Do pigs in a blanket bring back childhood memories? Or maybe a wild wedding you attended? I think it’s safe to say no matter the age, everyone loves a hot dog wrapped in a warm, soft bread.

Hot dogs, believe it or not, are an excellent choice on the keto diet! They’re full of fat and protein which make them very macro friendly. And let’s be honest, they’re just GOOD!

The key to hot dogs is to buy QUALITY ones. 100% beef or bust! Think past the old Oscar Meier weiners and onto uncured hot dogs. The less fillers your dogs have, the better. Remember, it’s just as important to eat clean as it is to eat low carb.

 

With that said, I know uncured hot dogs can be pricey and/or harder to find. In fact, my local grocer doesn’t always have uncured hot dogs. 

Personally, I buy Kirkland 100% beef hotdogs (from Costco). A pack of 3 is only $10! They’re not 100% clean but they’re wayyyyy better than the cheap stuff!

Let’s talk about what makes the dough, for a minute! Crescent rolls are a thing of the past now. Making a little tweak to my Fat Head Dough turns a pizza crust into a chewy, fluffy, bread-like roll!

The key to a good fat head dough is to knead it, knead it, knead it. The more you work with it, the easier it gets to roll out and the less sticky it becomes. It should always be uniform in color/texture, meaning there aren’t specks of yellow or white throughout.

See…down below…all the same color and it looks like regular dough.

A Few Notes For This Recipe:

1. Use a kitchen scale to measure/portion out your dough evenly. You should be able to get 6 piglets out of this dough. 

2. Getting your hands a little damp will help with keeping your hands from getting sticky when kneading the dough.

3. Lot of folks LOVE Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning on these. It’s definitely not necessary though! 

4. Dab a teeny bit of water on top of the prepared piglets before adding the EBTH seasoning. It will stick to the dough better instead of sliding off onto the baking sheet. 

5. These re-heat REALLY well. You can make these ahead of time for an on-the-go dinner or lunch box option.

6. Turn these into a keto party appetizer by using little smokies and smaller portions of dough!

  • These hot dogs are DELICIOUS! It has been over a year and a half since I have had a “bun” with my hot dogs and it was marvelous! Even my teenage son who isn’t low carb liked them. BTW, we didn’t have the Trader Joe seasoning and still fantastic!

  • Sooooo excited! I thought these would be difficult, and I’ve never made Fathead, but they were SO DANG EASY and delicious. These will be on the regular around here. Thanks!

  • These were delicious! The only bad part (which wasn’t that bad) I could really taste the almond flour. Did I do something wrong or is there something else I can do so it’s not so “almondy”??

    • It probably depends on the brand and type of almond flour you used. Also, I think some people’s palates are more sensitive to it. If you use a superfine blanched almond flour, it shouldn’t be nutty. I use Kirkland (Costco) brand in all of my recipes.

  • I love pigs in a blanket so I was excited to try this but skeptical as sometimes keto “bread”-like things are terrible. However I was pleased they came out really well.

    I had most ingredients on hand except the franks, so it was a light shopping which was a bonus for the week. The piggies were super simple and quick to make too. Awesome recipe!

  • I made these a couple days ago only I used Johnsonville jalapeño brats instead of hotdogs and I used my own seasoning as I didn’t have the one in the recipe on hand and they were AMAZING! I’m using the leftover dough this morning for sausage patties with egg and cheese wrapped in it and they are AMAZING! Thank you for this awesomely easy recipe!

  • These are amazing and a SANITY-SAVER! I have made several different “doughs” over the last couple weeks and I was on the verge of TEARS thinking that there is NOTHING that can replace that bread-like taste. Your dough recipe is on point. I also feel like cream cheese is too much in some recipes! Great job. When I go back teaching in the fall – these will make a quick meal-plan lunch when I am feeling lazy (keto). Keep the recipes coming! I am going to try out more and more over the next few weeks.
