A Blanket Recipe

This recipe for vegan pigs in a blanket is so easy to make and they’re the perfect finger food for any occasion! The whole party will love these tasty vegan appetizers (and the pigs will thank you too!)

You can make these vegan pigs in blankets using an oven or air fryer!

Pretty much every party I’ve ever been to pigs in a blanket were served. They’re sadly very popular so I wanted to make easy vegan pigs in a blanket that you can make for your party or get-together.

Vegan Pigs In A Blanket

I’ve been trying to create vegan pigs in a blanket for a while but all of the vegan hot dogs I tried weren’t very good, to say the least.

That was until I found the Field Roast Signature Stadium Style Dogs (at Sobeys). This isn’t a sponsored post I just really love them. They are hard to find so use your favourite vegan hot dogs.

If you want to make these fast, grab Pillsbury wiener wraps as they are accidentally vegan so that makes it even easier to make pigs in blankets that are vegan!

How To Make Vegan Pigs In A Blanket

This recipe is pretty straightforward to put together. There are only a few ingredients and can be prepped in 5 minutes and cooked in under 10! I personally use my air fryer to cook basically everything in my life at this point because I’m addicted but I made sure to make these both in the oven and air fryer so that I could know time measurements and temps for both, (hint; it takes about half the time in the air fryer, you’re welcome)

  1. Take your roll of Pillsbury Wiener Wraps (or vegan puff pastry) and open them and unravel them. Seperate them at the perforate seams. You’ll have 6 sheets, cut each sheet into thirds so you have 18 wraps now. Next take you vegan wieners out of the package and cut them into thirds. Take a piece of wiener and place on one end of one piece of wrap. Roll them up until the seam attaches at the other end. Repeat process for other 17 wiener pieces.
  2. *optional step* melt some vegan butter in a saucepan and add minced garlic. Use a brush to brush the vegan garlic butter on top of vegan pigs in a blanket.
  3. Air Fryer Instructions: Place the wraps in your air fryer basket and turn the air fryer to 390 F for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. (be careful they can burn easily in the air fryer)
  4. Oven Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and space the wraps evenly out on sheet. Place in oven for 15-18 minutes or until they are golden brown.
  5. Serve hot to your guests, with dijon mustard and BBQ sauce.

Kitchen Equipment I used for recipe:

  • Ninja Foodie 9-1 Air Fryer Unit – Okay I’ll be the first to admit I was an air fryer hater before but now I am the ultimate air fryer truther! This is the unit I use and it’s unreal because it comes with an instant pot, steamer, dehydrator, sautee, and more all in one unit! It comes in a couple of different sizes (I got the 8 quarts and it’s huge but I love it).
  • Aesthetically pleasing teal spoon set – a lot of people recently have been asking about my spoon set and I feel like a fraud because everyone thinks it’s some expensive set but it’s super inexpensive and they look amazing!

Nutritionally speaking there really isn’t too much to vegan pigs in a blanket. After all, there are only 2 ingredients and they’re both highly processed. Although these are relatively low-calorie, I’ve never been someone that can only eat one pig in a blanket. I usually eat several throughout the soiree. It’s important to remember that when you’re eating them those calories can add up very quickly. Eating just 5 of these without sauce is over 350 calories, add sauce and you’re easily over 500 extra calories.

These vegan pigs in a blanket are a great treat but that’s it.

Commonly Asked Vegan Pigs In A Blanket Questions

Are crescent rolls vegan?

Yes, Pillsbury crescent rolls are vegan. That doesn’t mean that they are healthy for you as they are loaded with other oils and are very calorie-dense. But they are very delicious and versatile in the kitchen. They give vegans lots of options of what they can make with them!

Can you get vegan pigs in a blanket?

Depending on where you live you may be able to buy vegan pigs in a blanket from your local supermarket, but odds are that you’ll have to make them on your own. Sainsbury in the UK makes a frozen vegan pig in a blanket for purchase. However, with how easy they are to make fresh, you’re not missing out on much by not having them available frozen.
