We’re totally in love with her fresh, tasty take on this beloved snack recipe, which uses puff pastry to wrap the hot dogs. Obviously, the result looks mouthwatering and classy, while also being the ideal comfort food. See for yourself.

We all know that “dinner in a hurry” feeling Ina describes in her post—and only five minutes to prep? Yeah, it’s safe to say we’re obsessed with this.
