    Here's How To Make The Best Pigs In A Blanket You'll Ever Eat

    This recipe was cooked up for a Game of Thrones viewing party. Check out the full plan here.

    For our Game of Thrones viewing party, we decided to pay tribute to Theon Greyjoy's favorite toy.

    Theon's Favorite Toy in a Blanket

    Makes 4 pigs in a blanket


    4 bratwursts

    2 ready-to-bake puff pastry sheets

    4 slices of cheddar

    1 egg for egg wash

    Sesame seeds

    Poppy seeds

    Kosher salt, to taste


    Preheat oven to 400°F.

    Sear the bratwursts in a pan until brown on both sides.

    Divide the puff pastry sheet in half. Place a slice of cheddar in the middle of each sheet and place a bratwurst on top.

    Wet the edges of the pastry with a little bit of water and fold each sheet onto itself to wrap the sausages. Seal with a fork. Brush each pocket with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame and poppy seeds, and a bit of salt.

    Bake for 15–20 minutes until golden brown. Serve while still warm.
