  3. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons (or more if you like) of freshly grated parmesan cheese over the puff pastry squares.
  4. Place a mini sausage at an angle on each square and wrap the two corners of the puff pastry around the top, pinching the ends together to close.
  5. Place the pigs in a blanket seam-side up on the lined baking sheet.
