Moshe B’Tayva: The Israeli Version of Pigs in Blankets

moshe b'tayva (pigs in blankets)

In Israel, those wonderful dough-wrapped frankfurters are called “Moshe B’Tayva,” or loosely:
“Moses in the Basket.” You wouldn’t expect Jews to name a dish after pigs, now would you?? But essentially, these treats are as well beloved and easy to make, as they are in America. After all, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” right?

Moshe B’Tayva is fun to make and eat, so if you’re looking for a cooking project you can do with your kids during the coronavirus epidemic, or at any other time, this is the one. Brush the inside of the (store-bought) puff paste with mustard or ketchup, whatever the kiddies enjoy! And have them brush the tops with beaten egg, for a beautiful shiny golden top.
