Pigs in a blanket, or hot dogs wrapped in dough: Whatever you call it, they are sure to please taste buds of all ages. This idea came about as an afterthought. I was trying out Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix . I followed the directions on the package  for making the crust. The recipe says it makes two 12″ pizzas or one 16″ pizza. Well, my 16″ pizza turned out to be more like 14″. So, I had dough leftover. Since my daughter doesn’t like pizza, I decided to use the dough for hot dog buns. I cut the remaining dough into four rectangles and wrapped them around uncooked hot dogs. Then, I put them onto a lightly greased baking sheet and baked them for about 15 minutes. (No pre-baking was necessary.) They turned out great. And, how did my daughter like it? Well, let’s just say she’s used to eating hot dogs without buns. My husband and I thought they were delicious. We’ll definitely make them again. I think next time I’ll try some with a slice of cheese in them, too.
I wanted to share this because I thought it would be a great idea for a kid’s (or grown-up’s) gluten-free birthday party. Make the dough in advance, and have the hot dogs wrapped with the dough, covered on a baking sheet and waiting in the refrigerator until the guests show up. Then, pop the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. You could have a whole tray of these cooked and ready to serve while the kids play games, open presents, etc.
I should also mention that the pizza crust turned out very good, too! But somehow, I forgot to take a picture of the pizza we made. It was devoured way too quickly for me to even get a shot of it. 😉
