  • 2 Place 6 dough slices on cookie sheet. Cut remaining 3 slices into 6 pieces each.

Expert Tips

Want a more substantial side? Stuff each pig with a cocktail sausage by cutting the slice in half horizontally, halfway through the round. Place cocktail sausage inside of dough round. Pinch dough to seal. Repeat with 5 more slices.

Try using pepper or an herb mix instead of the poppy seed for a flavorful twist.
