Guilt-Free Keto Pigs in a Blanket

Yes, you heard us right. The party has arrived.

We’re loving this Guilt-Free Keto Pigs in a Blanket recipe — a new (healthier) take on a party favorite.

Ingredients

“Fat Head Style” Crust aka The Blanket:
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup almond flour 
1 egg
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sesame seeds 

The Pigs:
4 medium sized hot dogs (We recommend an organic hotdog, or trying turkey or chicken instead of beef or pork. You can even use meatless hot dogs — soy based tofu dogs!) 

Instructions: 

Cut each hot dog into 3 equal sized pieces and set aside. 
Melt mozzarella and combine with almond flour and egg. 
Add in baking powder, garlic powder, and salt. Combine well.
Form dough in hands and cut it into 12 equal sized pieces and roll into small dough balls.
The crust can be a bit sticky, so we recommend using a parchment linked baking sheet.
Press each dough ball into a flat oval shape.
Place each hot dog into the dough and wrap that piggy up!
Sprinkle with sesame seeds. You may need to press them into the dough so that they stick.
Place pigs in the oven at 350 degrees for about 17 – 20 minutes. 
Serve warm and ENJOY!
