The Best Keto Pigs in a Blanket

Hot dogs were a huge part of my childhood, from cutting it up and mixing it into my macaroni to boiling them on the stove and eating them for an after school snack. But, my favorite hot dog recipe of all has to be pigs in a blanket. Before turning to keto I searched them out at all events. Although not the classiest of appetizers they were by far the most delicious. Of course I had to remake them low carb style, and so I present to you Keto Pigs In A Blanket.

I don’t think a recipe can get much simpler. All you really need to prepare is the crust and I’ve given you a four ingredient crust! It resembles a fathead crust, but without the cream cheese which means less calories per pig. Once you’ve got the crust all you need to do is cut any hot dog of choice into pieces and wrap those babies! They only take 30 minutes total to make which means you’ll always have a go to, sorta classy, super delicious appetizer! And, nothing beats that.

You’ll Need:

  • 4 medium hot dogs
  • 1/2 cup Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame Seeds


  1. Cut each hot dog into 3 equal sized pieces and set aside.
  2. Melt mozzarella in microwave and add almond flour and egg. Combine well.
  3. Add baking powder, garlic and salt. Combine well.
  4. Form dough in hands and split into 12 equal sized pieces and roll into dough.
  5. Place dough balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Press each ball into oval shape.
  6. Place each hot dog piece into the dough and wrap like a blanket.
  7. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (press down so they stick to dough).
  8. Place pigs in 350 degree oven for 17-20 minutes.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!
