Cheesy hot dog puffs



1.Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced). Grease and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
2.Cut each sheet of pastry into 9 equal squares (total 27). Top the centre of each pastry square evenly with cheese, then salsa.
3.Place a frankfurt diagonally across each pastry square (corner to corner). Wrap 2 opposite corners of pastry over frankfurt to enclose.
4.Transfer to prepared trays. Brush tops with egg, then sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden, puffed and cooked, swapping trays halfway through cooking. Serve with tomato sauce.

To freeze: Place uncooked puffs on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Freeze until firm, then layer between sheets of baking paper in a freezer-safe container. There’s no need to thaw; just cook frozen puffs for an extra 10 minutes. You can substitute pesto or sweet tomato chutney for salsa, if liked.
