Introduction

This recipe is so delicious. I did not add the hot dog for there are so many brand the nutrition factor would be different for each brand. You can use bun length or smaller hot dogs. using smaller hot dogs can make for servings. I made 6 blankets for Costco bun length beef hot dogs. But use what ever hot dogs or sausage links you wish. Just add the macros of the meat.
The dough does not taste like cheese. It is best if the dough is chilled before wrapping the hot dogs. Also the dough can be sticky when warm, always have hands wet or oiled. This dough is a base for a lot of fat head dough type recipes. I made 6 piggies in a blanket and the rest of the dough can make pretzel bites. I have not measurements for seasonings, The hot dogs are salty so I use seasoning to complement the dough and the hot dogs. So season to taste.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 cup nature's eats blanched almond flour (shifted)
    10 oz Mozarella Cheese Low moisture part skim
    2 oz Philadelphia cream cheese
    1 large Egg, fresh, whole, raw
    1 serving Whey Protein Isolate Powder (optional)
    1 teaspoon baking powder

    Egg wash
    Use 1 egg and a tablespoon of water.

    Seasonings
    Garlic powder
    Black pepper
    Mrs. Dash jalapeno seasoning
    Italian seasoning

    Toppings
    Cheddar grated
    Pickled jalapenos
    Everything bagel seasoning
    Sesame seeds
    dried garlic



Tips

Dough works best when chilled. There is enough dough to make soft pretzels, or pretzel bites


Directions

Use a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the mozzarella cheese. and cream cheese in 1 minute increments. Once the cheeses are melted stir them together so the are fully combined.

Sit the cheese aside to cool for a few minutes. You do not want the cheese to be to hot to cook the egg, but you do not want the cheese to get cold. If the dough is cool warm it in the microwave for 30 seconds,

You can hand mix, use a mixer or for me, I use a food processor. Measure and put the almond flour, the egg, the baking powder, the protein powder and seasoning and blend.

Add the warm cheese mixture and process the dough until it forms into a ball. If the dough seems too wet, add 2 tablespoons of almond flour.
With your hands wet or slightly oiled knead the dough until uniform. Wrap the dough wit in parchment paper that is slightly oiled. Place the dough in the freezer for 15 minutes or the refrigerator for minutes.
I weighed the dough, at 696 grams. I divide the dough in 12 pieces at 58 grams each.
Flatten each dough piece into small rectangles. Take your hot dog or sausage and put hot dog diagonal length wide of the dough and fold the corners on both side of the hot dogs. The dough wraps better when the hot dog is diagonal of the dough. Now roll the dough carefully so the dough covers the hot dog snugly.
After all the hot dogs are wrapped 6 or 12. Put egg wash on each hot dog add any bagel seasoning on top of the dough wrapped hot dogs, and if you like add cheese and or jalapenos if you like spicy dogs.


Preheat oven at 375 degrees

You can baked them right away, but the piggies holds better if chilled for at least 20 minutes.

When ready to bake the piggies for 18 to 24 minutes until the dough turn a golden brown, Let hot dogs cool for 5 to 10 minutes before eating. Mustard is a great condiment. Great with green leafy salad,

Serving Size: Make 12, 58-60 grams serving
