Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 sheet puff pastry (half a 17.3-ounce package, thawed)
12-ounce package cocktail franks
1 large egg, slightly beaten
2-3 teaspoons poppy seeds
Ketchup, for serving

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Unfold pastry on a work surface. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 10 equal strips crosswise. Cut these into thirds to yield 30 1x3-inch pieces. Pat cocktail franks dry. Wrap each frank in a strip of pastry and place seam-side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush pastry with egg and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden. Serve with ketchup. Makes 30.
