Keto Pigs in a Blanket
These little keto pigs in a blanket were gone in a matter of minutes. IF THAT! Loved by my entire family. I do not normally eat hot dogs or anything like that, but when your 5-year-old asks for some little smokies and it has at least been a year – you oblige. Well, at least I did!
I considered throwing the smokies in the crockpot with some keto BBQ sauce, but then I remembered something from long ago.
Years and years ago my mom came to visit and made this “dinner” that my kids loved and begged me for afterward. I refused, of course, because while I allow Grandma to give the kids “treats”, it wasn’t something I would make.
They talked about this meal forever and literally put it at gourmet status.

Want to know what Grandma’s awesome gourmet meal was? You know those croissants that you unwrap the package and pop the container, roll them up and bake them?
Well, she took those and rolled each one around a hotdog. Baked it and served it. My kids thought this was the best thing since sliced bread.
So… I took my bagel recipe that I know my kids love, modified it slightly and used that as rollups for the little smokies. Needless to say, my kids were thrilled. And while I’m not a hotdog or little smokie kind of person, they were pretty darn good!
And well, if you want to bake your perfect little keto pigs in a blanket in the oven, then you’ll probably need a baking sheet as well! Make sure to read the tip below and in the recipe for maximum success!
As I state in the recipe, the dough is a bit sticky. I didn’t want to add more almond flour to make it less sticky, however. So it will simply take some patience on your part. Keep squishing it in your hands a while before rolling it out and yes, it will cover your hands in the dough, but stick with it.
AND GET IT COLD in the fridge – this will decrease most your stickiness issues. When rolling it out, go slow and keep lightly peeling the parchment paper off the dough on each side and then put it back and keep rolling. After a few times, it will stop sticking. It is worth the effort – trust me!
