These Easy Keto Low Carb Pigs in a Blanket are perfect for a quick meal and always a hit with the kids!
Some might call these bagel dogs, but whatever you call these, they are a fun easy meal for the kids.
My Fathead Magic Dough is perfect for savory and sweet recipes. Many of the recipes for this dough use almond flour, but for a family who has tree nut allergies like us, that won’t work. I adapted it using coconut flour and have made so many wonderful “magical” recipes that have impressed not only my family, but friends who aren’t low carb as well.
This recipe I’m sharing today was a win for my kids and hubby. I’m sure you’ve seen or tried “pigs in a blanket” with the traditional crescent roll from a can right? This version is just as tasty, a bit more work than popping open a can of dough, but still, a perfect quick lunch or dinner or kids party.
Sometimes simple recipes are the best and this one is no exception. It makes a fun, party friendly appetizer as well!

Low Carb Pigs in a Blanket
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
- 2 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs beaten
- 12 hot dogs uncured, nitrate free, I used Applegate
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Melt the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together in the microwave or on the stove until smooth in texture. Set aside.
Whisk the coconut flour, seasonings and eggs together then wet hands and mix together with the melted cheese until a dough like texture forms. Keep wetting hands as it is sticky.
Separate the dough into 12 balls about 1-1.2 ounces each. Roll each ball between two pieces of parchment to about 8 inches in length.
Wrap the hotdog with the dough starting at one end to the other. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Continue with the rest.
Top with toasted sesame seeds and black pepper if desired.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
