Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 24 pieces


  • 1 package Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry, defrosted Defrost overnight in fridge
  • 1 package Hebrew National or Nathan's Beef Franks
  • Nathan's Deli Style Mustard or other deli style mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out one sheet of puff pastry and keep other in fridge until ready to use. Place two franks side by side, horizontally, on puff pastry. Roll pastry to cover the franks and make sure the puff pastry is well tucked under the franks. Cut off excess pastry.
  3. Cut the wrapped hot dogs into 3 inch pieces. You will get about 3 pieces per hot dog, depending upon the size of your franks. Place each piece on the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  4. Repeat with remaining hot dogs, using additional puff pastry as needed.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Serve with deli mustard (and watch them disappear!)
