Paleo Pigs in and Blanket! (Gluten/Grain/Egg/Dairy Free)


No party, Sports game or family get together is complete without Pigs in a Blanket.  (Ok, maybe thats just the case with my family) But goodness do we LOVE them. I had had had to find a way to recreate one of my favorites without grain and eggs!

Instead of using croissants I pulled out my simple grain free pie crust recipe instead and voila..I had these adorable (and DELICIOUS) little guys.

Paleo Pigs in and Blanket.

  1. Make the pie crust! (use a full 1/2 tsp of salt per pie crust recipe). Roll the dough about as thick as you a pie crust between two sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Cut the dough into thin strips (I used a pizza cutter, but a sharp knife will do just fine)
  3. Roll each mini hot dog up in a strip of pie crust.
  4. Place on a cookie sheet. Brush each little pig in a blanket with a little water.
  5.   Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes.  *NOTE: this pie crust does not get very dark or golden when its baked! You'll know the pigs in a blanket are done when the dough is firm to touch and the hot dogs appear to be cooked!
  6. Remove from oven, serve with ketchup and mustard!

    Are the psyllium husks necessary for the taste or texture?
